While Geoff Marshall and Vicki Pipe were doing their AllTheStations project, the PupAllTheStations project was going in full swing so when AllTheStations announced they were offering the chance for everyone to #HaveAnAdventure, it was a chance too good to pass up. The challenge was to go to a station never visited before and take a photo while there. They offered a sign to print out, and an email address to submit pics to for possible inclusion into a video montage. Pink Puppy Echo and I (along with XavierWolf as the photographer) decided to attack our first request stop, Dilton Marsh. Some research was done into local amenities and a pub located, and then tickets were booked. Come the day of the challenge, we jumped on a train and asked the guard to stop at our requested station. Before long we were exiting onto the smallest platform we had ever visited. We waited for the couple of other people there to board the train and then set to work taking photos. While we didn’t get into the montage (can’t imagine why), we did have a lovely day out. Even found that the pub had Otter ales on tap and Scampi & Lemon fries – double win. Drinks and snacks consumed, we flagged down the train home – only we didn’t get there because the day wasn’t over yet.
