We've been moored at Trevor Basin the last couple of days waiting for parts so the gas work can be done on the boat. It's been very busy with visitors to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct nearby, but all is quiet once the evening comes.
Today we caught the bus to Llangollen with nothing really planned. We spotted the steam engine at the station and went down to see about a trip. We took advantage of our age and bought senior tickets. We were in time for the one o'clock and thoroughly enjoyed the trip in the heritage carriage. Nothing beats the noise and smell of the steam engine as it travels along the line. It brought back memories when Eric was a young boy and lived next to a railway shunting yard and went for rides with the drivers.
A toastie and a cuppa at the Station Café finished the trip and after a quick shop at the Spar we caught the bus back to Trevor to walk back down the hill to the boat.
Tomorrow hopefully the work on the boat will be done and we can make our way across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct heading back to Whixall Marina.
