Today’s photo is from Carlisle station, which I travelled through this evening. It’s also an accidental selfie!

Photo-a-day 103: Glazed portico

image

This is a terrible photograph of the newly glazed portico at Newcastle Central Station. It has turned out to be a really rather lovely space, transformed from a dingy taxi rank to a light and airy entrance way. Although the excessively large copper boxes containing the ticket machines do make it feel a touch claustrophobic at points and needlessly block sight lines.

Weekend read: End of the line

My recommended read for this weekend is Charles Fleming’s moving piece from Los Angeles Magazine, in which he describes the suicide of Ron Iseli. He uses this very personal story to illustrate the wider problem of preventing deaths – accidental and otherwise – on railways. It’s an absorbing yet disturbing read.

Photo-a-day 280: Newcastle station plaque

There’s not a lot I can add about this plaque… other than that it’s in an odd place, on Platform 4, rather than near the entrance or in a prominent location!
