Misc. pictures from my visit to the U.K.
Author: mkancle

I recently visited the U.K. and wanted to share some of the railroad related pictures I took.  What follows is a mish mash of odds and ends that contains active railways, viaducts, abandoned lines, and stations! 
Sorry about not being able to provide more detail for the locations of some of the pictures.  
The first two are of the tracks leading into Paddington Station in London. I stayed at The Paddington Novotel and had a great view of everything for four nights.

From another recent posting on this forum I learned this was Ribblehead Viaduct! Very, very impressive.

I believe this is the Teviot Viaduct near Roxburgh, Scotland

An old sign in great condition and a clutch of LMS marked Cordeaux insulators. The reds signified power wires.

Looks like you had a great trip. As a resident in the uk, you've been to a few places that I've not been. A great view of Paddington approaches,  and the Tyne and Weir metro has some great stations. Tynemouth is a fabulous station. Chris uk.
