Just back from a trip to East Anglia – and a couple of new venues for the Rail Diaries. We set out from Shropshire on a fine sunny day – and arrived at Bressingham after a torrential downpour, with flooded roads near Bury St Edmunds. It was dull and intermittently rainy for much of the afternoon – so the photos aren’t great, but we had a good time nevertheless, and a ride on all three lines included in the admission price.
The following day was much better for our Bure Valley trip, travelling from Wroxham to Aylsham and back. Aylsham was a hit with the household authorities – good food and a great second-hand bookshop! (May have to pay a return visit…) The Railway is pretty good too – those little 15″ gauge trains really rattle and roar along.
