Cholsey & Wallingford Railway

29 June 2008

A busy scene at Wallingford station as City of Truro is readied for another round trip to Cholsey

The train is taken out of the station for complicated manoeuvres to get City of Truro on the other end

After our trip to Cholsey, we wait on the platform as trains on the mainline go by.

With a diesel having taken the carriages out of the way, City of Truro leaves the platform.

Guinness then brings the carriages back

And City of Truro returns ready to pull us back to Wallingford

After that we paid a visit to the Kennet & Avon Canal at Aldermaston Wharf

Henry watches as water pours in through a gate paddle into the lock with its scalloped edges

Below the lock is a lift bridge so there is lots of activity when there are boats about

A short stroll downstream brings us to Padworth lock

After an ice cream we return to the first lock before heading home
