One thing I not so secretly enjoy, that Eric loves are the driver view train journeys of numerous long distance trips. Tonight, I was so enjoying the journey from Brussels to St Pancras that I got him to leave it on when he went upstairs to his room. There is a lot more on the reasons for that on the other blog, for those who know about it, lol.
But thinking things through, wouldnt it be fun for someone more into lines sadly no longer with us, wouldnt it be interesting if it was possibly to make a virtual video of some of the more scenic lines that are no longer with us? I mean, seriously, if someone offered me a video of a journey of the Princetown branch, I’d probably bite their hand off! As for the Shropshire and Montgomery line, or the Bishops Castle one, name your price, seriously! But fine, given the last 2 closed in the 1930’s, not going to happen!
The best I can do, is next week, see the site now of Fenay Bridge and Lepton station, which closed to passengers in 1930, and is now known as Station Court, yes, a housing area. Looking forward to it, but a virtual journey on the Kirkburton branch, wouldnt that be fascinating?
Yes, I know, no health issues, mainly because I will know a lot more about future plans for me after tomorrow, when I have the end of treatment meeting, so keep your eyes open for that information.
OK, video time. Huge hint in the title of the blog, lol. This is the Glen Campbell version, though there are numerous famous ones to choose from
