Paddington bench - Paddington Station

One of the most moving things I have seen in a long time was the pile of hand-written thank you notes from children, which were left here and at the nearby statue, when Michael Bond, who wrote the Paddington books, died recently.

 

Some people had left pots of marmalade, and even a few marmalade sandwiches.

 

Books - like trains - can take us on the most wonderful journeys.
