We are in the process of updating our railroad WebSite

Part of this includes the Central New England Railway. We did not invent this: it all came to us from Bernie Rudberg. Bernie was the ultimate railfan…….about the Central New England Railway.

But Google/Alphabet decided to squash Bernie because his WebPages were not “friendly” to  IPHONES and other “portable” users.

The dark-en deepen-eth


The nights are coming so early and the clouds have been so thick and low lately that it seems to me I have to start evening chores straight after lunch or I won’t be done by dark. Sunset is at 4.24pm.

Luckily Our John has taken to the milking and is doing very well, so while he milks I can zoom around the farms feeding and watering and be back inside by 4pm when it begins to get dark. My animals go to sleep at dark so I like them to be all tucked up according to their natural rhythms when it is cold.
