Here's a collection of photos taken on
my trip to the UK in April, 2004. I began at Heathrow Airport, where I
picked up a Healthrow Express to Paddington, and from there went on
Virgin Rail to Lime Street, Liverpool, traveling first class on a rail
pass. On a car trip up to the Lake District I was able to spend some
time in Carnforth and at the Ravenglass Railway.I then checked out the Southport scene
going over to Wigan for a trip down to spend a few
days in Bridgend in Wales. My time there included a visit to the Vale
of Glamogan steam line, to beautiful Tenby and a couple of days
around Cardiff. From there it was up to Hereford and Oxford and back
London. Though a lot of wrinkles had not entirely been worked out of
the privatized system, it was much more customer friendly and efficient
than on previous trips and, of course, much fun for the photographer.
For photographers looking at the photos, all images are from a very
small Olympus 560 point and shoot digital camera.
