I’ve always loved trains and the idea of long distance rail travel has been in my mind forever. In recent years there has been a spate of TV programs about train travel, most recently featuring the former politician Michael Portillo. His current series Great British Train Journeys, is okay, he dashes around the country and his parrot bright choices of jacket and trousers make up for the fact that he is visiting familiar places. But, it’s his continental rail journeys following Bradshaw’s travel guide that really have me paying attention. So I’m hooked and this is what I got from my Christmas list.
It may not be this year, but I’m optimistic for the future!
