Caledonian Sleeper back in August 2014

Here are some photos, I took of First Caledonian Sleeper, in Fort William back in August 2014. When it was still run by the First ScotRail franchise. Now the Caledonian Sleeper has been split into a new franchise, operated by Serco.

Gear or travel?

A number of days ago, I did a poll over on my facebook page, www.facebook.com/gordonval/ asking what you would like to see more of, on this blog!

Right now gear is winning with 89% and travel only has 11% of the vote!

So in the coming days and weeks… I will try posting even more gear photos! Of course, by gear, I mean myself wearing, Lycra, leathers and wetsuits!

Oh and don’t worry, I will still of course, be posting lots of travel adventures here! 🙂
