When we were very small, our parents used to regularly take us to Pagham in Sussex – staying in one of a set of old railway carriages that had been turned into holiday chalets. I clearly recall the bunk bed arrangment in one section – because the ceiling of the carriage was domed, the top bunk was a bit snug and was daunting at first. The rest of the accommodation has gone in a blur of mismatched memories. I do remember there was a verandah along the front – with steps up in the middle to the door of the carriage. I lso remember the windows had catches to allow you to slide the glass panels open – with the top section dropping open only a little way. We never had very hot summers in those days and yet I recall our bedroom feeling unbearably hot and stuffy at night. Probably because I was consigned to that top bunk!
