Thomas comes steaming down

Thomas The Tank Engine on the Churnet Valley Railway

The 'high' season for the Churnet Valley Railway is coming to an end, so they are pulling the stops out with all sorts of extra attractions to pull in visitors.

I was enjoying a pint at The Black Lion, which lies by the railway line in a quiet part of the valley, and had strolled out for some fresh air ... only to see Thomas The Tank Engine suddenly steaming down upon me.  Mildly terrifying.
It meant I had to have another drink.


  1. Kids would have a lot of fun seeing that!

  2. Ah...this isn't too far from Coventry. You've given me an idea :).
