  6. Why is it often nigh impossible to contact small suppliers. Surely their ordering customers are their lifeblood. Even a once a week defined time for phone answering would be helpful.

      Many also have a full time "real" job, perhaps you rang while they were at work.

  7. Can you get holiday insurance for time travel? - just wondering like.

      As you come back to the present at the same time as you left insurers might not believe you've been away.

  8. Arriva are going to be prosecuting people for fare dodging whether they have made every effort to purchase a ticket prior to travelling or not. If the ticket office is closed, and the ticket machine on the platform is not working, then it will be a case of either a fine or jail. We all should purchase our tickets prior to travelling, but if we genuinely cannot, then surely other ways should be found other than prosecution.

      I wonder what happens when travelling from a station which doesn't have a ticket machine, such as my local station?

      You need to have a look on the Royal Mail web site about importing items from abroad.

  14. Is East Coast the absolute worst post-privatisation livery? Insipid colour, zero style and successfully shows all the ripples along the sides of a Mk 4 coach. Terrible.

      I used to photograph the ECML until East Coast came along.
