SNAPSHOT! Carlisle Walkabout.

Right, arrival at Carlisle has been achieved. So after a few photos on the station for my stock photography sideline it’s off into the city for coffee and food. Right, an alteration to plans. I believe there’s a Carnival parade on in Maryport today so I’m heading out there, it’s about forty five minutes by train down the coast. It

All of this is on the Northern Rail Lakes DayRanger, recommended if you want […]

Arrival there was a little delayed so the trot across Glasgow Central was a little brisker than intended. No problem we still made the Wemyss Bay train comfortably. Wemyss Bay station is a glorious thing from the heyday of the River Clyde steamers […]
