A brilliant day out on the Torbay Express steam train service from Bristol to Kingswear, with a few hours in Dartmouth by passenger ferry (ticket included in the price). It was quite exhilarating, travelling in vintage luxury and with people and children (not that children aren't people too) waving at the train all the way. On the way out of Bristol in the morning, people came out of their backdoors, one of them in a dressing gown, to admire and wave as the steam train raced by.

And back to Bristol
