Highlights of Cris Rees’ tenure
THE HIGHLIGHTS of Cris’ time at the helm include the visit of the Duke of Gloucester, both the engine and the man, and the continuing success of Santa Specials.
Cris said: “It was a real pleasure and an honour to welcome the steam engine Duke of Gloucester, and to see the man himself ride in it was something else.
“I really love the Santa Specials and to see that continue successfully is a real treat.
“We have over 20,000 people ride on the line in four weeks.
“It is a massive operation that sees everybody pull together – it’s the Dunkirk spirit and I love it.”
