Breakfast at Tiffanys
The KESR has long been a favourite and is under an hour away. We thought being a term time Tuesday that it would be quiet... oh no. A schools party and a rush of tourists meant that it was sharp elbows all the way on the outward. I even got thrown of the four-wheel coach by Keith Harcourt (better known for his Kappa board layouts) wearing his guard hat.
The return trip, after a breakfast in Tenterten, was deliberately on the 108 DMU - a much nicer experience all round no screaming kids wanting a 'steam train ride' (ick) a front seat so that you can see up the track and in my opinion a mode of transport much more in keeping with the line.
