As we sit on our train waiting for the late-running 1430 departure from
Ravenglass, River Esk arrives with the train from Dalegarth
Having arrived at Dalegarth, our locomotive River Mite is turned on the
turntable ready to take the train back to Ravenglass, but we are going for a
walk down to the river.

And back they go again!
