The couple in seats 31 & 33* -
We have enjoyed several trips in the UK and Europe by train and they seemed too good to keep to myself. 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. -
* Our favourite seats on Virgin East Coast electric trains
Not really a proper adventure because we started and ended by car, but last week we visited the Nene Valley Railway and travelled on a steam-heated train: with British Railways standard MkI coaches and a standard Class 2 locomotive built the year I was born, it was a real step back in time - and with real ale on board, too. Steam all over the place! My pictures are at https://www.flickr.com/photos/frmark/ for those who would like to see them.
