Passenger Train to Leiston1
We've all done it - get to the station praying that the train is late as usual and of course the day you want it to be late it's bang on time and you watch it disappear into the ether. Normally there's another one you can catch so it's not a total disaster....

Saturday saw the annual South East Bus Festival take place at the Kent Showground, Detling, and for the first time in 5 years I made it down there. Tim and I had always planned to go, but were given a real bonus when I was contacted on Friday by Ross Newman...

A Day Of Excellence
Ok, I said I'd combine my two trips to London into one post. Forget I said that, and to confuse you even more I'm going to do Friday's first! You'll understand why as you go along. It made a pleasant change to get the train up to London thanks to a decent d...
