Thursday 25 January - 1 Morning

I went to Paddington station this morning to see what changes there were now that the Hitachi electric traions are coming into service.  It started being very disappointing, the only main line trains visible were the old polluting diesels which have been around for 50 years.
The old order -= diesels which pollute the air in the station.

 Eventually a couple of the new trains turned up. Their acceleration out of the platform is impressive.

I stopped into Kings Cross to admire the statue of Sir Nigel Gresley designer of many famous LNER steam locomotives
This morning Mary did some serious walking and found these swans and other water birds in Kensington Gardens
