One of the few things on my must see list for Yorkshire was to ride a steam train. There are several lines that actively run live steam locomotives. To make these even more special they are coal fired (increasingly around the world you find steam trains run on oil fired boilers. Oil is cleaner and easier.) This line had two different locomotives running this day, we had the rare pleasure of watching two steam trains pass one another. Just like when DG's great grandmother lived in England and Wales 100 years ago.
There's one of those near here, the Amazon and I are always threatening to take a ride.ReplyDelete
