Bonfire Night on a steam train

What’s better than a great fireworks display? Travelling there on a steam train! I went to the same event at the Great Central Railway last year and it’s a lot of fun – excitement and bright lights in the winter darkness, what’s not to love about fireworks?!

(And I have a secret love of steam trains, I think it’s the romanticism of travelling in such old vehicles, the smell of the steam, the sound of the whistle and the chug of the engine, the old coaches with compartments…it’s like travelling into the past…)

  1. Lovely photography of the fireworks! It sounds like you had a great evening… I too have a bit of a “thing” for steam trains – anything old really.
