Full steam ahead for another great day out

One of the great things about living in Carmarthenshire is that there is always something interesting to do right on your doorstep.

Last Sunday, I was lucky enough to be invited out on a train journey which included a three-course Sunday lunch onboard.  No, this wasn’t the Orient Express by any means. But, for me, it was as close as it gets here in Wales.

The Gwili Railway in Bronwydd, Carmarthen, is where my journey started – and the scenery and service were quality, to say the least. It certainly was an adventure and one that I had heard about many times before. But I’d not bothered to enquire further as I didn’t think that this was worthy of an afternoon out.

Well, let’s be honest, we all get it wrong . . . occasionally. This service is run entirely by the most enthusiastic volunteers that I have met.

We were served up the most delicious Sunday roast by smartly dressed waiters, as the train ambled through the type of stunning scenery that can only be found here in Wales.

Topped off with delicious apple crumble and custard, there was no better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

What an experience – and one I will definitely be repeating. Now then – where shall I go next Sunday?
