Look what arrived in Friday's post...my @allthestations tee! And they've thrown in a couple of freebies too! I've been following Geoff and Vicki's journey ever since seeing them on BBC Breakfast a while back. Over the last three months, they've been travelling to all 2563 railway stations in Britain funded by a Kickstarter campaign and the Rail Delivery Group.
As you know, I just love a project with a purpose and, for me, the whole concept and execution of this has been really engaging.
Why is it important? Well, within the next decade, changes to the rail network will be more pivotal than ever, and they want to capture this critical moment in Britain’s rail history, producing a snapshot of today’s railways for posterity.
To ensure the project becomes an asset for the future they have begun conversations with the @railwaymuseum and @ltmuseum and hope to donate all relevant material to their collections.
Although Geoff and Vicki have just finished their journey in Wick, do take a look if you haven't already. Their YouTube channel is awesome — their videos have become really enjoyable comfort viewing for me. There's lots to catchup on and apparently there's still another nine episodes to come...can't wait!
Congratulations to Geoff, Vicki and the behind-the-scenes team on completing such a wonderful, valuable journey.
