MEP by night

The lights of Grantham provide a welcome respite from the gloomy shapes of moonlit countryside.
Even at the speed of the HST, Kings Cross is still some way off.

By Grantham the cloud had been closing in. By Peterborough, bands of light rain become a constant shower.
Peterborough station is deserted. It's a night not fit for man nor beast, but the railways carry on.

Next stop, Kings Cross.

The stations of satellite towns flash past with increasing frequency until the landscape becomes awash with suburbia.
The train slows to match the line speeds ahead. After so long at two miles per minute, it feels like the train is crawling to its destination.
At Kings Cross station the glare of the lights outside the carriage finally match the glare of the lights inside.

Nice idea ! We've had very few screenshots of MEP so far, and I for one would really like to see more.

Thanks Dave.
I had a few ideas that have not worked exactly as I wanted. There will be more posts to this thread eventually.
I hope I won't incur too many infringement points on my Poetic License.

As I am in no rush for my destination of Broad Street, I hitch a train out to Finsbury Park to get a DMU to Broad Street.
The rain has stopped but humidity still hangs in the air. A DMU arrives and I'm glad to be back in a heated carriage of some sort again.

Image
Still a bit of rail traffic around. Had to wait a bit before Canonbury Tunnel.


Image
Most of the stations are near deserted, but Canonbury station seems busier than the rest.


Image
Dalston Junction station has some patronage.


Image
With Haggerston and Shoreditch behind me, I'm on the home stretch to Broad Street.


Image
Nearly there.


Image
Broad Street at last.
