Thomas the Tank Engine waiting for his face

Twenty-two members met at Toddington Station and were taken on a tour of the loco sheds where we saw examples of the huge equipment used on these mammoth engines and carriages.

We also saw Thomas the Tank Engine having been brought from its home in Llangollen for this special event day

After the tour came the cream tea served on the 2.45pm train to Cheltenham Racecourse when a couple of our male members were invited to ride on the footplate for part of the journey.

A delightful journey through the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside bathed in sunshine.
