Train depot, Dumfries287 viewsI started out early in the morning and boarded the train at Newton Station ("near" Cambuslang, although there is a Cambuslang train station as well) and headed south to Dumfries. I spent most of the day there with John Colvin who I had been introduced to (via e-mail) by my "hosts", Paul and Heini Euliano, who had graciously offered the use of their home as a base for my stay; even though they were visiting friends/family in the USofA. From Dumfries we travelled to many of the places my ancestors had lived, and others that John thought I should see.
