I bet all this is taken for granted by passengers today
Chris: If they notice at all Lisl, most are too busy rushing to work in order to generate enough money to provide for our ENORMOUS pensions

An impressive structure and a fine testiment to the skills and vision of Brunel. Your train looks more interesting than those used by SOuth West Trains. No sign of the overhead electricity yet.
Chris: Electric services have been held up, the won't start from Bristol until 2020
BTM is a magnificent station Tiff, if not a little crafty. Still, I suppose that not much can be done about that. Ah, how about hanging a blind of see through plastic strips at each end?
Chris: I'll suggest it to Network Rail Chad. I think you meant draughty
This might make some fine shadow play on a sunny day.
Chris: Yes it does Mary
This must be Temple Meads Station
Chris: Yes this is the main train shed
It appears to have even more of a curve in the station than York, although they both have magnificent roofs.
Chris: Indeed Brian they have similarities

Very impressive
Chris: That's a lot of Victorian cast iron Anne
lovely shot, Chris. i like the light and shadow.
Chris: Much obliged to you Ayush
Ah,we knew how to build structures like this once upon a time - we probably import such things from China these days!
Chris: Indeed we almost certainly do Tom, Victorian Britain was a thing of wonder..
I like the canopy!
Chris: Wonderful isn't it
