  1. Totally loved the title, the quote & the capture… there’s something about this pic that makes you stop & think about ‘speeding time’ and what you’ve done & been doing with your life! invokes introspection… loved this pic!

    1. Cheers James I know just what you mean. I can remember going up and down to Wales as a kid (my dads family are there) on the British Rail Intercity 125.
      My daughter seems to be just as mesmerised but lucky to go further afield!
      Actually it kind of runs in the family. My Great Grandfather drove the Swansea to London Paddington express in the days of steam – I guess he was like a long haul pilot of his day!
