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 just updated my heritage railways map. It should, now just about include photos of all the heritage railway lines that I’ve visited.

Just added the following to the map…

  • Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway.
  • Mid Norfolk Railway.
  • North Norfolk Railway.
  • North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
  • Strathspey Railway.

Just started, make a photo map, of all (once I’ve finished it) the Heritage railways, that I’ve visited in the UK.

So far, I’ve only added the following to the map…

  • Bluebell Railway.
  • Great Central Railway.
  • Severn Valley Railway.
  • Swanage Railway.

I will add, more very soon!

Just updated the National Cycle Network sub section of my website.

I had to re-uploaded every single photo. After flickr changed the rules on how many photos, you could host with them! I had over 6,000 photos, hosted with them. Now the max you can have is 1,000 photos. If you want to have more, you have to pay! Like I am doing to do that! So I’ve moved all the photos back over to my own web space!

So, at least I have full control over all my own photos again!

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.

That’s us just done another part of the Grand Union Canal. This time, we walked from Stoke Bruerne to Northampton. A distance of 9.79 miles. So only around 4 to 5 more days and I can say, I’ve walked all the way from London to Birmingham.

The route we took can be found over at www.strava.com/activities/2076296550

Here are some photos from day 10 of our Grand Union Canal walk.
