It is the letter T across at ABC Wednesday - and T is for Train Spotting - last Saturday the Tornado and the King Edward 1 were on a visit to Shrewsbury as part of a steam event lasting all day for all concerned.
The trains on their day out I must say looked amazing - our grandson aged 10 is a railway enthusiast - he has his own engine shed ( converted garden shed!) complete with trains and a layout that has grown to all extremes and soon will burst out of the shed.
We wanted to catch the trains going down the line , us to take pics and A to gaaze in awe at the great machines.
A steam train in full flight is quite hard to capture- you either click to soon or to late!
First down the line was the King Edward and then a two hour gap between trains - so off we went to a model railway and car exhibition in the local village hall - see pis below
Timr to return to the railway line - so we climbed up and over stiles and crossed several fields in haste - the sheep looked on ...
Second train down the line was the Tornado - (featured a while back in a Top Gear programme with Jeremy Clarkson a favourite of A - our grandson) ...the Tornado was well worth the wait
A quick dash then to Shrewsbury Station to view the trains more closely - King Edward above - below the Tornado - as you can see the day was closing in - and the trains were all set for their journey back to London with their enthusiastic passengers.
Today was Time Taken out - Together To enjoy a Tumultuous Train Tour Travelling Through our local Town
