That’s me just turned 40!

WOW! That’s me, just turned 40! Was great spending the day in Cyrus with my Mum, Dad and older brother Douglas! Was only missing my younger brother Craig. But got to see him and his wife, before flying out!

LNER Class 43 at Stirling railway station

LNER Class 43 at Stirling railway station, which also happened to be my ride between Edinburgh Haymarket and Stirling.

Also very sad, this could well be my very last trip on LNER Class 43 in Scotland. Since from the 9th December, the London King’s Cross – Inverness LNER route, will change over to the Azuma service (Class 800).

Loving the fully-accessible footbridge at Stirling railway station

Loving the refurbished bridge and new lift at Stirling railway station, which provides better access to platforms nine and 10. Network Rail have done a great job!

LNER Class 800 Azuma 800106 at Edinburgh Waverley

LNER Class 800 Azuma 800106 at Edinburgh Waverley, which also happened to be my ride between Peterborough to Edinburgh Waverley, which went via Newcastle and Carlisle. Which is, the first first time, I’ve ever done that route! About 99.9% of the time, they go straight up the ECML.

Also it was my longest journey, I’ve done on one of them! Got to say, I love the extra leg room! Also, I for one, do love the seats!
