Whisked Away on the Rails

On Monday, Curtis 'gave' me my birthday present - a trip on an old steam engine from the 1930's! 

The organisation Friends of the Rail restores old steam trains and every so often they do a trip for the public. It was so much fun, we explored the old station, watched the huge fire where they shovel in the coal to keep it all going and enjoyed the 'choo-choooo' at every passing station (yes - it really went 'choo chooo'!  We spent the day in Cullinan -a sweet little town with just enough to explore for a few hours. Plenty of quaint restaurants and some lovely green spaces! A picnic under a tree, a coffee and a stroll later, we were back on the train en route home.

It was the perfect day!
