Carols and Ales on Rails

To round off an already enjoyable day there was a Carols and Ale train from Skipton to Ribblehead and back this evening.   We got on at Settle by which time drink had been taken and it showed.   Beer had come courtesy of Settle Brewery.   Port and hot mulled cider (very pleasant) had come from Aldi.

Pat and I went through the train serving mince pies.   Two carol services were taking place at either end of the train, being cheer-led by FoSCL signbal box volunteers and members of the clergy.   Canon Graham Bettridge was at one end and the Rev Dr Neil Kendra was at the other.   Both are characters and good sports.   Here is the Rev Dr Neil Kendra (who has featured on this Blog before):

And here is our train at Ribblehead Station, having gone over the viaduct and reversed.
