Retrospectives - Looking back at old memories to bring the past into the future.
A visit on a rather wet day to Severn Valley Railway and their engine house.
The ticket office was wonderful and a real step back in time to the Miss Marple days of old.
The arrangements of cases and trunks and so on arrayed on the platform and around the station really added to the atmosphere.
You cannot really see from these pictures, but the line passes by a Safari Park, and this was the elephant enclosure, complete with elephant in the picture below!
I apologise for the blurriness, I have kept these shots as they show if nothing else the progression of my photography!
Although it was a wet day on our visit, it was a great day out I remember and if you have train fans in your family, they would love it I am sure, but it would be a good day out even if you are not a train fan for the most part. What could be nicer than sitting back and watching the world go by! There is something for everyone and if you want to just relax you can and if you are more serious about trains there is lots to see and do and find out too.
