Just loved this mural on the wall in The Station Restaurant
Had been to the Haverthwaite Railway station which is in Cumbria
The highlight of the Station was the Restaurant. I think Mrs Maher and her crew did a wonderful job in welcoming the travelers and making them feel at home.
The place was tastefully decorated with a display of pictures of the old steam engines that hauled many a load.
The station itself had that old world charm with a small over bridge and signboards showing the right directions.
Saw this sign next to the ticket office
Very soon the train pulled in with the steam engine chugging away to glory.
It was a 18 minute run from Haverthwaite to Lakeside and nostalgic for many to experience the steam engine and the bogies which were used about half a century ago, but still well maintained.
The view as the train chugged along was something out of this world.
Made a three minute video on the whole journey.
Once we reached Lakeside we were ferried across in a boat. More on that in the next blog.
