Public transport in Dismal Swamp

If you want to get away from Dismal Swamp, here is one of your options: rail travel. I’ll be happy to take your money sell you a ticket to wherever you want to go.

Bring a cushion, especially if you’re not well padded. Oh, and there’s no Wi-Fi access in any of the carriages. But, that’s a plus, right?

All aboard!

    • There’s an old train station right there, and it has recently been turned into a café. The owner (he makes really good meat pies …) is converting a couple of old carriage into space for eating. Good on him!

  6. My late husband would have spent days….maybe weeks or months there.
    And by the way lady….even those of us who are “well padded” would still need a good cushion in one of those.

  12. They are nice photos though. I know here were still weatherboard trains running in the mid fifties. Dad could not believe it and wrote back to Holland about it>
