Trip last month to the UK was supposed to include time for a day of trainspotting, but the
weather didn't cooperate on the appointed day.  Got a few shots between rain showers,
but nothing to celebrate.  That and I don't know much about the history behind these lines.

PILGRAMIGE to Home Park in Plymouth

When travel plans were made it looked like the Plymouth Argyle FC were to remain in Div 1,
however, the team fell apart at the end of the season, and the Black Cats laid an egg on their
last match which secured relegation for the Pilgrims into Div 2.  Nonetheless, i had to make a
Pilgramige to Home Park to purchase new gear to support the lads in green next season.

This club will rip your guts out, yet the loyal following will continue .....

Someone will no doubt correct me, but is it possible that the railway offices are for the old London and South Western Railway, which was very much the minor party in Plymouth when compared to the Great Western Railway?

Pix of Southwestern Rail offices is a real catch. Thanks for posting it!
