    Just a few photos of our suburban train station

    Trains are easy to catch here, and easy to use, ..all Americans who have ever moved to the London area will tell you that the public transport is so easy to use, trains and buses etc..



    I live in the rural shires 20 miles outside of the city and can catch a train into the city , but since retiring I rarely use the trains now... but the last 2 days I have had reason to use them again...so just for fun, and for my friends on here I took pictures of our little suburban train station... from these photos you wouldn't believe that there are literally thousands of people before 9am heading into London on these trains would ya?

    Thank you. That looks great? Public transit is so important.

    Our bus service here is good I use it all the time. Rarely use my car.

    Unfortunately I have to drive to the station, not too far, but because we live out in the rurals public transport is adequate but not great, unlike the city...

    Lovely, even the train seats look comfortable!

    And I see it's autumn there. Ours is just beginning, late this year (no big surprise).

    When I say thousands, RR....it literally is at peak times between 5am and 9pm.... and then again after 5 until around 8pm... all just pouring off the train, with standing room only...

    Do you get any Freight trains through there?
    Delusions of adequacy.
