Happy Couple Engaged On The Watercress Line


On Sunday, 6th September, a family group were enjoying a trip on the re-opened Watercress Line from Alton station, organised by their father John Eddleston who volunteers on the railway. Just a normal day out you might think, but on the journey daughter Clara’s boyfriend Dan dropped to one knee in their first class compartment and proposed to her. Clara was delighted to accept and the family group returned to Alton in high spirits.
As they alighted from the train the news of the event came out and a member of our station staff was able to capture a photo of the happy couple.
Congratulations Clara and Dan, everyone at the Watercress Line send their best wishes for a happy married life!
