Blunsdon: On 27th July 2019, 'Sir Herbert Walker' visited the Swindon and Cricklade Railway - cunningly disguised as a class 73 engine. Having misread the timetable, I missed this train - we had to settle for sausage and cider.

Inverurie: Unwontedly (but not unwantedly) this Inverness to Aberdeen service was formed by an HST rather than an overcrowded 158. The conductor blamed late running on the extra time needed to sort out the manual doors and she certainly was thorough. Pictured at Inverurie on 2 October 2019.

Weybourne: Weybourne station, seen from a Class 101 DMU arriving with the ex-13.00 North Norfolk Railway service from Sheringham to Holt, on 25th June 2019. The line here opened in 1887 but this station was not opened until 1st July 1901. It closed on 6th April 1964 when the BR passenger service to Melton Constable was cut back to Sheringham. BR's contractors began lifting the track with indecent haste but the MGNJR Association was able to save Weybourne station from demolition and began to restore it and re-laid track although it was not until 13th July 1975 that it was open to the public with the first section of the heritage line as far as Sheringham. Prior to that date, only MGNJR Association members were able to ride on the line.

Perth Holding Sidings: The results of a recent 'chainsaw massacre' have opened up this view of Perth from the west. This area was latterly the holding sidings and before that the down carriage shed and goods bypass.

Morecambe South Junction: Freightliner 66610 heads a short train of box wagons south on the WCML at Morecambe South Junction. This was running from Hardendale to Tunstead on 3rd October 2019 but the train usually loads to many more wagons than this.

Barry: Having last visited Barry in 1990, I didn't expect to find good facilities at the station. So this cafe and art display was a very pleasant surprise.
