Last month Telford Steam Railway was pleased to hear it had been recognised as a great place for a date by eHarmony.
Obviously we knew about our appeal to families and people of "a certain age" so we had to have a think about how we could appeal to people on a first date (other than being hot and steamy or keeping all our connecting rods well oiled!).
Being on one of our steam trains can take you back to a more romantic time, it gives you time together to talk without the pressures of everyday lives (leave your technology at home!), and you can have a ride on our steam tram (which can be very humourous at times!). Once you have finished you can have a meal or drink in the cafe and a wander around the model railway.
The whole experience takes about 2 hours which would be around the perfect length for a date (In our opinion anyway!), and if you want more time you can just get on the next train and carry on talking!
So thanks must go to eHarnmony for pointing out Telford Steam Railway to a whole new demographic!
Note: It has taken this long to get the news out due to the authors inability to chain together enough words, without too many railway innuendo's, to make a coherent article.
