On Saturday we drove into Sussex to spend our day on the Bluebell railway. We had a little person with us and as he is a fan of Thomas the Tank Engine, as most little boys are, we thought this would be a perfect day that we could all enjoy.
The railway runs approximately 11 miles between East Grinsted and Sheffield Park and a round trip would take you around an hour and three quarters. We jumped off half way for lunch and to explore, which worked out well as we had the whole experience of the "are we there yet?", "I'm bored!" and "I'm hungry" Oh how different it is being on the receiving end of those cries.
I fell in love with the old fashioned stations. There is so much detail to be admired from the old carriages being used as shops or cafes to the vintage luggage on the side of the platform.
The boys on the other hand much preferred the engines and the trains themselves.
