"Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Devon..."

Having seen Phil's recent adventures on Facebook I'll refrain from guessing.

EDIT: Oops. Just realised I've inadvertently given a clue.  Embarrassed

Where did Phil's latest Madventure take him to?

Mad answer then in as this is the "Lighter Side".    These are timewarp pictures brought to us by Dr Who.  No. 1 is in the yard at Westbury, showing one of the Fawley - Great Yarmouth units; the year is 2035.   Picture No. 2 has to be Bere Alston with the Kelly Bray bay in the background, and the Plymouth to Exeter line in the foreground.

Sorry - was I supposed to answer just one at a time?   Grin

Hmm. MAD as in Madrid perhaps? (which Google Photos has kindly sent me a reminder that I was in that city 9 years ago today).

'Mad' as in 'outrageous' rather than Madrid - however two of those letters can be found in the name of the wider location of one of the pictures  Roll Eyes Tongue

MelkshAm ? Wink Cheesy Grin

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

I don't think so  Shocked Roll Eyes , but the Trans-Wilts does have a tenuous connection to at least one of the pictures.

I expect the train shown has brakes made in Melksham?

Quite possibility, but one of the places in the pictures shares a name with somewhere on the Trans-Wilts.

It is possible to travel by train between the two places, but you would need to change trains twice; all three trains would be on a different gauge and you would almost certainly pass through terrain similar to this.....

Well it is single track like Melksham!

I know the country concerned and I'm jealous!

Given that many clues ... I can find a picture of the station in 2. at Salisbury, Adelaide. The train might be in Adelaide too, though not on that line and not in that livery, which does belong a long way away.

Not in Adelaide, but, yes, it does belong a long way away  Smiley
