One of my haiku selected as Best of Mainichi Shimbun, Japan for 2012 is about Sir John Betjeman, CBE, the poet and savior of St Pancras train station










As many of you know who read my haiku, I'm a big fan of writing about trains and train stations.

My two favourite train stations are St Pancras Station (London, England) and Gare du Nord (Paris, France) followed by two South West England stations Temple Meads and Bath Spa.  But really I love almost every train station I've visited/travelled to and from in the U.K.; Europe; and Japan.
