Weight and Stuff Report – 5 September 2015

Hmmmm, up a bit today.

After breakfast, I headed out to the station with a plan in mind, and it actually came off. I had only a short wait for the next train that would stop at Berwick upon Tweed[1]. I had a bit of a wander in the rather busy town[2], around some of the ramparts and then along to admire the bridges. I’d just about finished getting my bridge pictures, and was turning to head back up to the town in search of a wee bit of lunch when I heard an unmistakeable sound, so I turned around and got some more photos. Well, a railway bridge does look more interesting if there’s a train on it, doesn’t it? So here’s the lovely Royal Border Bridge with a southbound Virgin Trains East Coast InterCity 125.
