Silly me, they are here's not there's. My word, this little station is really plunged deep into shadow once the sun swings around the sky, isn't it? I like that little round window on the side of the building, and am amazed at the size of that chimney.

MInd you, I was just thinking how cold it must be in winter in that deep dark shade, so I suppose they used to have a roaring fire in the waiting room in Victorian times?

Thanks so much for the links, Peter, I must post a photo I have of Flitwick station, which is on the Bedpan line. I took it when i realized I would be leaving my home town for good. I hadn't posted it before now as the windows are boarded up in my photo and I was hoping that it was looking happier now, but it would be good as a reference anyway, I guess.

I must hit the sack now, nearly 2 am. Lovely to hear from you again though, and thanks again for the links, great stuff!

cheers, sue

This photo was taken around midday on a beautiful November day and still the sun is casting large shadows.

Regards, Peter

Really black shadows! I thought it must be tucked into a sharp valley or something, but by the look of the map, this is not so.

I've just reminded myself to look for the picture of Flitwick station - I knew there was something I was going to look for, and couldn't think what it was!

Very best wishes to you, peter,

Sue

In november the trees and grass so green and it seems to me warm in the air!Wonderful autumn on the banks of the Severn!

Hi Diggory

We can still have some lovely days in November, but we normally suffer with a cold frosty night!

But nothing like the cold in Petersberg!

All the best Peter

Peter in Sankt Peterburg the weather is not so cold as the humidity everywhere!The town was constructed on the marshes!

Hi Diggory

As the city was constructed on the marshes are there many mosquitos?

All the best Peter

Hi Peter!Many mosquitos but not so many as in the Low Volga region!:(
