A Bank Holiday is a time to get out of Weston, or to be swamped by day trippers. Having a day left on my Rover, it was just a case of where I would end up today. Set out early enough to leave me a few options, with a quick run to Bristol on a Voyager which was quiet but seemed to be heavily reserved from Bristol onward. Decided to head for South Wales, and found myself practically the only passenger on a Cardiff-bound unit.
Alighted at Newport and found old friend 'Nunney Castle' in attendance hauling the 'Carmarthen Cavalier' railtour. Lots of spectators, and plenty of steam. Enjoyed the sunshine and photo opportunities.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
