Ok, the reason I've been a little quiet............we had a weekend away at a bike rally in Yorkshire. On the Saturday we went out to play on the Wensleydale Railway which runs along 16 miles of track from Leeming Bar to Redmire.
We waited for the train at Leyburn to start our journey.
The carriages retained a lot of their original features but sadly they still had their original springs in the seats.This made knitting almost impossible due to the bouncing around.Some of the other compartments looked like they had been restored.
The passing scenery was beautiful as ever and we all took the opportunity to enjoy it without the hindrance of crash helmets etc.
We stopped at Redmire so the engine could be placed at the rear of the train to pull us back up to Leeming Bar.
Then we travelled back to Leeming bar and Bedale where we stopped for lunch and a pint.
Then we boarded the train again for the run back to Leyburn and the steady trudge back to the rally site.
