Classes from Ashlade and Blythdale went on a fantastic journey to York. The classes were B12, A6 and A7.

We would like to say a big thank you to Nicola Buckley, Lisa Yemm, Gary Braddock, JJ Fletcher and Stephen O’doherty for the complementary train tickets and for making us feel very safe and comfortable on the train.  We all had an amazing day.

We started our journey at Newcastle central station and we met Gary Braddock from Transpennine. Gary took us over to the Transpennine train and showed us to our seats. We had a very comfortable journey to York. The train was very fast.

At York we met Lisa Yemm. Lisa had a surprise for us, it was a Trenspennine goody bag, it was like a party bag, but even better.

We then walked over to the railway museum. We sat on the real bullet train and looked under a steam engine. Bradley even spotted a Dr.Who Tardis on the model railway layout.


We then got the train back to Newcastle and we were able to stand next to the train for a photo.
