One day Jerry and I went on an adventure. I don't remember this at all, only fleeting pictures in my mind. Apparently my mum found me. I can see her now standing talking, mum wearing a turban on her hair and her pini on, her arms folded over her chest wtching as one of the men climbed down to get me off the railway tracks. Jerry would not let anyone near me. I think my dad eventually caught up having gone looking elsewhere and got Jerry by the collar. I can see that in my minds eye too. Mum was going to smack me for running off but Jerry went for her hand. I was not punished. He was a good dog.
In later years we would walk past that spot on the way to Dunstable. We walked most places when I lived in England. My friends and I would stand on the railway bridge and watch the steam trains go under and stand in the steam. I often thought of my old dog and wondered what would have happened if I was not found when I was.
When I was older we would take the train up to London to go shopping after work. It was 30 minute on the fast train, it only stopped a couple of times. London shops stayed open late on Thursdays.
when I worked in London I caught the train every day from Putney to Vauxhall. Train travel was something we did all the time.
I have yet to ride a train in the USA.
One of my favourite shows as a child was The Railway Children it was a BBC TV series on childrens television.
For a fun family show, watch on Netflix.
I do intend to ride a train here some day...........I want to take the train to Agawa Canyon in Ontario.
....and next time I go home to England I think I will take the train from London to Edinborough Scotland.
