In the sidings it stood gleaming proudly

restored to it’s former glory

boiler stoked the engine full steam ahead

slowly shunted over the points

and coupled to six passenger coaches

as along platform forecourt approaches!


Enthusiasts mingled closely on the concourse

excitedly taking pictures of the loco

eager to see and hear it’s unique sound

ready to get on and enjoy the trip

jostling to board and feel that sensation

all eagerly waiting to leave the station!


Picking up speed into the open countryside

people thrilled at the train journey

taking in all the noise and smells of steam

talking enthusiastically about the trip

soaking up the nostalgia filled with pride

as they travelled on their dream ride!


Families on board children find it hard sitting

on the edge of their seats and aisles

onward they chug as the whistle blows

reaching its destination comes to a stop

a short break before the return journey home

so passenger can take a short roam!


That time to reflect on an historic wonderful trip!
