"Of All The Bars In All The World"...

Hi everyone. Today I was working the Bar Car "Jessie" at Shackerstone, with Craig & Mia. It was our 2nd to last day of 'Santa Specials', with trains departing Shack at 10am, Midday, 2pm and 4pm. The loco on service was again 3803, fresh from our day out with her yesterday. My dress-code today was strictly smart, with grey trousers, black shoes and shirt with a tie. There was certainly no room for bib & brace overalls today! Throughout the day we were kept busy, serving everything from hot & cold drinks to confectionary and mince pies. The bar area of the coach was particularly popular, with a wide variety of spirits and real ales being sold. Though it was a very busy day for us, it was very enjoyable and, once in a while, it is nice to work on "Jessie". One can often find themselves repeating the famous Cassablanca quote: "Of all the bars in all the world you had to walk into mine" in a tradional American accent - I don't know why! After a long day at Shackerstone I eventually left at just gone 6pm, for the last time before Christmas. Merry Christmas guys. Sam.
