After another good nights sleep and another wonderful hearty breakfast we travelled into Hove to pick up Vivienne to go on the Bluebell Railway.
Horsted Keynes Station.
A 1930's multi platform station. You can get off the train on both sides.
The cafe is original 1930's too.
Who remembers this chocolate?
My grandad used to buy me bar everytime I visited him or he visited us.
Alex and Viv have railways in their blood! Alex' grandfather and Viv's father both made the seating for the railways. They tell a story of how they held the tacks in their teeth, and used a magnetic hammer.
Horsted Keynes is the station inn the middle. We travelled to Sheffield Park - the end of the line for lunch and to look around the engine shed.
All the engines are reminiscent of the Thomas the Tanks stories by the Rev. W Audrey
After we had something to eat, we got on the train again to East Grinsted, a very modern station and the other end of the line, the back to Hosted Keynes.
A lovely day was had by all
