That 's a rather harsh term for our weekend at Afton Station. "Feast" seems like somewhat of an unkind way to describe the incredible crowds that electrified the Station with their presence on Saturday. And "famine", although accurately describing the paucity of visitors, disregards that each and every one of them was most welcome. Nevertheless, the fact remains -- we had over 110 visitors on Saturday and 7 on Sunday. Sometimes it just happens that way, and it certainly makes working at Afton Station a challenge!
Our 7 visitors came from Langley OK, Rogers AR, Lees Summit MO, Quebec Canada, and Minneapolis, MN.
We have a problem here at Afton Station, and what a happy problem it is! We have run out of space for wall-signing! Never did we imagine that so many folks would sign the walls of our work room, but now it's getting a bit out of hand, with people standing on chairs to sign close to the ceiling and covering the electric box and door jambs with writing, too. The problem is that we have some nice vintage signs in that room and we'd like to make sure no one signs those! So, we've decided to move all the signs and other memorabilia into one of the showrooms and give over the entire work room to autographs. Some have suggested we just paint over some of the signatures to make room for more, but I just can't accept that solution. I want to keep them all. So, hopefully by next week we will have freed up enough wall space for another year or so to collect the wonderful names of the wonderful visitors who have passed through our building.
