Due to the weather forecast, I hadn't planned on doing much today. I found myself on a train to Catford Bridge and there was a convenient train from nearby Catford, so off I went.
Yes, it was very wet in Kent today.

A trip from Aberdeen to Dundee this week netted a few.
First day's weather was foul but I was so wet by Carnoustie, the walk to Barry Links for the peak hours only service wasn't a problem. Luckily I'd got there in time for the 18:11 as my original plan was to get the 18:47 which was cancelled.

Golf Street was initially a fail due to the short platform and no announcements but I was able to head for Broughty Ferry instead and fit in Golf Street the following day.
Wednesday's weather was great and a nice walk round Balmossie/Monifieth areas.

Well done on 1000. I have used the other three Barry stations many many times, but never Barry Links :D

I had to make a legitimate trip to Oxford today and my lift was happy to make the pick up at DID and drop off at OXP. :D
There was no time left before sunset to do any of the stations between Oxford and Reading as they are poorly served (some are every 2 hours)
but I had enough daylight to fit in a couple on the North Downs line on the way home.

Might have taken me a few weeks to get round to visiting the newest stations on LU but did them both today. Nine Elms seemed to be the busier of the two stations, but the trains were reasonably busy.
