A few pictures from the 1940's weekend at the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway.

The weather wasn't too good and I only had an hour to spend but I got a few images.

I kicked off with my customary "doggy picture".  This dog had spent the night, with it's lady
owner, in the back of this estate car.



"For you, the war is over".

The re-enactor is pointing to a sign depicting where his friend's father was posted in WW2.

"Don't tell him Pike"!



This is the "Steaming Kettle" buffet car.

Is this The Siegfried  Line?

"We're Going to Hang out the Washing on the Siegfried Line" is a popular song by Ulster songwriter Jimmy Kennedy, written whilst he was a Captain in the British Expeditionary Force during the early stages of the Second World War, with music by Michael Carr.[1] The Siegfried Line was a chain of fortifications along Germany's Western border, analogous to the Maginot Line in France. The song was used as a morale-booster during the war, particularly up to and during the Battle of France.[citation needed]
It began:
We're going to hang out the washing on the Siegfried Line.
Have you any dirty washing, mother dear?
We're gonna hang out the washing on the Siegfried Line.
'Cause the washing day is here.
