Hello, I love to travel and explore, both where I live and all over the world. Visit my blog at www.beatchtravelwine.com for lots of fun and interesting travel stories.
How much romance can you have on a train?
Valentine's Day 2020 will be one that I will remember for a long time. My husband and I were lucky enough to travel on the inaugural "Love Train" or as it more commonly known – The Mary Valley Rattler.
Everyone was excited, so when the call "All aboard" came, we boarded our carriage. We were in carriage 720, which has been lovingly restored and maintained. There were even fairly lights which added to the romantic atmosphere.
The inside of the train was lovingly restored and cared for
Along the way the friendly staff delivered a lovely box of scrumptious nibbles, including the most delicious lemon flavoured cheese, as well as bread, cured meats and grapes. The drinks cart made numerous rounds and the champagne was certainly flowing.
It was a chance for some more delicious canapes, another drink and a great photo opportunity with my valentine.

Once again, it was "All aboard" for our trip back to Gympie station. The sun was setting as we left the Amamoor station and the trip home was so relaxing and a lovely way to end this wonderful Valentine's Day.
A beautiful sunset added to the romance
At the station there was a band, more food and drinks and a lot of fun was had by all who stayed on and danced into the night.
Not for these lovebirds though, we said farewell to our new friends and had a lovely drive home chatting all about our "Love Train" ride and wondering how on earth we will beat that next Valentine's Day.
