I of course, ticked off Edinburgh Waverley railway station a long, long time ago! But I’ve just been sorting out photos! While having a wee look, back at East Coast Trains, when they use to run the most trains on the ECML!

Here are some photos, I took of First Caledonian Sleeper, in Fort William back in August 2014. When it was still run by the First ScotRail franchise. Now the Caledonian Sleeper has been split into a new franchise, operated by Serco.

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.

I’ve started working on a National Cycle Network photo map. I’ve used the network so many times, over the years for cycling, walking and while doing the End to End cycle back in 2009.

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!
