    There are two rail stations in St. Albans, the main one being served from Farringdon. Where do I change if I want to go to St. Albans Abbey?

    The main one, if you use the main line to Bedford and north. It's a half-mile walk to the abbey. The Abbey Station is at the end of a branch line from Watford (16 minutes journey at 45 minutes intervals); its a bit closer to the abbey.

    Thanks.

    I managed to trace it from St. Pancras and lesser from Euston.

    Funny, the train journey website told me to walk 22 mins from the main St Albans to Abbey. It a long walk up the hill and down again. :crazy:

    The website is wrong again, you were right, have to depart from Euston and change at Watford junction. To St. Albans Abbey is a side line, one per hour no wonder they advised to walk from the main station St. Albans is quicker.

    Bump into someone who works at Ford Capital while waiting for the train back to Watford Junction. I asked did the credit crunch affected the car buying business. He said waiting for new engines. :eek: Ford don't have engines to meet 225g/k and they are deperately working on it in contrast to Merc already introduced this from 2004. :rolleyes:
