Having been to the wilds of England. Scotland and Wales, a trip to Altnabreac on the Far North Line has completed my travels for Remote Stations.

In all I’ve visited 40 stations, most still with a train service, if not always very regular, and a few long closed. I’ve walked across moors, marshes, fens and enjoyed some of the most remote and wonderful scenery in Britain, sometimes on foot and often through the train window.

Both stations and trains have been of varied types and size and as I’ve researched each station many interesting tales have been unearthed.

Remote Stations will be published by Matador in summer 2018.
