Day 6 – London to Sussex

Experienced the Tube (Underground) for the first time today.  I must say I was impressed with the speed, ease of use etc.  We got the Tube to Victoria Station , which is a huge ornate building and a major station in London.  

We then had to go via normal train to East Grinstead in Sussex. Such quiet trains and the seats leave our trains for dead!  At East Grinstead a taxi was there to meet us and took us a few miles away to the historic train station, where we met Kylie and Tom who arrived via the steam train.  

We sat the newly restored carriage that Tom has helped with and Kylie also has helped by polishing the brass.  Today was the carriages first trip out!  We sat at a table and had tea, coffee, scones, jam and clotted cream.  It was brilliant, even Kylie made GF scones for the two of us (yes she is following in my footsteps with her food intollerances).  We went to Sheffield Park and back. 

The weather was misty, drizzly and very cold!  Then we returned back to Fraser Place to defrost!!!

  1. Love the steam trains, they remind me of Thomas the Tank Engine. You seem to have seen such a variety of things old and new. Keep the blogs coming. They are most interesting.
