Was it really that long ago..?
the '70's are fine until one works out how long ago it was . . . ;)
I thought the 2nd photo didn't look that old, and the wiki page confirms it. It's amazing they still use steam locomotives. I'm looking forward to October, when in Amersfoort the 175 year jubileum of national rail transport will be celebrated with lots of old trains.
Yes, the photos are from the date of the ticket 1974.That sounds an interesting anniversary to be commemorating in October.
I'd have difficulty with the Welsh names.
Don't worry, you're not alone . . . :)
