First visit railway station visit of 2021

First time visiting a railway station in 2021. Only to meet a friend off a train (hello Mark T), which happened to be the Class 91 – 91111 For The Fallen. Going on my first train trip of 2021, on Bank Holiday Monday! Which I am so looking forward too.

Meeting Matt at the railway station

Happy days! Matt is here, been looking forward to this for so long! We had been hoping to meet up in May…. But all that had to change, when the world went very, very mad! So it’s great getting to do more normal things again and meet up with friends!

So here are some photos of myself, waiting at Grantham railway station for him 🙂

Let’s Go Round Again | The LNER HST Farewell Tour

So glad, that I went to Grantham railway station on Saturday the 21st of December 2019. To see the LNER HSTs, branded as ‘Let’s Go Round Again’. A 2+7 set was fully repainted into the original InterCity125 livery and the powercars (43206 and 43312) were re-numbered to 253003 and 253029.

It’s the first time, in my life I’ve seen a HST set in it’s original livery. So glad, that myself and around 100 others went to Grantham railway station to get some photos!
