We bundled in coats and in my case, picnic rug, took alcohol, fold up chairs and picnic . The automotive engineer needed to stop off at Sainsbury and Miss 21 fancied a rest whilst we waited. She asked us to stay with her as 'if you go on the automotive engineer might find me sitting here later with coins around my feet'.
The next day I went on a special diesel train that was brought down to run on the newly cleared but no longer used route to Ardingly. It was a private shuttle which took me 20 mins into the country, as far as they've cleared the line. (Mr Him tipped the driver to leave me there but health and safety stepped in.) The ultimate plan is to bring steam trains from the Bluebell Railway into our station but there is clearly more work to be done. It was a one off experience that I felt I had to do, (so had Mr Him when he passed on the tip.)
