More Steam Trains


The North York Moors Railway has launched an additional platform at Whitby Station so they can now run more trains into the resort, which means - there are more steam trains passing the cottage - ideal for you rail enthusiasts!

Very Entertaining!


Yesterday the Council arrived to re-paint the yellow lines along the roadside. This disappeared the last time they resurfaced the road - a number of years ago! First came the road sweeper to clean the surface. This only created a huge dust storm and spread the dust/grit over a wider area so they had to resort to a man and a brush! Next the lorry heated the yellow paint mixture, then 2 men painted the line using a bucket and box-like template.

In all, this involved 2 lorries and a road sweeper, 5 men, 1 brush, 2 lollipop stop & go signs and about 2 hours. And they only completed one side of the road! And they asked if I would 'put the kettle on'. However, it was more entertaining than watching the TV.
