You could have fooled me, Bill
Bill Phillips: Well it isn't far away from the sea so it might have been a boat train

Workmanlike shot of this transportation vehicle. In the land of Brexit, this is the future of luxury transport.

Luxury - brass is polished
Standard - the passengers polish the brass
Bill Phillips: You have just about summed up the class system in this country Louis
Very good shot, Bill. His concentration is palpable.
Bill Phillips: Pleased you like this Mary
Very good shot Bill, nicely enhanced as well.
Bill Phillips: A gentle boost to the red and yellow Brian

Well, could it be a boat train? In the days of liners coming onto Southampton, boat trains were a common sight. The spectacle glasses up high are unusual. Did the S&D have very tall drivers?
Bill Phillips: Well you could get off in Minehead and go for a trip in a boat

Lovely portrait. I am now going to look for the boat...
Bill Phillips: You would have to walk about 100 yards from the station to see one

Fine composition, Bill
