I am going miss seeing the Class 365s trains in Scotland. Since Scotrail is replacing, them all with the new Hitachi Class385 trains, in the next number of weeks.
Still, got many photos to add to this map, but very pleased with my process so far…
Also, done a page, that breaks the National Cycle Network, down into routes.
Glasgow Central railway station is the busiest in Scotland. But it happens to be, the one I use the least! Mainly due to fast, you can’t get many direct train to it from Peterborough any more. Like you could under the GNER days! Which is one, of the main reasons, I started mainly driving to/from Scotland and stopped using the train!
LNER, is doing a way better job than both National Express East Coast and Virgin Trains East Coast, ever did! But, I still would rate GNER has the best railway franchise the UK ever had!

I know that most people will not think the same… But I, for one think that Stirling railway station, looks much better, since electrification. It makes it feel, more like a main railway station. Which of course it is, since you can get trains to Aberdeen, Alloa, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and even London!
But it’s going to take me a while getting use to, using a Class 365 running to/from Stirling. Since I’am so use to seeing, them run between London King’s Cross and Peterborough, in the past.
I also for one, think that ScotRail are doing a great job! So nice to see, some of the work, they have and Network Rail, have been doing start, to pay off!

That turned out to be a great day out in Ayr, in Scotland! Sure I’ve been before at some point, but I would like to say it was well over 20 years ago. I really do need to get back again in the summer!

I can now tick, Ayr railway station off my list! Which is my first new railway station of 2019! The first, of many, I am sure! Hoping to add at least 50 more in 2019!

Could not think of a better way to start 2019! That was to walk up my first named summit of the year. Neil and myself walked up Ben A’an, which has a elevation of 454 metres. The summit gives you some great views of the Trossachs.
