...a day of vintage beauty and steam train rides

Yesterday we went to the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre for steam train rides with Paddington bear.  

It was all rather good fun.  The Wee Man and Big Man definitely enjoyed themselves and I really enjoyed oohing and aahing at all the vintage goodies that were used as props.  There were endless vintage luggage displays.  Just look at the gorgeousness. 

And tucked away in one of the train trucks in the museum I found this beauty...

...a 1920's Frister and Rossmann sewing machine.  The detail on it was simply gorgeous and it really didn't befit it's surroundings in a dusty old train truck.  I admit I did have a momentary desire to "rescue" it from it's surroundings but reality knocked some sense into me.  It really was gorgeous.  

Some more pics of vintage lushness...

But the bestest, bestest moment of the whole day was this.....


  1. Looks a fab day out - a pleasant change from the normal mix of steam trains & Thomas the Tank Engine. Cute pic of little man & Paddington :)

  2. Sounds like you had a really fun day out.

  3. We love steam trains as well. Doesn't little man and Paddington look they are deep in conversation!
