My day in the Comfy polo.

We will start at Chester as the rest is non comfy.

Got on the train showed me papers n said i was allowed to sit on the drivers side. So sat in n was shown what all 3 dials do on the chair. Ended up horizontal fully leg room for about an hr until Manchester.

15 mins in the sidings while we changed ends and i sat in the crew seat until Oxford road and it was problably the most comfy crew seat ever.

At Warrington we saw a few photters and spotters as normal since a Steam Train was following us. Not realising but i had my picture taken through the window when i was half asleep and then when i stepped off to see how the doors work. So anyone who taken a 15 year old boy on an ATW 175 at Warrington Quay then please don't post it anywhere as i was still half asleep.

Left Llandudno and then someone jumped out to the breaks went on and it wern't all flowers. The "Extream Lazy mans" button was very interesting but we won't go into that for the job sake.

Finally back to Chester where i left the Polo, Spearmint for half an hr then went onto a 158 where it started to get dark. Took me 13 mins to get comfy and it was a mixture of the clip board lamp feet on the dash to the right a lil so i don't trip in the emergency brake and the heater on half and the window open a tad. For the rest of the 2 hrs it was a blend of lights on and off until it was perfect.

Oh thanks To the friendly staff for a great day if you do see this.



Anyone find a better seat than these then tell me.

Yeah the emergency brake was very much in the way on the cabin side so you can't exactly put ya feet up as such. But on the drivers it's nicely tucked up in the dark. WOuldn't like to push it at 90mph though :p
