A Plymouth couple who both have their 90th birthdays this year were able to celebrate with a trip on the Orient Express (link below.)
http://thisisplymouth.co.uk/displayNode.jsp?nodeId=133464&command=displayContent&sourceNode=133158&contentPK=20472997&folderPk=78031&pNodeId=133174

George and Marjorie Reeve, from Peverell, were treated to the once-in-a lifetime trip by their daughter Jean and her husband, and their son Graham.

Marjorie will celebrate her 90th birthday on May 24 and George will celebrate his on September 28.

They were originally meant to go on holiday to Eastbourne this year, but ended up cancelling their trip.

So their children and their spouses came up with the idea of a day trip from Plymouth to Taunton on the Orient Express British Pullman on April 12.

Isn't that nice.

They also had the opportunity to view rainy Devon by rail; http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l50/liamy_2006/swr/djc7.jpg
