    I guess these might count:

    1st Jan -
    Birmingham International AirRail
    Birmingham Airport AirRail

    (I had time to waste at Birmingham International before a voyager towards Coventry so decided to take a little ride)

    My first trip out of 2019. I visited these shacks with my friend and colleague from my FGW days Banjo125. Nice to see you again mate.
    Just one more shack to go to clear the Glasgow Roundabout ticket area.

    How did you find those little shacks? Lochluichart is one of my go-to places to sleep if it's too wet for my tent and I'm too tight to shell out for a b&b! :D

    3 and a half hours in -4°C was quite long enough for me!

    I'm not brave enough to try the Highlands in the Winter! Why did you go to those shacks at this time of year???

    For a feeling of proper remoteness. One can't live in Scotland and not experience winter in the Highlands.

    The two on the Nottingham - Grantham were a change in plan move as my main aim for today was platform 2 at Doncaster but that has a 'unit' parked in there.

    In a similar area to Kite I kicked off 2019 with the following:-

    Peartree
    Uttoxeter
    Willington
    Duffield
    Spondon

    Last two used 156403 and 153326, possibly sat in the same seat a couple of hours after the grand master of station clearance !
