Grand Opening and Final Run

We're moving, just as the W&MR nears completion. Sad but true, house already sold, and the new owner doesn't want the railroad. So up it all comes. But before we do that, we'll have a combined Grand Opening and Final Run. Luckily I happened to be scheduled this month for a visit by the Wellington Garden Railway Groupies. Here's the invitation I produced.

Only some readers will know that a hundred years ago the Wellington and Manawatu Railway (note the subtly different spelling) was a genuine railroad near my home, and the railroad name and logo in that invitation are variations of the original.
