Both girls have been on the Santa Special (big tick on the things you do if you are a good parent list) but I am not sure if they remember it, and also the whole gift from Father Christmas kind of overshadowed the old fashioned steam train, so it was about time they got to appreciate the glamour of old school train travel.
Back to our trip, we got day rover tickets which meant we could jump on and off as many times as we wanted. We decided to go all the way to Bridgnorth where we enjoyed a wander and a spot of lunch before heading back. It was so much fun and the girls couldn't stop pointing at things out the window. Esme even got to sit in the engine, although Ava refused as it was too noisy and dirty! Who says she is a princess!?
