We have enjoyed several trips in the UK and Europe by train and they seemed too good to keep to ourselves. We hope they will be of interest, and perhaps inspire others to go on similar "adventures" by train. Do feel free to comment and ask questions! These are all real reports of our own experiences and none is sponsored by any of the businesses mentioned in them; all views are my own.
Three reports are now in hand of trips recently taken, to Newcastle upon Tyne, Beamish and Carlisle, to Scarborough (in winter!), and to Ely, and two new trips are now being planned, to Cambridge (again) for work and to Bristol and Bath for leisure. This should keep us going for a little while. The photographs of Newcastle are available on my Flickr pages for those who want to see them.
