The former East Linton station, closed 4th May 1964, seen from the delayed ex-14.00 service from Edinburgh Waverley to London King's Cross making an unscheduled stop due to heavy snow - the Beast from the East - on 28th February 2018. The train left Edinburgh nearly an hour late and at the time it should have been back at King's Cross was still sitting in Alnmouth station. The train was then terminated at Newcastle, everyone had to change to another train and it was standing room only all the way to York. We eventually arrived in London at 01.17 on 1st March but free taxis were laid on to get people home and the taxi marshalls did an excellent job cyphoning passengers into cabs going in the same direction as their homes. The roads were treacherous and it took nearly an hour just to get to my home in north London where I arrived just after 2 a.m.; one gentleman wanted to go all the way to Chingford, goodness knows what time he got home.
