Young sleuths on the right track at station
CHILDREN of all ages put their best detective skills to the test when they took part in a railway-themed treasure hunt during the Bank Holiday weekend.
Scores of families attended Swindon and Cricklade Railway’s two-day event, on Sunday and Monday, which saw 30 brightly coloured trains at its venue, in Tadpole Lane and the Hayes Knoll station.
Organiser Adrian Brodie said a selection of prizes will be awarded to children who took part.
One prize is the chance to attend the venue’s special Santa event at Christmas.
“It’s a very good family day out,” said Mr Brodie. “The adults probably enjoy the day more than the children.”
Louise Fraser, 30, of Wesley Street, brought her two-year-old daughter Isabelle to the event.
“It’s a good idea. It’s a little bit more interactive than just learning about trains,” she said.
Sharon Moon, of Wroughton, brought her seven-year-old son Sam to the hunt.
“It’s a brilliant idea, Sam loves trains and it makes it a bit more interesting for him,” she said.
