So we are settled back into something like the old routine, except we couldn't get out in the garden in the teeth of a Levante wind. 10 minutes and it felt that every ounce of moisture and energy had been sucked out of us. It went on for almost 9 days and although there is a lull today, we hear it will be back any time now.
Anyway, I said I'd post some holiday pics and here are just a small number to show steam locomotive stations and trains as they have been renovated by enthusiastic volunteers over the years, even down to the pre-War advertisements on the stations.
First, here's a pic of a de-luxe 1st class carriage with its red velvet upholstery.
