HARTFORD, MAY 18th 2019
Waiting for the Brit.
Hartford station as a Pendolino hurtles through.
Local for Lime Street.
Days of Tizer and sandwiches recalled as The Lakelander approaching its stop as passengers wait to board.
Having spent many hours on this station in the days of steam, I simply had to watch "Britannia" restarting under the bridge as happened so many times in those far-off days. Stopping trains were announced by the signalman ringing a hand bell through the box window.
Unfortunately, 70000 stopped beyond the bridge, but its restart was nonetheless dramatic. Remarkable sight!
