The Shakespeare Express

Snow Hill Station
Looking up Cromwell Street, Birmingham

4965 Rood Ashton Hall Steam Train 

Built in 1929 for the Great Western Railway.
 The photo above was taken at Snow Hill Station
looking between the engine and carriage.

Below is the full view taken at 
Stratford Upon Avon Station later in the day.

On Sunday we had a fun day taking a
steam train ride from Birmingham to
Stratford and back.

Unfortunately, it rained a good portion of the day.
The couple of hours we had in Stratford was
spent taking short walks with plenty of stops for tea!

That must have been fun in spite of the rain.

Quite a train too! There has been one here- I hope the business can get sorted out sometime soon, because I'd like to take the ride again.

Susan Bauer said...

That first shot drew me in. A great perspective.

That looks like a fun way to travel. I haven't been on a steam train for years and years.

Stephanie said...

Looks like a fun time!

How wonderful. There's something about steam engines, isn't there? We recently stayed in a village with a heritage railway station down in Somerset and had a grand time using the trains to travel to the coast.

I have taken modern trains, and have looked at vintage steam trains, but I don't think I have ridden on vintage steam trains . . . yet.
