With extended jaunts planned for next week, stayed very local today. Out on the 0830 Voyager to Bristol Temple Meads to watch the arrival of 6024 'King Edward I' on 'The Devonian' tour to Plymouth which could be seen steaming away at Barton Hill in the distance. Started out a very pleasant morning, but soon clouded over. This didn't stop the steam enthusiasts however, and there were large crowds in the usual spots at the London end of the station as the tour arrived with 67022 in charge.
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.
