The Royal Scotsman

June 30, 2012

Now here’s a trip to potentially rival Riley’s journey across Canada. It’s not cheap, but it does involve distilled spirits so it may be worth the price. There’s an article about the train that you can access here. The train follows a variety of routes including a circle trip through Scotland, Wales and England. I would love to go to Edinburgh and hear someone call the “all aboard” for me and my bride. Someday, perhaps.
