West country, 7 June 2003 - 9 June 2003


It was my father's 60th birthday recently, and we took him for a day driving steam trains. Of course, we wanted it to be a surprise so although we were away for a whole weekend, he didn't actually find out what was going on until his Monday appointment with the steam doctor ...
