Mid Hants visit

Popped into the Mid Hants yesterday on the way down to the van.

Had a nice breakfast bap in the West Country Buffet in time to see the first service train of the day from Alresford.

So if your down that way, Breakfast bap highly recommend!

Alton and the Mid Hants

On the way back from Weymouth this afternoon, the good Mrs.D wanted a comfort break and so being on the A31 near alton we stopped off at the Station cafe and had a spot of lunch and took in the trains on the Mid Hants where the Wizard express had arrived hauled by 9F 92212

What I like about this time of year is that the steam is more visible due to the cold

Here are some clos ups of the loco

However go all this way and what turns up a GWR loco!

Which arrived on the next service train – nevermind you cannot win them all.

One thing about Alton is the number of railway posters and adverts from days gone.

Worth a fortune if they are original but probably reproductions 😦
