The Impossible Journey

Seen recently, this beautiful shiny train coach is bound for Ilfracombe….

Really? This was Ilfracombe station as it was being torn down in 1972:

…it only survives in the memory

  1. Imagination always gives us a free ticket to travel whenever we want.

  2. Here you are, I thought you were quiet and put it down to you having a rest. I’ve got lots to catch up with here!

  3. wow what contrast and the last photo has a mysterious vibe that kept me looking – also love how the inside of the door has a bright green – cool shot

  4. What a shame, Sue! Is there a modern station there now? 😦

  5. I’ve just had to re-follow you. This has happened several times recently, I lost Madhu as well 😦
    I hope all’s good with you Sue and sorry I haven’t been over xx

  6. No doubt the sign was pure nostalgia. Most stations around here are now converted into domestic dwellings. Beeching has a lot to answer for.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. North Devon has terrible communication links which is why housing is cheaper there than south Devon. Same goes in Shropshire and rural Wales. No trains, one or two buses a day if you are lucky. And then the government want us to stop using our cars.

  8. Train tracks, stations and trains disappearing world wide Sue. Over here and NZ many of the tracks are now being converted to walking, biking and horse riding tracks.
