A trip back in time on a Steam Train

9th November

For many of our residents this was a wish come true.  A trip down memory lane on a Steam Train.

The Watercress line in Hampshire used to carry people to war, transport evacuees, take people on holiday and transport goods in the area.  The railway allows anyone to have the experience of riding a steam train through the countryside.

It was a perfect day after a rainy start.  Residents and staff had a private carriage which was very cosy with a picnic on board.  Rolling through the countryside, seeing the steam flow by the windows, smelling the coal burning away was nostalgic.  

We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip, would highly recommend for anyone to experience.  You can see a few videos following the links below:
