It looks like a toy, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It is only little!
...and train Friday Bill. What a lovely little machine!
Bill Phillips: A typical multiple unit you see here Richard. I confess I know very little about modern trains!

The station is the appeal for me here; I'm trying to imagine a steam loco there; at least there are no overhead wires to spoil the view here. I like the crowded platform.
Bill Phillips: It is quite an attractive station. I might start taking more railway pictures

I recognise this place, the starting point for a number of rail adventures with Mr A C Dufftown
Bill Phillips: It was the first time I have stood on the platform. It is a pleasing little station
Cheltenham Spa train station (ha ha) is a dump and not fit to represent the town. Tiff assures me that there are plans to make it look good.

The music is so typical of its age Bill.
Bill Phillips: I was at the Railway station Chad which has some nice ironwork.
i had the opportunity to travel in some crossrail trains in the year 2009 and i was rather impressed by their interiors, Bill.
Bill Phillips: They are not bad trains at all Ayush
The front sections of this type of unit were generally made at a factory in Shepshed for some years and before he moved to the job he now has our Chris was employed in the spray painting dept.finishing these off in the colours of the company they were going to, this could be one of his.
Bill Phillips: Wouldn't that be good!

You raise me up with this picture.
Bill Phillips: Well that's good to know Louis.
Its like watching paint dry.
Bill Phillips: None of the romance of steam but one day there will be people wanting to preserve these things!
I like your POV here...
Bill Phillips: Thanks Jacquelyn
Where does the steam come out?
