Stephenson Heritage Railway – June 2019 – Part 2

Part 1 HERE

Sophie and I enjoyed the train ride so much we went on it twice πŸ™‚ as the ticket covered you for as many goes as you liked.

Shabby chic

They are still renovating the carriages, so they do look a bit shabby, but it didn’t matter to us, it was easy to ignore that and imagine being in Brief Encounter πŸ™‚

Of course we and all the other kids ignored that!

On the return journey we were just in normal class as someone got to our first class carriage before us (gits πŸ˜€ )

Good job we didn’t need to ‘go’

second class carriage
Tempting…..but didn’t πŸ™‚

Scenes from the windows

Back at the station we said our thanks to the guard

and to the Station Master who was happy to pose for a photograph

and I couldn’t resist a sneaky shot of this little lad waiting his turn to go on the train

The wonder years

That’s it for today, but we haven’t finished with the railway, as we got to look around the work shop, and Sophie got to drive a train, so stay tooned for next time:)

  1. We have a vintage train here locally too, though I don’t know if it is still in business. It provides a fun ride through orchards and ranches, the backs of houses and industrial areas. Things like this, though nostalgic, really make you think, too – different time, different age, different everything. Nice shots, too – love the little boy at the end and peeking out the window.
