Inverness Railway Station

Here we see the main waiting area at Inverness Station.

Inverness is a real centre of the rail network with direct trains to major stations such as London Kings Cross, London Euston, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. There are also daily trains to outlying towns such as Kyle of Lochalsh, Thurso and Wick.

I shall have the joy of meeting Bishop Howard Tripp at this station tomorrow. Bishop Tripp ordained me at St Thomas Aquinas Church, Ham in July 1997, and he is coming to join me for lunch in my new home. Tomorrow is of course the Memorial of St Thomas Aquinas - how appropriate!

I've always liked travelling by train. When I was younger you could travel from Southampton to Brighton along the coast without getting off - which I did to see my Grandad. I used to enjoy the journey as it wasn't as fast as the trains run now and you could see where you were going.

I love train travel! Bishop Tripp was most enthusiastic about his journey from Huntley - where he was staying as a guest of Bishop John Jukes.
