It was very well attended so the craft activities and face painting at Ingrow West Station was a hive of activity this week.
Even without the children’s activities, Ingrow Station is a great day out because it is truly idyllic. The gardens by the side of the track are meticulously manicured and the station boasts stacks of vintage suitcases, trunks and many other objects to take you back in time. Even the waiting room and toilets are truly vintage! Not to mention the sight of the steam train roaring into the station – truly glorious.
I have to say, Paddington Bear face painting was a bit of a challenge. In fact, painting Paddington’s red hat was far easier than trying to capture that furry face from Peru but it was all good fun and a great success.
The steam train was fantastic and I can’t wait to get a day off to take a trip on this amazing railway which is almost entirely staffed by volunteers.
