Men walking the right of way at the station. Or are they?
Actually they are spraying weed killer, but they have to walk the line to do it, right?
There are two stations in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England. Westgate is on one side of town. It is bigger, with more trains running through it, a ticket office, toilets and cafe.
This is Wakefield Kirkgate. It has no facilities at all.
But the trains ran on time and I got myself to Nottingham in ninety minutes. It only cost 7 pounds 40 pence, since my daughter Pix had purchased my ticket online months before, thus saving me 14 pounds!
I love travelling by train in England. It is the most civilised form of transport. Once settled on board I can sit back and enjoy the ride and the beautiful countryside. After half an hour or so, I eat my packed lunch and drink my bottled water. Happy.
