You're never too old to enjoy the wind whistling through your hair, on the back of a miniature steam train.....I'd taken the children along to the Broomy Hill miniature railway in Hereford for the afternoon. We're lucky to have this so close by - it's open to the public every 2nd and last sunday of the month from April to October. There are two tracks in a lovely setting down by the river, and it's run by enthusiastic members of the Hereford Society of Model Engineering: the home of cranks and eccentrics (their words not mine!)
The kids made a beeline for the little ticket office, and soon we were all aboard.
Tickets checked, a big puff of steam and we were off, slowly chugging out of the station.
Journey over, and I managed to hold on to the children for long enough to feed them a speedy picnic, before they charged off again. There was loads to see and do because this was a special event to mark the Society's 50th Anniversary. No surprises that a large pool of water was popular with the kids....more impressive miniature models splashing anyone who got a bit close.
......and it wasn't just boats....the ducks were remote control too!
Plenty of model trains, displays and exhibitions to keep any enthusiast happy, as well as something for Thomas fans.
....she was much more interested in this though...!
