Today, I had to use three trains to get from Paisley to Grantham. The first train took me from Paisley Gilmour Street to Glasgow Central. Then, I of course had to walk from Glasgow Central to Glasgow Queen Street.

I could have got the 5:15pm to Edinburgh Waverley, but it was way to busy. So I waited till the 5:30pm ScotRail service, which worked out better, since it was a Class 365, eight-carriage train.

Still can’t believe how much better the Glasgow–Edinburgh via Falkirk line, since the electrification project. Just hope, that next time, I use the line. I get to use one of the Class 385 trains!

Once in Edinburgh, it was time to wait for the 7:36pm service to Grantham. Got to say, that LNER is so better than Virgin Trains! Which is, one of the main reasons I stopped going by train!

Also Adam the train manager was so funny!! He was coming out with things like “the buffet car is located in coach H for hungry” and “If you are still standing and not a fan of Elton John head to coaches E and F”

It was a year ago today that Nick and myself climbed Ben Nevis, which is of course, the highest mountain in the British Isles! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level!! Still can’t believe that we both did it!!

I went for a mini walk wearing my 2XU P:1 Propel wetsuit, then somehow ended up in the River Clyde… the water is colder than it looks!
