A little adventure on the weekend for us. A steam train ride. Oh the excitement and the noise and the smell. The awesomeness of hanging my head out the window to get photos - the joy of the simple freedom and open window in a train brings. That lovely 'chuffing' sound as we cruise along and wow, you can actually enjoy the scenery that rolls by watching the flickering of the shadows dancing in and out of the trees.
The little old-fashioned bits that make up the train, the blinds, the latches, door handles, little lanterns standing dusty in a corner. The old light switches, the bouncy, spring-y seats. So many adventures these carriages have had, so many stories they hold.
I took a 'gazillion' photos but have contained myself here and only shown my very faves.
