We found the perfect way to honour a longstanding volunteer - name a carriage after her! Jean Watson used to watch the trains toing and froing at Paignton with her uncle when she was a child. After a nursing career in London and Cambridgeshire she returned to Devon and began her volunteering with us here at Dartmouth Steam Railway.
In Jean's own words, we have been her second family and we acknowledge what she has done for us over the years, her volunteering work has been incredible - and often boosted morale with her homemade lemon cakes!
