Back in the summer, 2017, we had relatives to stay, and we took them to travel on the steam train from just outside of Holt to Sheringham on the North Norfolk Coast. When we reach Sheringham, we explored the lovely little seaside resort with them. This is just to remind me that we do have nice weather, but today we had snow, which later turned into icy rain, not sure which I dislike the most…..the rain I think. The first photo I took when we reached the beach, was this lovely family enjoying an old fashion day at the seaside.
The first photos are of the train at different stops on the way and the rest are Sheringham in the sunshine.
Sheringham Railway Station, in Norfolk, is one of my favourite haunts for taking photos. Normally there are steam trains, but on this day in 2017, it was a diesel locomotive at work. I switched my attention to the human element in making a train station run smoothly and a wonderful job they do and will go into my ‘Occupation Category’ I have left the last photo coloured, as the station is really something of a bygone age and looks equally good in b&w and colour.
Santa’s Special Train was pulled by the Black Prince engine last year 2016, at Sheringham Train Station on the North Norfolk Coast. We didn’t go on the trip, as my husband would not let me hijack a small child to see Santa, as our small grandson lives in Kent, so I just had to take photos instead. I did take lots of Christmas jumpers, and many more, but this post is really about Santa’s Train and the people who make it happen 🙂
In my last post, I explained I am trying to do a post on Sheringham Train Station on the North Norfolk Coast, but Christmas jumpers keep popping up. I took the photo of my father-in-law, in the blue fleece talking to Father Christmas, oops no, I mean the train driver, but suddenly a Christmas jumper popped up. Not just a jumper but the whole works, so if I was having a Christmas jumper competition, this would be the winner 🙂 I just hope no more pop up.
I found another Christmas jumper, quite like this one, decorated with gingerbread men and snowman. I am trying to do a post on Christmas at Sheringham Train Station, on the North Norfolk Coast, but lots of Christmas jumpers and snow ladies keep popping up, which is lovely really, because they do put a smile on your face 🙂
This photo is blurry, as the train started to move the moment I clicked, but I like it. The reason why I saved it, this little chap is on his first visit by steam train to see Father Christmas, and he is wearing a tiny Christmas jumper.
