...I took the train to Morpeth.
A friend of ours from Church is involved in the push to re-open the local railway lines in South-East Northumberland. He regularly takes the train to Morpeth - and now so do I. I look forward even more to be able to take the train to Blyth and Ashington in the future - and even the train manager on my Inter-City service seemed to know about what was going on.
It's all rather smashing, actually - re-opening train lines feels so positive. I believe there are even plans to take the trains back to Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, now that really is exciting.
