119/366 Windows & Trains

This window is part of the way along the Gosport High Street. When I go out tomorrow, I’ll have to make a note as to which building it is a part of. That’s only partially important. For me, it’s thinking about who has sat in that window since the building was built. The window looks really old and a bit worn. I can imagine people from a while ago sitting there, watching people go past, what was street life like a hundred years ago (it looks that old and older), horse & carts, perhaps early cars? Ladies in their finery, men drunk falling about and fighting. Waiting to be press ganged?

Why Trains? It suddenly hit me today when I opened the latest edition of the Railway Correspondence and Travel Society’s monthly magazine, The Railway Observer, that I hadn’t written anything about my interest in railIways. I’ve always loved trains. I don’t know what it is about them. I love watching them, I always loved watching the mechanics of the semaphore signalling system. And yes, I definitively aspire to having a model railway layout – with digital control of course.

Being a member of the RCTS gives me access to an unparalleled (for amateurs) level of information. That’ll do me for the time being.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
