Our day out with a Picnic Sunday July 21st We met up at Buckfastleigh Steam Railway for breakfast. A parking area in front of the station had been reserved - the station master ushered us into position before going for breakfast. After breakfast the station master took us on a guided tour explaining all the very interesting things they have on display. This involves trips on the trains also the engineering works for refurbishing of the engines and rolling stock is carried out. They also have a large area dedicated to model railways. There was lots of interest in our cars, with lots of people looking as we drove off towards Dartmoor stopping at the Two Bridges Hotel for some refreshments. The sun was shining and the temperature was well up into the high 20s. We were going to have the picnic at Shipley Bridge by the Avon dam, but as there were lots of visitors to the best areas, we decided to stop in a sheltered spot that was not too busy for the picnic. What a good day out, the weather was fantastic also the company and we were driving our TRs what more do we want.
