Train whistle blowin'

Makes a sleepy noise

Underneath their blankets, go all the girls and boys

Rockin', Rollin', Ridin', out along the bay

All bound for Morningtown, many miles a-way

 

[The Seekers - Morningtown Ride]

 

I remember this song from when I was little! - The picture was taken on the new(ish) Grand Central service which runs from Sunderland through to London Kings Cross

 

I got on it at Eaglescliffe, and travelled first class to York.

 

It's a really nice service, lots of leg room, board games built into the table and just a nice relaxed ride - a far cry from the usual packed commuter trains - but maybe that's just the perk of first class!
