I've been in the USA for the past couple of weeks. During the visit I took a few train journeys, including an Amtrak ride from Cleveland, Ohio to Buffalo, New York and rides on the New Jersey Transit and Long Island Rail Road lines around New York City. I also saw the light rail systems in Cleveland and Buffalo and the Steamtown museum in Scranton, PA. An extensive photo gallery is here:

Here are a few sample photos to wet some appetites:







I've also kicked off my July UK rail gallery with a few photos of the Northern Belle:

On Thursday and Friday I travelled to Cardiff to catch and ride some of the Class 142 and 143 Pacers before they disappear in the next few months, as well as the Class 37 services on the Rhymney line.

I got more than I bargained for, with an extra 37 in Bristol and a 397 on delivery there too.

Last week I travelled to Devon, taking the West of England Main Line all the way from Waterloo to Exeter. After this I spent some time riding and photographing the GWR Class 143 Pacers before paying a visit to the Dartmouth Steam Railway. A stop in Dawlish on the way back preceded a night in Bristol. The following morning I visited the Avon Valley Railway and walked the former line from there into Bath before returning home via Didcot and Oxford.
