Enjoy Steam & Scones, the fabulous 40’s evening on the Talyllyn Railway courtesy of Aspergers Fundraiser, on July 31st!
Simply turn up at Tywyn Wharf by 7:00pm and you’ll be shown by a steward to your coach. Then, you’ll return to the Wharf for a 1940s dancing evening! It couldn’t be more simple and what’s more, it’s all free!

Lol there’s going to be a doggone special aspergers train on the Talyllyn Railway.
I can’t stop freaking laughing. That’s so awesome.
Watch the “dance” afterwards turn out to be a bunch of folks sitting quietly with their Nintendo 3DS systems playing Pokémon.
And I’m a few thousand miles too far east to attend. Life isn’t fair.

The remaining rail routes that pass through the East Riding of Yorkshire to the coastal resorts are characterised by pleasant though rather featureless countryside. There are long stretches of straight, level track bordered by relatively inaccessible agricultural land. Finding a good curved section for more interesting photography proved to be something of a challenge. Accessing a decent vantage point on that curve turned out to be like a trip into the Amazon rain forest! So dense was the undergrowth that the only option was to walk about half a mile along the bed of a shallow stream that wended it’s way lazily through the ‘jungle’. Fortunately, the humidity meant a reasonable exhaust was on offer as ‘Oliver Cromwell’ raced by heading towards the seaside town of Bridlington.
