Quote from: icehaven on September 23, 2021, 09:06:40 AMJust call the fucking shopping centre Birmingham New Street too or have done with it.
Quote from: The Crumb on September 23, 2021, 10:16:16 AMGoing on a sleeper train for the first time in October, unreasonably excited for that.

Quote from: Gambrinus on September 23, 2021, 12:41:06 PMCaledonian sleeper? Expensive but worth it as a treat. I think they have showers in the rooms now. Book breakfast in the dining car, salmon and eggs while rattling through a frosty Scottish morning is one of life's great pleasures.
Quote from: The Crumb on September 23, 2021, 02:33:25 PMIt's the GWR to Penzance. From what I gather it's a bacon roll and coffee in the morning while I take in the Cornish Riviera. The Caledonian version definitely appeals at some point though, especially with that cozy picture you've painted. Wasn't too bad cost wise, £60 pp one way for a twin berth with breakfast.
Quote from: bgmnts on September 23, 2021, 08:08:27 PMGoing through New Street was one of those moments where I realised that other English cities were absolutely huge, not just London. Other than St Pancras, New Street is the largest train station i've been in.
Quote from: Smeraldina Rima on September 23, 2021, 06:31:05 PMA few years ago I went to Aberystwyth and enjoyed the views from the Cambrian line more than the day out. Before the watery parts approaching the coast, the train stopped at Dovey Junction to wait for passengers from a connecting train and the conductor recommended everyone to get out and enjoy the view for ten minutes.
Quote from: Cuellar on September 23, 2021, 08:14:52 PMI've just done this! There and back on the sleeper. The bacon roll isn't bad, the cabins are very cosy. I bloody loved it. We got to Paddington a bit early so we could sit in the 'first class' lounge (just a room with free biscuits and water etc. that you're entitled to use as a Sleeper passenger) and then we were some of the first people on so dumped our bags in the berth then got prime seats in the 'bar' carriage. 3 big cans of Carlsberg for a tenner, not bad. Although trying to take in the riviera in the morning we pulled in to St Erth or somewhere and the people getting off walked right past my window so saw me in my pants.
Quote from: purlieu on September 23, 2021, 08:17:32 PMOoh yes, a mate and I went camping in Snowdonia about 15 years ago, must have done the same journey. The bit where the track is right by the coastline and it almost looks like you're driving through the sea itself is fantastic.
