Germany's 'R' rate has just been reported as rising to 1.79. Not good news. Perhaps we should at least keep wearing...
I'm completely lost with ticketing. Can somebody help me with the best/cheapest option? I've not been to London Town since the 1970's. Where and how do I buy a ticket? Which one do I buy? How much will it cost? Which website do I use?
Lots of questions I know. Apologies. Ticketing is so...
I caught these four guys trespassing.
Do we have any Queen fans here? Freddie and the boys made my teenage years.
Here's the full track...
Proper bloke. Much missed. :(
Oops, my editing is atrocious. Forgive me. Give it a listen though. I don't have no time for monkey business! :)
I'd like to make use of Northern's Explorer 55 ranger offer but it requires proof of age. My Passport expired in 1999 and my driving licence is a tattered worn out green paper from the same era. Would these be acceptable as proof of age? (Apart from my wrinkles?!!)

At last we can have a free pee at railway stations.
No more clambering over the barriers at Glasgow Central, Liverpool Lime Street or Manchester Victoria when you've no change in your pocket.
Thank you NR, TOCs or British Rail :-)
I've recently received a northern Complimentary Travel Pass and the boxes ticked on the voucher are 'adult' and 'single'. There's no expiry date or name in the 'Customer Name' field.
I was wondering what's the best way to have a day out with a single? It seems useless to me if I can't get home...
I've just stumbled across this excellent piece by Rodney Hampson of his time as Dent Station Master in the 1950s. A thoroughly enjoyable read that deserves sharing.
Enjoy his 19 page PDF full story here...
This was the condition of 142030 on the 20.00 Preston to Colne from Blackpool South last night.
Not very welcoming, although I'm not sure how long it's been like this, but it's typical of the state of these Pacers around here.
Do we know what units will be replacing these dreaded...
