Here is mini list my dream railway rolling stock for Coopers Junction. What do you think?!?!?
So pleased with myself, third 30+ mile cycle in a row! Did 36.38 miles, also making it the longest one of 2020 so far!

P.S. Sorry no photos of myself, you will have to make do photos these LNER photos, I took at Tallington level crossing.
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!

View from the very last northbound Highland Chieftain (LNER) service crossing the Forth Rail Bridge.
So 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!
