I spent a short holiday in England after Christmas, I flew to and from Gatwick on December 26 and 31. December 27 I went to Bristol and Bath, then attended the Winter Steam Gala on the West Somerset Railway heritage line December 28-29. December 30 was spent as a cozy day on the Bluebell Railway south of London.
