yet more trains!


I apologise but I cannot resist these railway postcards. This is 'Damredub' A propelling loaded sand train out of Churchways Quarry in 1980 on Leighton Buzzard Railway.

I suppose it's one for the collector but as a postcard that you might send to someone - unlikely.

More Trains!


I know trains are always an easy target but there a target that I struggle to resist.

Here is one of the Maglev Transit system at Birmingham International Airport. Not surpsisingly it's unused.

More next time.

How to Source New Cards


With new supplies of cards a little thin on the ground, I joined a site called postcrossing.com in an attempt to source some new ones.

It's a nice idea for a site where cards travel all over the world and you request the style of card that you like to collect.

As always, the interpretation of 'boring' differed wildly between the individuals but this is probably my favourite card to date. It is, in case you hadn't realised, the vestibule of the metro station Vorobiovy Gory. I shall endeavour to get some more in - next update follows soon.

Hotels


I always find it odd that postcards of hotels can make for some of the best boring postcards. I give you this as an example.

Again, you may disagree with me that it's boring. I think it makes the hotel look like a prison. Maybe it was one...

So What's Boring?


Looking down some of the comments, I can see I've stirred up a common question with this blog: Just what is boring?

Of course I'm not going to tell you what you should think and the term is a bit general. I suppose to sum it up, I feel that these are some of the most unlikely postcards you may wish to send. Sure the photo of the Mersey Tunnel is quite stunning but why would you send that as a postcard?

Anyway, I hope the blog's enjoyable whether you agree with some of the posts or not and please keep commenting. In the meantime I give you The Old Rectory, Crowhurst - New Wing.

More next week.

PS Bert if you're still reading - yes I would be very interested in some of your Russian postcards.

More Railway


I am delighted and also a little embarassed to find that, having neglected this blog for some time, I now have followers!


I am sincerely grateful. It is disheartening to think that you are just doing this with no-one reading and therefore you have inspired me to carry on so Thank You.


Please enjoy this card, the second in my railway collection, depicting the coming of the Docklands Light Railway. This shows the Construction of trackbed and station foundations in Devons Road, 3rd July 1985. I promise I will be back with an update next week.
