    I wish you could still buy a ticket from Sunilaws to Twizell! It somehow makes me think of Postman Pat. Perhaps he could have a mail train.

    I have visions of parsimonious Scots travelling in the area, and being upset at the level of fares charged by the Sassenach North Eastern Railway -- "[however many shillings and pence] fur a ticket fae Kelso tae Twizell -- yon's a swizzle !"

    Velvet Hall - fits my Postman Pat vision - I wonder who could live there? Not a parsimonious Scot, I think! Somebody who keeps cats? If only it had been called the Sunilaws, Twizell and Velvet Hall Railway! Even North America would have found it hard to beat that!!

    Well, possible American railroad names did get in on the act ! -- I love these scurrilous parodies of railway companies' initials, and it's a thing the Yanks were great at. I confess to liking the slightly blasphemous "take" in this wordplay-form, on the St. Johnsbury & Lake Champlain Railroad in New England: St. Jesus an' Late Comin'.
