687 – Trainspotting

One of the books I am reading at the moment is Platform Souls by Nicholas Whittaker. The book describes his life, the part I’m reading at present, as a kid. Some of the antics he got up to were, to be honest outrageous. I had no idea of the depths of devotion that kids had towards spotting trains.

These days, to see a steam train in action is a novelty and if I want to see one I have to travel to somewhere like the Watercress Line which really isn’t too far away, but sufficiently awkward that it isn’t something that I do very often – in fact, at the moment it’s once a year. This is a part of my radio club activities.

What I would really like is easy access to a railway line that that has plenty of train movements, and it looks like Eastleigh might be good. Now, it’s really further away, 20 miles, than I would really like to drive, but it is less than half as far aways as Alton, and because Eastleigh is a mainline station, the selection of train types is bound to be greater than a heritage line, acknowledging the absence of steam.

So, what this is leading up to, is my inclination to say that I may go and spend a little time at Eastleigh, just to watch trains. I’ll think about it and let you know what happens.

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.
