The Severn Valley Railway
Blimey, it went well!
We all met at Bewdley Station on Sunday morning in the drizzly ‘orrible’rain. My rouze about telling Ellen that the train leaves at 10:00am worked a bit too well! We were there at 9:30 and it didn’t really leave till 10:30.
We had a carriage all to ourselves (good job! it was loud!)
We saw some other carriages that were all laid up for a silver service dinner on board the train. Thought that would be a lovely idea, then I saw harri bouncing up and down on the seat and the thought soon went away!
Off it chuffed nice and steady and before long we were in “Bridgo” (as a white bearded trainspotter called it!)
Up town where we lost Ellen in Woolworths and then down the pub for Sunday Lunch. Bargain! £6-50 for a Sunday roast. Poor Harri fell asleep all the way through.
After we got thrown out of there!, we had a quick go down the “Cliff railway” which brings back memories of Boddser and me skiving up town when we should have been at College.
Got the last but one train back which meant we could stop off at the new “Highley” shed where they had a kids park and a train called Gordon.
All in all a great day out and lots of fun had by all and hardly any falling out! Not quite sure while everyone said i was strangely “Nice” that day. A lesson to you all, gear up these events around food and Beer and you’ll be surprised what can happen!
