Meanwhile back at the Dockyard....

Friends of Chatham Traction were at Chatham Historic Dockyard's Salute to the 40s Weekend again on 16th-17th September. As last year, some interesting, and interested, people dropped by and we made a few more contacts, one from Australia. The display of descriptive panels showing what we're about had been re-jigged and improved another step. We were also a bit happier with our display of wares.

The Dockyard destination shown is a mounted print of an actual Chatham Traction destination blind. We're wondering if this idea could be developed into a product range of gifts or mementos for exiled Medway folk or anyone looking for something different. Anyone fancy the Wagon-At-Hale or Burma Way? Borstal, even...? Comments welcome!

Mention should be made of the other one-time Luton Depot bus with Dockyard associations. Former Maidstone & District Atlantean 558 LKP has been at the Dockyard for some years, and after some concerted effort by Peter Watson, his family and a few volunteers is now really coming together. Nice one guys!
