So we were looking forward to St. Nicholas and first snow when St. Martin left it
at home. But we were looking forward uselessly. It was freezing weather on Saturday
morning without snow unfortunately. We wanted to take some winter photos when we
had trains outside. Cleaning of the line was more laborious after month´s break.
Jenda could tell about it because he was on the track with a working train longer
time than usual. The first train was delayed a few minutes because the first passengers
came punctually at ten o´clock. And Jenda told us a funny stories from the track
cleaning. We prepared a hot tea for passengers during all day. This tea came in handy
to them after ride through the park. Two battery locomotives were in operation all
day so the locotractor remained in the depot prepared for winter. The young boys
took turns in the locomotives driving. A tickets sold on the platform directly this
time. All members used asylum of the warmed clubroom and they were sipping hot drinks
here. Attendance of passengers was rather symbolical because who would be going
to the frozen park from a warmed stove? Thank you very much for all visitors, which
came to visit us on Saturday. We would like invite St. Nicholas, angels and devils
to the Park railway Olympia next year.
