of course but the LM stopper brought to mind one of the buses you sometimes see in films where the locals have their chickens and produce with them more so than VTWC services do lolThe NRCoC apply equally to LM and VTWC so it doesn't matter whose service would have been used.
Funnily enough, last night I was reading about Francis Buckland (a 19th century figure) who turned up at St Pancras seeking tickets for himself and his pet monkey. After long consideration and study of the regulations the booking clerk classified the monkey as a dog [for ticketing purposes], at which point Buckland produced a tortoise from his pocket.Over the long history of railways in this country I'm sure that most if not all species of animal native to this land (and some that aren't) will have been conveyed or been in a train at some point.

Doesn't Michael Gove go First?My neighbours duck has outgrown her back garden, a friend who said he would keep it in a huge garden in weighbridge Would have taken it if he could get a friend to pick him up. He couldn't.
