Mo­torail mem­o­ries

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

YOUR let­ter about Mo­torail (May 31) brought back lovely mem­o­ries. Forty years ago, when our four boys were con­sid­er­ably younger than they are now, over a pe­riod of eight years, we took the Mo­torail from Olympia to Glen­finnan. The train al­ways left first to come back and col­lect the cars, which caused great con­ster­na­tion in case it was go­ing with­out us. One year, the Royal Train was wait­ing to go into a sid­ing and the porter let us go to have a look, which I’m sure wasn’t al­lowed. We would wake cross­ing Ran­noch Moor, be­fore go­ing into the sta­tion ho­tel on our ar­rival to have a large break­fast. Frances Pres­ley, by email
