Paris train track


Sky, and a little bit of hedgerow at the base of the photo, from Northwest Essex. Buildings and train track photographed from the window of a Eurostar carriage, heading back to the UK.
Chilling channel tunnel fact:
"The [refrigeration]plants provide nearly 15,000 tons of refrigeration -- comparable to about 260,000 home refrigerators [to cool the channel tunnel]." Click here for full story in the 'Amazing projects' website.

Great boat, I am sure though that this is one of thousands of similar photographs of it. Whilst we were there I saw several people take pictures.

London boat trip

Originally uploaded by art-pod.
We recently travelled by boat from Tillbury to Greenwich . I was interested to hear the guide say that the 'Pluto Pipe' (see this ) was made in a factory he pointed out, on the Gravesend side. I think he said the factory was ' A I Henley's', I saw a section of the pipe at the excellent D Day museum in Portsmouth (here) .
