Having to stand on a crowded train is the pits - wait till you see this... :roll:

wonder how they cope with a substitute bus when there's a points failure/leaves on the line/wrong kind of snow etc

I might have seen such sights on this BBC 4 program.

Some of the trains were built in Glasgow.
I can't resist a Freddo.

I'm reminded of recently being on a crowded Gourock/Glasgow train; everyone absorbed by their mobile phones, newspapers, or simply dozing off, when suddenly it was "heads-up" all-round when a wee boy excitedly screamed, "MAMMY, THERE'S A VIRGIN."


He didnae half know his areoplanes as we passed the end of the runway at Glasgow Airport!
Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.
