We had a good run up, this time using the M6 toll to avoid the congestion on the M5 around Birmingham.
The site was very full when we arrived, but we still managed to get a pitch on the edge of the railway.
As usual we met up with Kathy and Rob, and shared many meals with them.
This time though Robert and Kathy came down to us twice to share meals in our caravan.
On the Thursday City of Wells was running, so I took the opportunity of using one of my members tickets to travel up and down the line behind her.
On the Friday morning the Diesel Gala started and we had trains hauled by class 60's going up and down the line. Robert and I went out to play trains for the day! I can honestly say I have never seen the trains so busy! At times we could not find a seat!
Now let the pictures do the talking!
They made quite an impressive display
On the Saturday we rode the trains again, with Mark joining Robert and I.
At about 5.00 pm Kathy collected Lizzie and together with Dennis they joined us at Bury Station.
|Dennis did want to pose by City of Wells that was taking the dining train out on the Saturday evening.|
We cleared up on Tuesday, and owing to a broken Jockey wheel the warden helped us hitch up. We left by 10.30 and headed home. We reached Chipping Sodbury Caravans just before 3.00, and they soon had it fixed!
A great trip away!
