Here are some of the photos we took today.
|The engine that pulled us from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead|
on the Bluebell Line
|The signal box at Kingscote|
|We went through a tunnel|
|And under a few bridges|
|Saw some antiques|
|Saw some other trains|
|Crossed the Greenwich Meridian and back again|
|Then we went to Eridge where we found an engine named "Ugly"|
|And this was the last stop Ugly pulled us to before returning|
|Taking on water for the return trip|
|The gates at on of the level crossing had to be manually operated|
Normally they have someone at the gate operating it for them but they were a little short staffed so the guard had to get off the train, close the gate, wait for the train to go past, open the gate before climbing back on board the train. Glad it was him and not me as I don't think my knees would handle climbing onto the train from ground level, it's hard enough from the platform.
Tomorrow we go to Ashford for 3 nights and from there we will be visiting Dover as well as a few other places.
