My first rail journey in this trip was done from Sheffield to York. Booking, though, was done with First TransPennine Express as they had free ticket delivery to my friend’s house.
The Class 221 Super Voyager pulling in for my journey to York. This train is bound for Glasgow.

Besides looking at your ticket, your seat reservation will also be displayed above your seat for the journey this seat is “locked” for.
This train goes via Leeds instead of Doncaster, so it shares the same tracks as the HSTs.
Passing through more open fields of the UK.
Arrived at York.
The York city walls were just around the corner outside the station.
After passing under the walls, you have to cross Lendal Bridge to reach the main part of York.
York is a historic city and the place to go to if you interpret the architecture in the UK as such.
I was here for a particularly different reason of course, which will be featured in my next post. Stay tuned!
