Day trippers with style

Rob Coles – our excellent photographer of trains, and other things – writes:

What must be the greatest distance travelled for a day at Bath Christmas Market was the journey by the Blue Midland Pullman that brought passengers from Newcastle- Upon-Tyne. 

The Blue Pullman  passing Box in spite of the fog just a few minutes late after 370 miles

Arriving at a little after 11.30am – having left Newcastle at 6am – and leaving Bath at 3.30 pm and arriving home at 9.24 pm. Just six minutes late! A round trip of over 750 miles
