123/366 Monday – Trains

Or lack of them, and no this is is not a commuter thing. The thing is, I like trains. I like watching trains. I like knowing about the signalling infrastructure. I’d love to have a decent model layout. I don’t think I have the skills to build one. Mainly because I have never really tried.

There is a parallel here, blogging. I didn’t know I could do this, write something every day. I’ve been driven in a good way to do this. Anyhow this is a piece about real trains, not models, The frustration is not living near an active rail line. Before moving to Gosport, we lived quite near the East Coast Main Line, now that is a busy line, but mostly passenger traffic (or at least it was, wonder what it is like now). Passenger trains are fine, and I love watching the intercity trains speed by or a slightly slower local units.

What I would like is to live near a busy freight line, with multiple types of freight runs. I could probably get some of that if I went up to Eastleigh. That appear to have a bit of a freight yard, looking at Google, it looks like yard used to be quite a bit bigger. Pity about that. I don’t like seeing any shrinkage of the rail network.

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.
