On Tuesday 3rd September several members of our Rotary Club and their partners supported the Mayor’s Charity Steam Train trip pulled by the steam engine ‘Mayflower’.
The event was in aid of Thames Hospice and over 100 people had booked a seat. The train departed from Windsor Riverside station at 12.43pm for Waterloo with a three course luncheon being served in Pullman style carriages. At Waterloo there was a short stop with the main course and sweet being served on the homeward journey.
This was a very enjoyable experience which hopefully raised a lot of money for the hospice. The event also marked the end of the first season of operation of the steam train from Waterloo to Windsor.
