West Runton: The permanent way looks anything but permanent as 170203 pushes aside blooms and shrubbery to reach West Runton station on 13th July 2019. The train is heading west to Sheringham at a time when it should have been heading east to Cromer.

Framlingham: Framlingham station, viewed across the old forecourt, in July 2019. The station closed to passengers in 1952 but the pick-up goods continued until 1963, latterly diesel hauled by BTH Type 1s or Brush Type 2s. After a period when it was very run down the station building has been refurbished and extended in recent years to increase the retail space of the business that occupies it. The building on the left is still a busy pub and features in old pictures of the station.

Woodford Halse: Many years ago, a railway worker on the old S&MJR line rested his shovel in the crook of a tree. In July 2018 it was still there. You might not notice this if you were not on a Railway Ramblers walk.

Edinburgh Park: A westbound service approaches Edinburgh Park on 22 July 2019 with the kenspeckle bulk of Arthur's Seat in the background. Surrounded by an industrial estate, a retail park, a business park and absolutely no houses Edinburgh Park is a station you travel to, not from. Yes, I said kenspeckle. Shoot me now before I say 'anent' or 'clanjamfrie' and start writing letters to The Scotsman.

Uppsala Östra: Uppsala Central, on the left, has 8 platforms whilst Uppsala Östra, on the right, has 2 platforms. When the station was redeveloped to become Resecentrum, Östra station was moved into the same location; it used to be west of Central. The name Östra (east) seems to refer to the direction to and from which trains travelled rather than the location of the station. The line used to run from Uppsala towards the east coast at Norrtälje. The shot shows a standard gauge double decker train and a narrow gauge (891mm) steam-hauled special wedding train with two brake vans at the front of 3rd Class coaches. The steam loco is Långshyttan from 1897 built at Motala Verskstad.
