Now if tea times were highlights for me on our travels,
the National Railway Museum in York was a highlight for my
"live-in gardener". He was like a little boy in a candy store.
In the roundhouse there were examples of everything
from Thomas the train to a bullet train to the Flying Scotsman.
In another wing of the museum we found trains that past
royals had traveled, even Queen Victoria's lavish royal car.
Miniature reproductions also were on display.
I loved the carts with old suitcases too.
Can you imagine sitting here waiting for the sound of the steam
engine coming down the track?
The opulence of traveling with a royal was the opportunity to have tea.
Any train lover would enjoy this museum,
even I, who didn't think she was a train lover, loved being
surrounded by these giants of transportation.
