Dads And Lads At The Severn Valley Railway


This week Cee wants to see tender moments. Here are some that caught my eye on a couple of visits to Shropshire’s Severn Valley Railway.

They make me wonder too: young dads sharing their passion for steam trains; little lads not quite big enough to be sure. Which is also touching.

And quite another take on the topic…


A case of sore feet and


a tender behind… (I know, it’s an old joke)

*tender = coal wagon

  1. Bravo. I enjoyed your photos for personal reasons; my father was a railroad engineer who handled coal, diesel and steam driven engines. Thanks for the trip down memory labe. Much appreciated Tish.

  2. Tish, these are lovely. If you don’t mind, I’d like to link this post to my WQW challenge about transportation this week. Your photos are adorable. 🙂
