Me, not so much.
So when the MIL suggested a day out on the 'Valley Rattler', I wasn't that keen. But then I saw Mr BC trying to contain his excitement at the thought of such an adventure, I thought I would man up & take one for the team. It was only one day, & my family would love it.
|The journey begins!|
|A large display at the train station. Well worth a look!|
|Look! Real steam!|
|Many enthusiastic amatuer dramatists accompanied our journey. Bonus!|
|They seemed very eager to chat with MonkeyBoy.|
|He seemed very keen to chat with them.|
|Jeez, he went on.|
|Ready for adventure: departure 9AM|
|Arriving at OneHorseBumFuck for a 30 minute morning tea stop with 500 jolly day trippers. |
The Gentleman checks his wallet as the band strikes up 'Welcome Tourist Dollar'
|MonkeyBoy making a spectacle of himself. Again.|
|Teenage Daughter in denial about the amenitys. |
Yes, it really is that building with the squatting skeleton mural.
|Back on the train, another opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery.|
|It's so green this time of year.|
|Look cows! Oh, you missed them.|
|Find a happy place.|
|The inlaws enjoying the cosy confines of our cabin. A 10 seater, very spacious! |
You hardly noticed the 2 small boys at all, & they where soooo well behaved.
That esky takes up hardly any room.
|When we arrived at Imbil the amatuer dramatists where staging a re enactment of a Bushranger hold up.|
|This quickly deteriorated into everyone shooting each other. After a few hours to buy lunch & peruse the local shops, we came back to see the captured Bushranger being flogged, before once more, returning to our cabin for the long trip back. |
|Poor Nanny looks a little tired, unlike the Gentleman. Full of beans!|
