Not quite the Chattanooga choo choo. Single carriage train to Melksham and its parish church. Last train back leaves too early for me so it’s either cycle to Trowbridge and catch the Portsmouth train or just keep pedalling home.
Really nice train guard who sold his car 15 years ago and never regretted it. He heard me on the radio and wanted to talk. We compared touring bikes, and he tried to lift the Pashley Sovereign off the ground. Was I, he wondered, going to carry on when Lent has ended?
