All The Stations 2017
What happened in 2017?
During the spring and summer of 2017 we - Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall - travelled to ALL the national railway stations in Great Britain, all 2,563 of them. The entire adventure took three and a half months (14 weeks, 6 days and 22 minutes to be precise!) and an array of videos charted our progress around the railway network in England, Wales and Scotland.
We filmed the journey as we went and with the support of an incredible team were able to:
- Produce four professionally-edited videos each week that documented four separate days of the journey, bringing our followers closer to the experience.
- Share the journey in real-time using Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Live streams, photos and updates kept everyone in touch between the videos.
After the journey was complete, the work didn’t stop there. We produced a feature length documentary of the adventure, giving a behind the scenes insight into our experiences, including additional footage that had never been seen before. We also wrote a book, The Railways Adventures, inspiring other would-be adventurers to get out there and enjoy the country by train.
Whilst our original journey is over, the legacy of All The Stations continues with All The Station Ireland in 2019, and we have continued to make videos around the country (includding visiting the three new stations since we complete 2,563 - taking out total to all 2,566) with the aim to take a fresh look at the railways by focusing on the unique, the surprising and the benefits the network can bring to people across the country.
