We don't win anything, but we won a prize!
Previous post - while we were at the Steam Fair we joined the West Somerset Railway Association, because we joined that day particular day we were entered into a draw to have lunch on the Quantock Belle dining car.
We had a phone call one evening, we don't normally answer phones calls if we are eating but we did on this occasion. We were told we had been entered into the draw and our name was pulled out. Because we live the 'wrong' end of the line, they gave us tickets to travel the one and half hour journey to the other end of the line and come back on the Quantock Belle. We could have gone the out to Bishop Lydeard by car but what would we have done in Minehead for a couple of hours.........? Perhaps come home..................... anyway we decided to just have lunch (click to enlarge and see bottom of menu)

We decided to fore go the Cream Tea, and rode out to Bishop Lydeard, on the early train, we only had a forty minute wait then we were aloud on our train to come back. It was not something on the top of our to do list, in fact I don't think it was on the list at all. It was all very nice, the journey took just about two and half hours, going very very slowly.
