Just been thinkiny about the times I have spent travelling up and down the East Coast in the late 90's-early 2000's, and thr interestint experiences and laughs I have had on the railways it mostly centred around the Smokers Carriage 1. Coming back from Kings Cross, there was a group on who were on there way to Edinburgh, they were performers, gave us an impromptu performance, they sang and told jokes 2. Again from Kings Cross during the 6 Nations, a load of Scots and English fans going up to Murrayfield for a Calcutta Cup Game, we organised a quiz, England v Scotland, with teams being all English or Scottish 3. Coming home from Sheffield, a group of Wednesday Fans were on there way to Newcastle, a few of us Sunderland fans had a drink with them, a sing off and swapped merchandise 4. Going down to Manchester Airport in 2005, I was watching a film on my laptop, a nice old couple got on at Darlington, the old boy said to me 'that is a nice dvd player' as I was watching a film, he had never seen a laptop before and surprised him further when I later connected to the Internet, my mobile at the time also doubled as a dial up modem and proceeded to let him have a quick crash course in the internet and let him have a little go as he had only seen his son do it on a PC in the past and genuinely did not know what a laptop was. Any other interesting tales from you guys?
