60103 Flying Scotsman’s Inaugural run from London to York 25/02/2016 

Platform Four: Retford to York

Retford station is where dreams go to die. To wait there is to step into the Narnia of the rail network, you will wait hours, maybe days for a connecting train, yet when it arrives it transpires that you have stood there waiting for only ten or fifteen minutes. You can’t kill time at Retford station; you can only prolong its suffering.
