Summer Trip 2013

 

The Track

After consulting with parents and giving the children the final choice we went on the Keith & Dufftown Railway, Choo, Choo!

We met at Dufftown Railway Station and headed off on the Train to Keith at 0930 hours.

The children all enjoyed the journey and were given a booklet from the railway staff so they could see where they were going and what to look out for.  We saw cows, sheep, dogs, chickens and donkeys!

The train stopped to throw some carrots to the donkeys to the delight of all the passengers!

The children were invited to go up to see the driver and they all blew the horn for which they received a card so they could show their families how clever they had been.  Some of the boys and girls also got to wear the drivers hat!

We would like to say a big thank you to all the staff on the train as they were very kind and helpful making sure we didn’t miss anything on our trip.

We arrived at the Keith station and headed off to the park where the children, parents and staff all had a ball.  Lunch was provided for us at The Ugie House Hotel where the food was delicious and the staff very attentive.  Many thanks to them too.

We then headed back to the train station to head back to Dufftown.  We stopped to see the donkeys again, blew the horn some more and looked out for all the animals again.  We arrived back in Dufftown tired but very happy.

Thank you Viv and Nic for a fab day out.
