Many years ago Mum, Rob and I took the steam engine powered train (the normal trains) to London for the first time for us.
I think we just went for the day, I really don’t remember, but I don’t remember a hotel.
Rob, left, was the smart one and became a hippy and later a man of many talents (still never got to grips with Newton’s third law). Me, on the right, became a business owner. lol Go figure.
