For anyone who works in and around the railway industry today’s been a really shitty day. A train has hit a landslide near Stonehaven in Scotland and three people, two members of rail staff and a passenger have been killed. This is the first time a passenger has been killed in a rail accident since the Grayrigg accident in February 2007. Today, that fantastic safety record failed. I’m not going to speculate on what happened. Having attended a few of these tragic accidents in the past I have my own views, but I’ll wait until the official report comes out. Instead, I’m going to express my feelings of sadness and condolences to all those involved.

On to the picture of the day. I’ve been at a quandary over what to pick, but a browse through my website made me pick this picture.

I’ve a favour to ask…
If you enjoy reading this blog, please click on an advert or two. You don’t have to buy anything you don’t want to of course (although if you did find something that tickled your fancy would be fab!), but the revenue from them helps to cover some of the cost of maintaining this site – and right now (because of Covid), us locked-down freelances need all the help that we can get…

Thank you!
