Mid Hants in the rain
Yesterday saw a trip to the Mid Hants in the pouring rain with Mrs F's granddaughter - a four year old who had never been on a train, let alone a steam powered one where she could be hung out of the window, be invited onto the footplate and go home with a filthy coat. Not a line I'd rush to visit again - mainline steam yes, but little access to sheds and not the most inspiring ride. In fact if I hadn't had the company of a little bundle of calories with a strange interest in the mechanics of screw couplings and hoses I'd have been disappointed.
