Home again!
Finally back home.

Somewhat knackered.

Annoyed because I can't get hold of a certain firm to arrange something I want to do for someone really special. :-(

Ho hum.

Current Mood: tired tired

Um, I wouldn't know where to start!

Buying me a steam train?

I will get some money for working over the weekend, but not quite enough to do that. :-))

Actually, one alternative I've found involves a canal boat and a steam train.

Now ya see, you've got us all curious now....

Ah well, it's for a friend, and given my difficulty in making friends, all of them are special. :-)

It's a new trip organised by the canal firm and the railway, they can do it because the Ashby canal runs alongside the Battlefield Line steam railway.

You can go in either direction but they recommend the following.

Take the boat from their base. A 3 hour cruise brings you to the top end of the railway.

Look round the station and museum then take the train back down.

At the other end walk back to the boatyard via the site of the Battle of Bosworth Field.

This way round the trip starts at 10am, if you go the other way you end up back at the boatyard at around 6pm.

I should have asked: how far is the walk back to the boatyard at the other end?
