Platform 5, Crewe

Saturday 8th January 2022, 11.45am (day 3,789)

Railway stations often give good photo — particularly when they are massive, Victorian palaces of rail, like Crewe, which is one of the biggest provincial stations in the country. If I didn’t live on the other side of Manchester you’d almost certainly have seen this place before, as everyone changes trains here at some point. As it is, this is the place’s debut on the blog. I like the red lights reflected in the wet platform and the misty haze beyond (in fact it’s raining heavily here, as it was everywhere in north-west England, yesterday morning).

Nothing moving

Tuesday 15th September 2020, 9.15am (day 3,309)

Stop signal, 15/9/20

I did try to go into Manchester today.  The train got as far as Rochdale, where all services terminated thanks to a ‘points failure’. As I didn’t really care one way or the other, after a while of non-movement, I turned around and went back to complete my day’s work at home.  It is a sign of my recent equanimity that it didn’t bother me.  At least I got the chance for a photo.  It doesn’t really look like anything has moved here in years, so it seems appropriate.

Red lights

Red lights at HB station, 18/2/19

One of those shots where I took it — as one of several attempts to capture the nice morning light at Hebden Bridge station this morning — then thought no more about it. Only when it got uploaded onto the laptop did I notice the effect on this person’s head. Do they have bright pink hair? No, but there is a second red signal light on that side of the tracks.

Lee Wood Road

Lee Wood Road snow, 29/12/17

On the return home, a healthy dosage of the white stuff. This being a maritime British winter, not one of these more robust continental versions, by tonight it had all gone.
