The best laid plans of mice and men !
I had it timed to perfection – I would catch the X6 to Bristol at 10.25 that would get me into the bus station at 11.11 An X39 would then take me to Bath bus station by about 12.15 to 12.30.
The steam train Clan Line was due in
at 12.40. – what could be more simple. Bath
I got to
too late to get
the X39 instantly. There was also a snafu with the run of the busses. X39 came
in late. 2 at the same time. Then to compound it the bus that was second went
out first whilst I sat in the first bus and didn’t leave Bristol bus station until 11.50. Bristol
As I got through Saltford I realised that I would be too late at
station. I got off at the Globe Newton
St. Loe and went down into the field opposite. A good place to get shots but of
course no seats there. Then to compound my troubles the train ran late and did not pass until 13.20 - almost 40 minutes of standing and waiting. However I got 12 pix some of the best I have taken at that spot. Set the camera at 10 frames per second and took three bursts. 3 - 3 & 6. Bath
Rabby Burns was right though wasn't he?
