“The Duke asked if he could go in and they got inside the train and blew the steam whistle,” Chief Andy Carvill, their guide, said. “I told them about the Queen’s coach and they were pleased to hear that.”
The only problem was because the train was stopped on a bridge, there was no safe pathway back to land. But they made do anyways.
