Little Egypt's second venture into the world of preserved steam railways continued from Wroxham to Sheringham.
|Once at Sheringham, we had a hasty lunch, before heading back to the station to pick up the train. Personally, I was a little disappointed because the loco was a nasty little Hunslet industrial, worse still, fitted with a Giesl oblong ejector, so that we all knew the sounds would not be as loud as they should be.|
|As the train shuffled along this delightful coastal line, we were a well-behaved and cheerful bunch, warmly welcomed by the guard, who apologised for the absence of a buffet car.|
|John Bangs was so overcome by the emotion and beauty of it all, not to mention Ravensbourne's hospitality, that he drifted into the land of Nod.|
|In true Little Egypt style we undertook some energetic dancing at Holt, while the loco ran round, before we went back to Sheringham ...|
|... to dance on the seafront. Dave Jukes, of course, felt obliged to demonstrate his stick technique to members of the crowd.|
And so another successful Little Egypt venture was completed. We danced and sang and drank and enjoyed the wonderful sights and
sounds of steam-driven transport. It really is a perfect mixture.
Back on the coach, some slept and some just smiled.
