Jonathan: Wonderful scenery all the way – especially after York, highlights being Durham, Newcastle on Tyne, Alnmouth, Berwick on Tweed. Delays due to a broken-down cross-country train and a ‘bridge-strike’ (ie a vehicle having hit a rail bridge) mean the train got into Edinburgh 45mins late. I now had just two trains, each 15mins apart to get to Queen St or I’d miss the Oban train. Waverley is a complicated station to get around, all the more so with a bike, having to use the lifts and even having to queue for them! By the skin of my teeth I got the next train and I needn’t have worried as there were few folk on it, and not other bikes that I knew of. Saw some lengths of the airport branch of the tram line under construction: didn’t design that but did do a lot of cleaning up of the topographical survey model.
