Walkerburt, do you know who wrote these? Both very good, but I prefer the warmth of the first one. That is a rail journey I’d have liked to have taken also.

I believe that the poet’s name was A.M.Harbord - it is beautifully written.

The second is attributed to T.C.Kingsmill Moore, author of “A Man May Fish”
