|the view from the train|
We had to change trains at Perth to get to Edinburgh, but when the train was approaching the station, we suddenly stopped and were told that there was a problem as a freight train had damaged the tracks and we couldn't pull up just yet. We had a connection to catch and the conductor that walked through the train assured us that our connection would wait for us. We pulled into a different platform, and ran with our luggage to the other platform for our connecting train. There was no train
It had left!
There were at least 25 of us and when we were told we could get another train on platform 1 ( we were on platform 5) we all hurried off to trek across. 4 platforms, up stairs...... Until one man came back and said that that train had also left without us!
By now as one can imagine, we were all pretty pissed off. We were finally told that we could either wait for the next train that would arrive in an hour or take the taxis they were arranging for us.
We took the taxi.
I did however get plenty of pictures of the scenery through the train window.......
Last 2 pictures are in Edinburgh, grassmarket and the castle.
