Dear diary it is the letter T across at ABC Wednesday - my Time is limited now and blogging has become a luxury and as they say a guilty pleasure. My father is very poorly and life is a Turmoil at the moment, Last weekend we stole a few special moments to Trainspot here are a few of my pics It was a cold and damp day but even so this added to the atmosphere - and you could feel the adrenalin rush on the platform as the trains gathered steam and whistles were blown
Catch sight of the old Abbey in the background a fascinating old building I will take you there soon and show you around
It was dropping dusk as the train moved away - the train was pulling dining carriages - see my header - I quietly nipped inside when the train was stationary and the guard was looking elsewhere - to get a quick shot !!
Catch sight of the flag on the old railway building turrets as the train moved off
The pics were all taken on the Shrewsbury Railway Station on last Saturday afternoon about 4pm just as it was dropping dusk - why not join others across at ABC Wednesday to celebrate the letter T

  6. Wonderful shots of the train both inside and out.
    I'm so sorry that your Father is doing poorly and that the weather isn't helping the mood.
    Thinking of you.

  7. Sorry to hear the reason why you can't blog as much! Good to keep up your spirits! You caught the atmosphere around the train stations superbly! In my teenage time (in Holland) I made use of the train weekly.

  8. Atmospheric photos, love the carriage reflection. This is a good advert not to take any notice of the weather.
    Sorry to hear of your father's illness, these things do turn life upside down.

  10. Hi Jane, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

    1. Hi Chris.
      Yes, Jane does have a excellent blog, and a number of very close and caring followers. I notice you have 2,632 so called 'followers'. How anyone can read that number of blogs, even in a year is mind-boggling. 'Blog-collecting' is not a game some of us considerate people want to play, especially at sensitive times.

  11. Hello Jane.
    (Feel free to delete what I posted above. You see, I have feeling and I don't believe that the lady commenting above does.)

    I am very sorry to hear that your Dad is very poorly, especially as it's coming up to Christmas. I know how you you must feel and I want to know that my thoughts are with you and your family. Just take care.
    As you know I love steam trains and really enjoyed your pictures here today.
    Give blogging a break if you need to.
    I am. It does us good to have a rest every now and then.
    Best wishes for Christmas....Bernard x
