Let it... oh it has!

Unusually we managed to find some real snow on our post Christmas steamy day trip to the GCR at Loughborough today. It's surprising how different conditions can be just 40 miles from home.

The GCR also provides a welcoming refreshment room with a real fire. The all day breakfast went down very well too.

We go to the GCR quite regularly. Somehow we always seem to get this loco

The last train of the day and the gas lamps are lit at Rothley

The loco ready to retire for the evening. Having watched the crew struggling with the couplings in the freezing darkness I pondered whether to recommend DGs to them.

All together now... Ahhh!

I was given a present of meal for two in their Saturday evening dining service for the Summer. Been a few years since we were at the GCR, looking forward to it...

I've not done one of the GCR dining trains myself Neal but I'm sure you will enjoy it.
