"All the stations". Entertaining quest to visit every station in Britain on YouTube

For the past couple of months I've been watching a YouTube series about a couple visiting all 2,563 railway stations in Britain. They post a well produced, entertaining and slightly whimsical 10 minute video most days. Well worth subscribing to. I watch it while I'm doing the dishes or something else around the house.

The first episode covers the Penzance to St. Ives branch in Cornwall, it's a bit less trainy and a bit more traveloguey than most episodes, but it's a good introduction to their quest

Likewise I too have been watching Geoff and Vicky's adventure, very entertaining.

I have been subscribed to the Londonist Ltd channel for a few years along with "Tube nut" Geoff Marshall's channel

Geoff has posted lots of tube clips along with his "tube challenges"

They have just reached the half way point with their "all the stations" challenge

If you want a laugh search out "Secrets of the Cable car" (on Londonist Ltd Channel) - it was published on 1st April 2015

Actually as a big fan of aerial passenger ropeways (I admit there aren't that many of us), I made a special point of going to the Greenwich Peninsula on the DLR last June so I could ride that Emirates gondola.

While Geoff Marshall has the fashionable position amongst trendy Londoners of making fun of it, it's actually an incredible experience. Higher than Big Ben (or the Elizabeth tower for pedants) and vastly cheaper than the London Eye ferris wheel (you can use an Oyster Card to ride it), it's an amazing experience, almost like a helicopter ride 90 metres above the Thames and inner London.

Highly recommended. Smile

Thankyou Bogong for letting us know about this great series.

I have previously liked Geoff's work as the Londonist, particularly the "secrets" series.

I have now binged watched this series and for a youtuber it is excellent. He and Vicki do a great job. Yes Michael P's TV show is great too, but this is a refreshing approach. I find it fun, informative and interesting.

Quite interesting the number of people working on it.

Anyway I will keep on watching and kick them some money.

I wish I had read this two weeks ago when we was there. We are normally into lets do the big tall things but I balked at the cost of the EYE and declined

Well Geoff and Vicki have completed their quest of visiting all 2,563 stations on mainland Britain plus the Isle of Wight. Their video editors are a few days behind, so the last couple of episodes haven't been uploaded yet.

Here's a TV interview with them just after they finished their 15 week epic.
