My railway comfort zone is fairly limited - southern England and Switzerland. Outside those areas my knowledge is patchy, and gets patchier the further out I go!

I was a year into my driving job when I snatched the chance to visit Doncaster station. I knew it was a busy place, but didn't know where lines went or what traffic was carried. These pictures are from a visit of about an hour, pre-electrification of course! As well as HSTs and First Generation DMUs there were class 56s on coal trains, a class 31, class 37 and class 47. Not bad at all!
