After my rather irreverent post above about the age of the operators on Flintcombe, I am happy to report that two of the original East Dorset Gang of Four are still with us, including Dickie Paget who is almost 97. How wonderful to be still operating at model railway shows at such a great age. I had a good chat with him and said how much I used to enjoy his reports on activities (or lack of) in the East Dorset EM gauge group. These used to appear in the EMGS newsletter and were always the most readable item. Dickie was born in pre-grouping days, has seen the demise of the Big Four, British Railways and, given our turbulent times politically, may see the end of privatisation.

Even got a photo of "The Quarry" ...... just for record purposes of course, there may be a few comments from the Quarry-man about the conveyors and the hopper though
