on track to a bonny day
Today was train day.
It was off to Avimore for the great strathspey steam railway, whcih i have been looking forward to for months. I love steam trains. When we arrived there was big signs saying ‘steam train operating today’ then when it turned up it was a diesel loco…So to help lift my spirits of no steam we travelled first class which meant for only $6.50 more we would get a free cup of tea and a bit of shortbread.
Actually it was a lot of fun, i love trains even if they are diesel. And the tea and short bread was lovely.
After the non steam, steam railway we headed to an un-pronounceable mountain range for another train adventure. This time it was for a funicular which is also known as an inclinator.
It was super cool, my mum almost left a puddle in the carige by the time we got to the top but i loved it.
a good day all round.

I took a lot of photos today, you can invite me over for a slide night if you want to see them all.
