A day out

July 13, 2008

Firstly, doing the shopping on Sunday, I looked, and there are new stickers on the Gordon Ramsay book in Waitrose, showing that there is only £5 off. I noticed another book, by the MD of Waitrose, was also on offer at £5 off, but no sticker on that. (A book about picnics).

Anyway, mother wanted a drive out, so I headed northwestward, to the scarpment of the Chilterns, then drove southwestward along it. When we got to Chinnor, I noticed that the steam loco of the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway was in, so stopped for some pics.

The engine. It was obviously the end of the day (an hour after the last journey), and was gently loosing steam.

They have other trains, such as this diesel loco, which does most of the running. Behind it are various carriages, in various states of disrepair.

Do note the season ticket notice in the foreground!

Update, 15.II.09 The “diesel loco” is a Class 121 Diesel Multiple Unit, known as a bubble car.
