Subject: RE: Discussion: Love Affair With Trains
I think youre quite right Kitty.That sense of new space and going somewhere different is not there in British Railways. The lack of lasting canal songs is the same as the railway thing, their building was celebrated in contemporary songs which were quickly forgotten. But the sea obviously went right through British life, language and music, and is still going strong( in spite of the channel tunnel).
