Where was I?
Author: Korigaoka1811

In 1985 I visited the UK from the US and this picture is a little memento of the trip.  I'm pretty sure I took this picture in London but can anyone tell me what station I was at?  I've forgotten!

Thanks.

J.

London Victoria, the Chatham side.

Thank you!  I was too busy being a first-time tourist and having fun exploring to take too many pictures, which seems odd in a way, but I hope to go back soon and see the UK from the perspective of 60-something instead of 20-something.

Currently in a nice hotel in Inverness doing exactly that.

Having spent 6 years in London working in the 1980's, I have come over to revisit some of the places that I had seen 
some 40 years earlier. Traveling on a Britrail pass for six weeks does have some great benefits.

While the places are pretty familiar, the the trains themselves are all different and the train service is very good.
Freight related scenery has nearly completely disappeared, but the passenger trains are now more colorful and more modern 
than ever before. Some services are fully booked and seat reservations are essential.

Off to Wick and Thurso this morning to get as far north as I can by train.
Enjoying the cold and rainy weather up here all the same, 
And to look forward to another beer in another pub.

Cheers, Graham.
