With the publicity that surrounds the troubles and woes in the world these days it can sometimes be difficult to know what news is real and what is fake. Occasionally I get extremely fed up with it all and that’s when I take time out from watching and listening to ‘serious’ stuff, coming back to life by moving aimlessly around the web looking for a bit of light relief – and ‘that’s’ when I discover little gems that keep me from wondering ” are we all going bonkers and the end of the world is nigh”
This little video is doing the rounds again on social media.
I will unashamedly say it is just a ‘joy to watch’ and can’t keep the smile off my face as I do so.
Train travel is part of my makeup- 90% of the males on my father’s paternal line worked ‘on the railways’ in Northern Ireland. My grandad (who I never knew, he being gone before I arrived) worked his way up from a general railway worker (aka labourer) through Fireman to Engine Driver. I do so love train travel – but sadly (unlike Madeline) I don’t have a record of my first ride 😔
Just watch and enjoy – and smile 😎😊
