The Orient Express arrives at Abbotsford care home

Thursday, 9 June 2016

Hoping to spark conversation on trains and kindle clients memories of happy journeys it was decided to build a steam train out of garden spares and left overs. May be to celebrate the much heralded return of the flying Scotsman; murder on the Orient express; generally to let imaginations run riot amongst the clients. Above all for a bit of fun!

The gardener whistled into action with an upturned bed, a black compost bin for the boiler and the green bin for the cabin. Engine drivers; two rabbits and a teddy bear! Passengers included a famous Walt Disney skunk, chipmunk, exasperated cat and the gardener!

The oriental express coaches were four luxury green garden chairs. You can work out what the murder weapon was? Poirot is on the case.
