Tuesday 30 May - Welshpool and Llanfair Railway

The weather started cool and overcast but it improved during the day and the evening was fine and sunny.  We took the train to Welshpool, walked through the town and caught the steam train to Llanfair.  We were hauled by Countess my favourite because of the glorious Great Western green.

At Llanfair we met up with Kevin and John and arranged for Paul to ride the locomotive back to Welshpool. A walk through the town brought us to the Goat pub where we had a sandwich before returning to the station where we visited the carriage shed.
Bob was keeper of the menus and talked to his beer


Paul enjoyed the ride back to Welshpool and we caught the train back to Shrewsbury.
This evening we tried a pint of Skinners Mild beer at the Loggerheads.  It was easy tasting but we found it very heavy and difficult to drink.  It was almost as if we had had a meal
