Fathers' Day

Visited the railway recently for the Fathers Day Lunch on board the train.

From the initial booking right through to the wave goodbye on the platform the volunteers who run this wonderful little railway were absolutely fantastic. They couldn't do enough for us and the love and commitment really does shine through.

As for the food, to be honest I wasn't expecting much but they served three faultless courses and the local bottled cider helped it go down. We had leek and potato soup which was rich and creamy, full sunday roast with all the trimmings and as much gravy as you wanted. This was followed by homemade apple pie with a light custard. We would have struggled to finish everything but the service was relaxed and we had plenty of time between each course.

The atmosphere on board was great as we went up and down the railway, stopping to stretch our legs and explore the signal box. The chef came out to greet everyone and four hours after boarding we went back to our car fully satisfied all round.
