Was 5 pints an over indulgence??
The answer is both yes and no .. YES we’re all up bright and bushy tailed and NO five pints wasn’t an over indulgence
Boots.. Coats..Gloves donned ..
Over the brow of the first hill only to find we’re not on our own .. The worlds train enthusiasts massed on the tripod covered horizon ..video drones in the sky ..Dogs on leads .. Children off leads .. As the time grew closer and the wind chill got under the warm layers there was such a buzz of expectation ..
Railway Children excitement .. and we wait..Late train .. Now after 10am .. Getting colder .. Then we hear the Toot Toot and a wisp of smoke on the horizon .. Here they come .. Cameras clicking..What a sight as the sun peeps through as the 2 Black 5’s with a full head of steam come over the viaduct ..
