High­lights of Cris Rees’ ten­ure

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

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.”
