There’s something about a railway station in the evening for me. An ethereal layer that lurks just below the bustle and hustle of large numbers of people on the move. A quiet rhythm of something biding it’s time, waiting, watching.
The day has continued. I arrived in Buxton quite handily for the bus down to Bakewell.
