So I’ve been back 6 months and now I’m stuck in the normal 9-5 of a office job. Guess chances for adventure are clearly over… Or maybe not… Link to this post!Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
Ok it’s not actually an ode as in a song… Having spent the equivalent of a week living on Amtrak trains over the last two months, and having really rather enjoyed most of that week, I felt I should put a quick post together highlighting the best bits about travelling America by train and some […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
I have failed to put up a post Mexico’s national railway museum despite visiting it months ago. Well, now seems as good a time as any to right this great wrong so without further ado…. Link to this post!Continue Reading... No Comments.
This is something like the 12th Railway museum I have visited on this trip and this time I actually went quite a bit out of my way to get there, making my journey from San Francisco to Fresno via Sacramento, purely in order to visit California’s State Railroad Museum, which I hadn’t even known existed until […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
Ever wonder what a train museum might look like if you had an insane amount of money to spend on it? It’d probably be something along the lines of the SCMAGLEV and Railway Park, in Nagoya, Japan.

After posting lots of pictures of China’s beautiful scenery and architecture I felt I was neglecting something. Then I remembered it must be almost 3 weeks since I last put up pictures of a railway museum. Well I thought to myself – this must be corrected immediately, and so below you can find a link […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
