Trips that were made in February, April, July and September. Countries visited were Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and a foray into Denmark. Having done three of the trips by car France was obviously visited, but only for the brief period it took to get out of the country, of back to the rail terminus. With what appears to be a growing number of conflict issues between rail enthusiast and French authority I decided that France was not worth the effort, nor expenditure! As of 26 October there is a chance I may get another 2 or 3 day trip back in before the year ends, Belgium being the most likely choice.
