Review of 2017 : May

If April was canal heavy May was railway super heavy! The month began with a couple of diesel galas at Chinnor (CPRR) and Wirksworth (EVR). Then i headed up to York to stay for a couple of nights so i could visit the National Railway Museum's two sites in York itself and also Shildon up in County Durham. I was also able to visit the iconic Darlington station and managed to squeeze in a short visit to Harrogate too.

Returning South there was no time to rest as i attended the SVR's diesel gala. One of the highlights of the year for sure. If that wasn't enough i also managed to fit in visits to Walsall and Buckinghamshire including Chesham - the furthest point of the tube map. Quite a well travelled month.

Song of the month was the slightly aptly named "long holiday" by Flyying Colours.

Aboard a Northern Pacer, proper Pacer!
