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.

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!

Since I’ve been to Wolverton railway station before, I’ve given it a double tick! Last time, it was at night and it was raining! So did not get many photos! So made up for it, this time!

During my drive back from Scotland, I called into Penrith railway station, to have a wee look around… Of course, I can’t add this railway station to my list… since I’ve not travelled to/from it… yet…

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!
