Yeah I thought it might be a bit pricey, but was hoping if you worked out the accommodation saved it might even out a little.
I love trains too, we caught the train to QLD when I was about 6 and we took the car, I thought it was fantastic. Sadly Countrylink doesn't seem to take cars anymore, which is such a shame because I always had in mind to take the car and CT on it in the future
My youngest (20mths) is starting to adore Thomas, he gets so excited when it comes on the TV, although he runs from the room which is quite funny. All he can say is Mum, Dad, Car and Toot Toot. Will have to keep that expanda foam in mind I think.
