Train Stations

I had some great experiences traveling around England by train recently, like when I was on a train from Plymouth to London Paddington.  It offered tea, sandwiches and snacks about every twenty minutes via trolley.  Many other items were free such as bottles of water, bags of peanuts and shortbread, which I really liked.

When there was a wait between trains I either went inside at larger stations (Plymouth) or walked around outside looking for interesting views.  The train ride to St Ives was beautiful and I managed to get a good seat so I could take some pictures.  The areas surrounding many of the stations were also lovely, especially at places outside of cities.

I didn’t expect to see these scenes by one of the stations…
