See what I mean? Friday was a quiet night in, I started some knitting whilst the man himself got the ukulele out for some practise.
Fortunately the clouds started to clear the next day and we walked round the corner to the Nene Valley Railway and waited for a train to appear. Lovely little station to hang around on.
The plan was to have a ride on the train, explore the other stations and end up in Peterborough for a couple of hours.
More unusual engines awaited us at the next stop including this beauty from Switzerland.
and, of course, Thomas the Tank Engine.
Future projects included the restoration of this building which will require a serious amount of funding.
and this one, not so old (1911) although I would swear that old Henry is checking his phone.
I can be a bit of a railway nerd, its how I was brought up. as I hobbled into Peterborough I spotted a rather nice bridge and checked it out on the way back.
speak soon, next time will be a knitting/spinning update as usual. xx
