Join me on the train travelling smoothly and comfortably between Amsterdam and Brussels
Join me as we take a Warp Factor 6 train ride (fun with sound effects in Adobe Audition). Rest assured, however, no British train will ever go that fast – not with Boris Johnson driving. Thinks…..didn’t we invent trains?
Please join me at the vibrant Amsterdam Central Station. Listen to the announcements and people and trains coming and going.
Please see last post
Doesn’t everyone want a mobile shed? This shed is high above the slipway (next post) at MacDuff Harbour and it is where the chap who controls the winches stands when the pull a boat up the slipway.

Where I have spent most of my life!!!
Until Dr Beeching came along, Banff was connected to the rest of the United Kingdom by a railway line. The railway line to Banff finally closed in 1968. A pity. Given the general state of the roads in the UK (overcrowded and often in disrepair) and the need for us to reach climate targets, perhaps greater use of modern railway trains might have helped us in the longer term. But then, UK governments (especially the so-called Government we have in place now), can’t seem to plan beyond the end of the next week, let alone a year or more’s time. Long term planning? Forget it!!!
Where there were once railway tracks, there are now walking/jogging paths. Every cloud has a silver lining…
We’ve now left Holland and we’re on the move…….but where to? A new house waits for us somewhere. All will be revealed…
Right hotel room, wrong lens! A great view of London City Airport from my hotel room but I didn’t bring my long lens with me on this trip.
Please click on the link below, close your eyes and join me in the main lobby in Central Station Amsterdam (a natural echo chamber). Towards the end you’ll here a station announcement but the natural echo in the main lobby makes it hard to hear what is being announced.

For millions of people in London, this is the daily slog. Never a pleasant journey.
I’m sure that the graffiti artist never realised his ‘artwork’ would be paraded through Amsterdam Central Station at rush hour…….oops…
There’s something appealing about graceful curves…
