Well, I think all the loco crews who attended enjoyed themselves, it was a good opportunity to get together and chew the fat. Those with trade stands were, on the whole, disappointed. The public were being charged £11 for adults and £7 for kids - the latter charge was dropped when the exhibitors kicked up a stink! Things were so quiet on the Wednesday that Capatin and Tim took the wagonette round York with museum staff distributing leaflets from the back which must have helped!
Was stretching the event out over a whole week sensible? I will reserve judgement on that - the "costs" (getting the locos there, etc.) had already been incurred and only staffing would have been a major daily cost but maybe a long weekend would have sufficed. Who on this forum did get there?
