The 8.45 is running late

Abandoned track in rural Buckinghamshire, reminds me of a story remembered from childhood.

Wouldn't you just love to follow this and see where it goes, John! I love the stories this track longs to tell.

All rather sad but if this is the old Oxford-Cambridge line it'll soon be alive again

a bit too late... will he ever come smile
As a railway enthusiast this is what I don't like to see but if the track is still there then there is hope. Nicely found John.
A lovely image John with fantastic composition. It is a picture with a story to tell, wonderful.
The train will be late for a long time! Nicely seen and done!
have a nice day.
I hope they keep it clear enough to be able to go on nice walks.smile
What was the BR advert...we're getting there??
