Windsor and Eton Riverside

Yesterday I looked back precisely ten years and that brought to my attention a trip made in June 2006. It was to Windsor. We’d have travelled by car but we were meeting people arriving by train and that took us to the railway station called Windsor and Eton Riverside. And here it is.

Let’s ignore the train which was a very ordinary, for them, suburban electric train. The station, we can see for the train approaches buffers, is a terminus. And Windsor, of course, is the home of monarchs so the station was built above and beyond what might have been expected for a little branch line terminus. It has a grand little roof to ensure any travelling king or queen was kept dry. Actually, I believe they tended to use the GWR station rather than this one.

My previous visit had been back in 1961 when I travelled on a steam hauled special around a number of suburban lines in south west London.

On that basis of frequency of visit my next journey to Windsor would be in 2051 and I’d be over 100!
