Steaming to Mettupalayam
As it’s my birthday I’m going to treat myself to a trip on an uncomfortable, rattling and smokey steam train heading for Mettupalayam, and I’m going to imagine the gorgeous smell of steam and coal smoke…..ahhh it takes me back.
Unfortunately this steam engine was oil fired so the aroma is decidedly truck like.
‘She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes …..’
‘Wake me up and tell me when the whistle blows …….’
