The Royal Train


I was delighted to learn of the Royal Visit to Manchester on 28th February 2008, less than a year after the Royal Maundy Service was held at Manchester Cathedral in April 2007. Her Most Gracious Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh would be arriving at Victoria Station by Royal Train at 10.03am before visiting the Urbis Centre, Salford University, the Bridgewater Hall and finally opening the new County Court. I made sure I arrived at the station at 8 o'clock to get my customary front row position!

I also got close up to the Royal Train on the platform, so I hope you will take a look at my pictures of this most splendid Royal conveyance.
