It was really great seeing Matt again! It’s always nice seeing friends that are into the same “fun things”, that you are! Sure you get, what I mean!
Here is Matt and myself waiting for his train back to London!
Here are some photos, of the fun stuff we got up to! 🙂
Remember you only live once! So have fun, when you can!!
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 🙂
P.S. Can you also guess, what else I was wearing?!?!? Comment below!!!
Happy first birthday to LNER’s Azuma trains, which celebrate a full year, since being launched into passenger service.

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!

While waiting for the HST at Grantham railway station, I also get to see the Hull Trains Class 802 ‘Paragon’ for the very first time!

Sad to know, that in the next number of weeks, all of LNER’s HSTs will be coming off the ECML. Really going to miss, seeing and of course hearing the Class 43’s, powering up and down the line.
