Exe to Sea Cruises, (Dawlish)

Devon, UK - Train rounding the cliffs, heading toward the Dawlish sea wall. One of the best train journeys in the UK. The tracks hug the estuary of the Exe river, then go along the edge of the beach for several miles. The cliffs are red from the high percentage of iron in the rock.

I remember when the trains had corridors before entering the carriage. Sitting in the compartments with, maybe, six or eight passengers to a compartment and the luggage stored overhead.

Deep under old New York City, USA, lies abandoned platforms, train tracks and entire train stations. Some, maybe glimpsed by passengers on some lines, others lay hidden behind doors or flights of stairs. The most startling, is the terminal which rests beneath City Hall Park, an opulent and beautiful show-piece, but deserted and largely forgotten since the 1940s. New York, NY.
