      Many years ago, the IT Contractor magazine 'Freelance Informer' ran a front cover image caption competition, using old Punch cartoons. I won once with the caption "I'm Spartacus".

  6. 10 years ago today 66048 derailed at Carrbridge, fortunately no-one was seriously injured.

  7. RIP Martin Peters.

  9. My head used to swim from the perfume I smelled
    My hands kind of fumbled with her white plastic belt
    I taste her baby pink lipstick and that's when I melt
    She whispered in my ear tonight she really was mine

      One night in Bangkok makes the hard man humble.

      Comes of drinking his age in pints.  Never mind, Nanny will soon put a stop to it with minimum unit prices for alcohol.

      Shocking!  :jester:

  15. Channel 5 NOW - Railways of the Western Front

  16. The Apprentice BBC1 NOW - task is train related !

    1. Metr0Land


      Watched it on catch up.  According to Lord Sugar in the days when we had steam trains, we had two and half thousand miles of track.  Who's gonna be the first to argue with him?  I suppose it was to be expected we'd have a stock steam train whistle dubbed over a Merchant Navy which has a very distinctive flat tone  :rolleyes:

    2. Hroth


      I've not watched The Apprentice for many years, I don't get much pleasure from watching over-inflated egos getting a comeuppance.  I've no idea what the aim of last nights task was, but it might have been amusing if they had been set one of the "Great Model Railway" themes to complete...

  17. RIP Edge Hill PSB

  18. Maintenance on the overhead power lines in the area means my power is about to

  19. Last day of the Anglia 37 hauled short set - sniff.


  20. RIP Peter Fonda, so long Easy Rider.

  22. Une nuit a Paris - will be your last !

    1. truffy


      The last time that I saw a mouse was in a Parisian restaurant. It wasn't on the menu though.

  23. 12:00 - 17:00 tomorrow is not going to be good for freight.

  24. 38 years ago today - the Woodhead line shut

  25. Am I the only one who has an almost uncontrollable desire to buy an Airfix Saturn V kit today ?
