Stormy Weather

There's no sun in the sky but quite a few tourists have turned up so far for the Easter bank holiday, many wandering noticibly bemused by the high number of empty shops throughout the town and the flat grey expanse that Dreamland has become. Their collective expectations of a ghost train rather than a ghost town haven't been met and it's rather obviously going to have a negative effect on the tales they'll take home with them and decrease the likelyhood of them returning, especially when towns a similar distance from the smoke such as Brighton, Hastings or Southend are so bright, clean and entertaining to the casual visitor.
