BEER AND TRAINS

Was 5 pints an over indulgence??

Part 2

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 ..


Brrr it’s a chilly one to be walking half way up Whernside at 8-45am .. Pre breakfast to await the train ..

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 ..

 People in first class waving to the people on the hill people on the hill waving back .. and off the train went ..Choo Chooing up the hill and off into the distance

Back to Hetty after finding J who had marched ahead earlier leaving the dawdlers behind on his quest for photo at the bridge about half mile further on ..

 All in all an excellent outing

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
