"Tracks to the Trenches"

Sunday 14th September saw us head off in Mr Happy to Apedale in Stoke on Trent to Apedale Heritage Centre in Apedale Country Park where the Narrow Gauge Railway there were hosting a WW1 event.
Now I am self confessed Narrow Gauge geek, but this was much more than just trains which were,granted, superb. There were other WW1 transports as well as re-enactments by the WW1 Society. The group had built a trench network complete with a simulated gas attack and evacuation.
There was also a cavalry demonstration.
It was a great day out even if Milo the dog pretty much had  a nervous breakdown with the gunshots and explosions, and was only happy when we headed for the exit.
