Looking forward to Highland Chieftain

 Class 43 at Grantham railway stationSo looking forward to last ever trip on a HST on the ECML. Getting the train from Grantham up to York (which I believe, will be a InterCity 225), then boarding the Highland Chieftain service, which will be operated by diesel-powered InterCity 125 High Speed Train for the very last time! Going all the way up to Inverness.

This will be my third time using the Highland Chieftain service. Really, really looking forward to it!

Once up in Inverness, hoping to do the Far North Line, for the very first time!

Class 91: 91119 LNER at Grantham railway station

At long last, I got a good photo of the Class 91 (#91119) in the ‘Swallow’ livery! Really going to miss these locomotives, when they all come off the ECML by the middle of next year.

London King’s Cross railway station ✅

Yes, I did tick off London King’s Cross railway station, a long time ago! Way back in 30th November 2002 in fact. But like more others, I always head straight to underground and head into the centre of London. But not this time, for once I walked the other way and went to end of the platforms to get some photos…
