We visited the Bluebell Railway which has recently been extended to East Grinstead in Sussex. The Railway is run by volunteers and there has obviously been so much work around the Railway and its details.
This brought back memories of eating Robinson's Golden Shred at my Grandparents' house.
In The Railway Children, the station staff talked to the children and explained about railways. My children got to clip their tickets.
The trains were pulled by two engines coupled together and running backwards.
Beautiful country stations-easy to imagine the Railway Children watching the trains from this bench.
Signal is up-remember trying to stop the train in E Nesbit's book?
Horstead Keynes station was used as the setting for the film of the Railway Children. The signal box is in the background.
Going into the tunnel
Perhaps the up platform?
