    The 47s in particular, even compared to the Peaks, seemed to throw out copious amounts of clag.

    Because they are utter beasts, of course ;)

    (I would have a 47 as my profile pic, but I struggled to find one that worked.)

    Depends on who you're asking ofc. ;)

    And the latter depends on what kind of 47 pic you wanna use (livery, era, clag or no clag, type of train being hauled etc). A few mid-70s pics here, though they may be too large to use for profile pics lol
    Love your profile picture.

    I always wondered what the deal with the red seats on the 334s was.
    Strathclyder
    Strathclyder
    Aye, I thought the 334s needed a little time in the limelight before I move on to the likes of the 303s, 314s etc lol

    Have always wondered about it myself, whether if it's was a stylistic choice or what. Certainly remember it fondly at any rate. :)

    You can still see the red moquette in the drivers cab today.

    Aye, that certainly sticks out on them now! lol
    New profile banner photo: the Clyde excursion steamer TS King Edward (1901-1951) - the world's first merchant/commercial vessel to be powered by steam turbines.

    Another of my hot takes: I'd argue the King Edward is among the most revolutionary vessels to ever set sail in the last 120 years.
    My railway-related hot take for today: Class 334s are not that bad. Much as I miss the 303s, I'll always have a soft spot for the Scottish Junipers.

    COVID test result: negative. Thank the lord; may have been a bad cold or a chest infection I had.

    Thanks sir, have largely recovered from what it was. :)
    Side-effects of 2nd COVID vaccine shot so far: tiredness, aching arm (a given) and fever-like symptoms. I know eveyone reacts differently to it, but still.

    Urgh....

    Had it on the afternoon of the 30th August. Felt beyond rotten yesterday morning (migraine & nausea primarily), but am feeling a lot better this morning (migraine has subsided into a comparatively mild headache & I certainly don't feel like throwing up now).

    Cheers BTW. :)

    Great, yes this is not uncommon and you should feel a gradual improvement as the day goes on. The symptoms are due to your body reacting to a perceived threat and diverting resources to produce an immune response so it's nothing to worry about.

    Glad you are feeling better :)
    Strathclyder

    Yeah, I knew that's what it was at it's core and while it's of course nothing to worry about in the long run, it was still ruddy unpleasant lol Still got something of a aching arm, but that should fade in a couple days like it did with my first one.

    Thanks once again for your concern. :)
    New Chromebook arrived today. RIP Samsung Chromebook (Dec. 2012 - Jun. 2021).

    9 years! You really squeezed the juice out of that one!

    8 years and 6 months, at least in my ownership; was of course built before Dec. 2012. But yeah, I wrung the life out of it. By far my longest-lived PC/laptop.

    Let's hope the new one lasts nearly as long lol ;)
    What is your avatar?

    I keep thinking its the Chernobyl control rods jumping.
    Strathclyder
    Strathclyder
    It is indeed the Chernobyl control rod and fuel channel caps jumping up and down like pieces of popcorn seconds before the reactor lid (upper biological shield or UPS or Elena) is blown off like a wine cork from the ever-increasing steam pressure. It's not from the show itself obviously, it's a rendering in Unreal Engine 4 by Kristóf Lovas. Link here.
    Kippers for breakfast, Aunt Helga? Is it St. Swithin's Day already?

    That is a quote from the episode my new avatar is pulled from, I believe. Season 6 Episode 1 - Bart of Darkness.

    Oh I see haha. Coolio.
    I definitely agree with you there. The Shinning is fantastic, and those are my 2 favourite seasons.

    As for that scene...wow, he acted that well... :shock:
    Is it really a year ago since I last sent birthday greetings to you, I see you are now in your 20s.

    Thanks for your support of the Station Code quiz.
