A couple of Sundays ago we enjoyed a cream tea with a difference....on board an old-fashioned steam train travelling through the Lancashire countryside. This was a surprise treat....and I would never have guessed how we were going to spend the afternoon!
We arrived at Bury station to be greeted by a scene straight out of Harry Potter!
The East Lancashire Railway has been restored to its historical glory and the vintage Pullman style dining carriages retain many of the original 1920s features.......polished wood panelling, sliding windows and plush velvet seating .... the perfect place to enjoy a cream tea....a very English tradition.
The whistle was blown and we were off on our journey.......
