I wrote here a while ago about my obsession with trains. I’m afraid this is about to become even more pronounced, as I am in the middle of making bookings for another train safari round Europe.
I have decided to give into the obsession instead of trying to fight it any more, so I’ve set up a new board on Pinterest for this: http://gb.pinterest.com/sheilamcperry/trains-and-trains-and-trains/ and a new additional blog which I will attempt to update as I travel to Finland and back this summer by rail and ferry: http://allmytrains.wordpress.com/. There may be posts about other journeys in the meantime in case anybody is interested. I’m hoping that by confining train stuff to these 2 outlets I can keep it off my writing blog for a while!
Some of my preparations for the trip involve booking lots of tickets and getting hold of new luggage, and some of them involve watching ‘The Bridge’ series, so there is a lot of work involved in this.
For the moment I am not writing about trains, for a change, but about London in the run-up to the Coronation in 1953. Things are progressing on schedule and I passed the 20,000 word mark this morning – that’s about a third of the way through I think.
