K and I are off on another of our jaunts tomorrow, so in this post, I plan to repeat the ‘clues’ that I gave all my readers last time. You have to guess where we are going and also how we will be getting there. Last time I think I made it far too easy for my readers, so this time the clues will be far more subtle.
I will be using Bing for the clues but you can use Google although it might not come up with quite the same outcome as Bing, so do take this into consideration. So enjoy and here goes!
Clue 1. This locomotive hauled the very last steam train for British Rail on August 11th 1968.
Clue 2. We depart from a city currently playing host to some Kings of Leon.
Clue 3. The route we will take was the last great railway mainline to be built in the UK. It was completed in 1876.
Clue 4. It is considered to be one of the most picturesque railway journeys that this country has to offer.
Clue 5. Our destination is a city that is 2000 years old and contains a Castle and an Cathedral.
for this outing we are accompanied by J and this will be the first time that he has ever been on a steam pulled train before, so I am looking forward to his reactions when he sees the multitude of photographers, enthusiasts and general interest that such a journey tends to invoke. How will he react when he sees all the route lined with people waving, snapping and generally watching us go by?
We have only 2 hours and 50 minutes to spend in our destination, so we are going to have to really pelt around taking it all in! (if that is at all possible) My trusty Samsung camera will be accompanying me as always, so lot’s of snaps will be uploaded afterwards.
I have probably made it far too easy again, but its not easy setting up the clues, try it yourself!
TG Have fun everyone and enjoy the bank holiday weekend won’t you?
