Watercress line open day

Spent an enjoyable couple of hours watching the stream trains on the Watercress line, taking a few shots and generally enjoying the atmosphere.  Takes me back to being a child visiting my grandparents in Liverpool, where the docks feeder line ran along the back of the houses opposite, but up on a raised embankment, so from a childs point of view it looked like the trains were on top of the houses, happy times.
