These long train journeys

This picture was taken at the local DIY store, it is of course one of their model train. They are going to get rid of it soon, if it has not been done already (the photo dates back to early May) to give more space to all the boring stuff a DIY has. I go there for the train model, most of the time anyway. So this would be a sad loss. I took some pictures of the display because I wanted more memories of it. And I uploaded it on this post because I have been thinking a lot about train travels.

I travel daily by train, however I have not been on a long train journey since Paris. And before that it was in March 2013 when I went to Manchester. And I miss these long train journeys. They are exhausting, but they are often an adventure in themselves and sometimes they are the best part of the trip. Going somewhere can be just as interesting as being somewhere. This is the case for train journeys, more so I think than any other means of transport. As my readers may know, I will take holidays in Devon at some point. I don't know if I will love it or not, but I am already looking forward to the time spent in train. This is one aspect of England I love: their train network, which allows us to see so many parts of the country. I can barely wait.

Oh this is wonderful. I wish we still had train service. You are lucky.

Yes, this is one thing I feel very lucky about here.
