what seems like a short time ago, we were waiting for the larch to burst

Hi Tony, I always like hearing about your bus and train trips. We thought you'd be interested to hear about one we did a few years ago obviously before we moved down to the South. North West Trains were selling tickets on Special Offer for a limited distance so 3 of us decided to use them. On the day of the trip we got on our first train at Arnside and went to Barrow, changed there for another train which was going up the coast but we went as far as Sellafield. This was as far as we could go on the tickets we had. Had an interesting time there watching men with Geiger counters checking things. The train coming down the coast arrived and we went down to Lancaster. Changed again here and onto the Windermere service. Arrived there with plenty of time to go into Booths for some snacks to supplement our packed lunches. Then it was back down to Lancaster where we changed again, by this time we were getting some funny looks from the staff on the station. This time it was off to Morecambe, we stayed on the train there before returning to Lancaster. Lastly it was back to Arnside on the Barrow train where it was off the station and into the Fish and Chip shop for a well deserved and very good meal. We had had a day which we often remember, it had been great fun and we had been over Carlisle bridge 6 times. Regards, Kath in Hampshire.
