fbb is about to have a short holiday in North Wales and, whilst Mrs fbb enjoys the luxurious shopping experience in Caernarfon and Porthmadog (?), fbb will be travelling the full length of the line. Apparently an essential purchase to be made by Mrs fbb is a tub of soothing cream for application to fbb's ample posterior after two and a half hours on a hard wooden bench seat. Ouch!
P.S. The Wisbech and Upwell "tram" locomotives are the inspiration for Toby the Tram Engine, who operates, as children of all ages know, on the Island of Sodor, courtesy of the late and Reverend Wilbert Awdry.
A fantastic ride, although the on-street bit was, indeed, disappointingly short. And Mrs fbb forgot to buy the ointment!
