For some hardy souls (or single young men) train spotting provides a much needed outlet for their adolescent energy. Check out this video by Delticmatt at Taplow train station and then view the tribute to the self-same person with added speech bubbles in case you don’t hear the “oooh aaaahhh” and “Oh Yeah!” These trains just keep on coming.
Just remember, say no to the guid! Why make their lives more difficult?
March 25, 2007 – DM has asked me to remove the video which was on this page which I am happy to do so as he’s made it private anyway. It’s a shame really as it was a great video!
30, 40, 173… the death toll rises. I heard this on the morning news as I got ready to leave for work. I texted Cachu in Madrid and she and her friends are fine, but they were watching it on tv. She couldn’t describe the horror of it.
Last November, I visited one of the train stations in Madrid with Cachu so I’m wondering now if that was one of the stations attacked.
The BBC has more coverage as does elpais if you speak Spanish.
Later.. More people have died. What a day. Yahoo has more, and photos.
Later Still.. I rang Cachu. She and her immediate friends are fine, thank God, but they’re all very upset and distressed. College was canceled early as parents were ringing all the time asking about their children. Some didn’t show up today. She told me that we met Carlos in one of the train stations that had been targeted. The train was late this morning and the bomb went off outside the station, but I remember the place well and I’ll post some photos of the indoor garden there later tonight.
