  2. I wouldn’t recommend lingering but Godalming Station is a lovely Victorian job and the food from the caff is really lush, pretty much the only thing I miss about not commuting these days.

    Selby used to be a good one to stop at when I was doing a weekly trip to Hull for work about a decade ago, it had a proper old school 1970s style cafe, all Formica, blue aprons and two quid cheese toasties. I hope it still exists in the same form but suspect it'll be some kind of wretched franchise now, frothy coffee and paninis.

    Settle has a rather lovely waiting room - it has, or had, a real coal fire, and they were handing out pies (i imagine i had apple, or perhaps blackberry...).

    arriving in a wintery Settle, from a wintery Penrith, this was rather wonderful...

    Throw in a steam train and GWR coaching stock and it's getting dangerously close to orgasm territory!

    Can you still linger at stations without being arrested for vagrancy nowadays?

    A380 How do I change this 'custom title' thing then?

    Carnforth. But only in the hope you could help Celia Johnson get something out of her eye.

    Was in Matlock today so was rude not to visit Cromford.

    Fans of the Britpop era will probably recognise it from an Oasis single cover, when music artwork was actually took notice of.

    You can actually rent out the cottage on the disused platform and stay in it. I only saw a single carriage train going up and down.
