We thought we would get into the spirit of the season and do a 
pre-Olympics warmup event, and what could be warmer than sitting in a 
lovely old steam train drinking some of the finest ales available!

The Real Ale Train or RAT is an evening service on a restored steam 
powered railway line in Hampshire. The train has a couple of bar 
carriages and seating in proper old comfy train seats. It trundles up 
and down the line a couple of times stopping at stations between Alton 
and Alresford. On board there is food (curry & rice , sausage in a bun 
etc.) and beer, sometimes cider, and probably wine and soft drinks too. 
At the end of the evening it connects with the mainline train back 
towards London.


you need to book a ticket, price is £14 and you can book them here:


It does sell out months in advance, so don't hang about and do book your 
ticket today.
