Bridgnorth Cliff Railway, Bridgnorth, England

I was anticipating the journey from London to Paris. First of all, the departure point was St Pancras Station in London, which has been done up at (no doubt) great cost. The result is a veritable palace when you consider the standard of workmanship the original builders produced …

The Edinburgh Glasgow Train

It is said that the Edinburgh to Glasgow – and the Glasgow to Edinburgh - train-line is the busiest in Europe. I don’t know about that. If it’s true, it’s strange that it should be in one of the smaller countries in northern Europe and not in the …
