Grandpa's railway

Recently we had a mini holiday to the seaside at Llandudno with Granny and Grandpa. The highlight of the weekend were Grandpa's trains.

This amazing garden railway has been made totally by Grandpa !
Including the signal box and suspension bridge.
Grandpa spent time training his new apprentice controller in the signal box.

The weather was good so we were able to be out about. While Grandpa went to teach sailing we went to a Country Fair were we saw sheepdogs herding geese, birds of prey and dog agility demonstrations. I loved watching the skill of the chainsaw sculpture.
I can't believe we fitted so much into one weekend. Even after the tabogan run on the Great Orme there was still time for swimming , shopping and lots of crocheting with Granny in the evening. A lovely way to end the Summer holidays before the return to School and work.
