  1. VP .. love the diversity of cool things to admire on this trip ! I almost thought you would sneak some Dr. Who in there some where ? LOL .. everyone is up to something .. I think I will go look and the untouched deck and mentally zone in on the deck-guys giving them a headache until they get their assorted body parts over here and do SOMETHING !!!

  2. Oh I remember all the train sites we visited when my son was younger(and Ringo Starr was the voice of Thomas the Tank Engine). The Digger's youthful interest in train spotting was reignited. I was the odd one out.
    I can be slightly involved if a train is moving - but standing still - snore!

  7. Hi VP. I have happy memories of a trip on that line in '92, my wife and me with our doggies Bella and Emily. I think we walked from Blue Anchor Bay to Watchet and caught the train back.

  10. Joy - we have a Dr Who special this weekend!!!!!!

    EG - I've had to adjust bigtime since joining NAH's family. They can be a lot of fun - the pictured train's rather special as it's Bittern.

    Tyra - we had a fab time thank you and I hope you did too!

    Carrie - oooooh a zoo. I haven't been to one in ages. I hope you have a great time, you deserve it :)

    Susan - tee hee!

    Nancy - it was :)

    Monica - we've done quite a few steam train trips in the States too. NAH belongs to the Cumbres and Toltec scenic railroad society. Now that trip is really something :)

    Simon - sounds about right. I love that part of the trip when the railway runs alongside the coastline.

    Becca - thank you - we most certainly did :)

    Matron - we're long overdue a trip on that line too!
