Training to relax!!







Our day on the trains began at Brundall. We knew the train was coming when they closed the crossing gates. From Norwich we then got the Wherry Line train to Sheringham. Grace couldn't understand why the train went backwards from Cromer. Hard to explain to a two year old!

When we got to Sheringham the Black Prince was just getting up steam. In fact, I've since been told by Mel the platform supervisor at Weybourne that it was J15 and NOT the Black Prince. The controls look simpler than the usual steam engine. We went to Holt pulled by the red engine (do you know the class?) They topped up the water tank before leaving us there. We looked around the station and shops and cafe then watched as the Black Prince arrived to take us back to Sheringham. You can't visit the seaside without having fish and chips then a drink at a seaview pub.
We visited the MO museum with all the old lifeboats and Grace loved the workmans toolshop. What did we de before power tools? From the watchtower we could see the fishing boats returning and so we went to the promenade where Grace could get a closer view as they hauled the boats across the beach.

There was a delay on the return train because of a signalling problem but as the weather was so nice it meant we just had to have another ice cream while we waited. A tired little girl slept most of the way to Norwich but by the time we'd boarded our last train home she was bright as a button again! I think someone wants a train set for Christmas - probably daddy!

THE VIDEO WILL BE POSTED UP THIS WEEK.
