    Re: More Facebook drivel...

    It's true... the gap was timetabled in during BR days to allow for the proposed InterCityContinental services...

    never came to fruition and as such was never removed... now that's Birmingham for ya!

    I'm ex-railway :P I'm responsible for some pretty awful experiences

      Typical, although the same can be said for pretty much any bureucratic process in the UK.

      I to worked on the railways, to an extent. I did my school work experience on Swanage Railway, a heritage line. Was the best thing I could have chosen I think, as there really is nothing like a steam engine while standing on the footplate rushing along at 40.

        Try getting assaulted whilst going 100mph through Cheshire on the "shoplifters express" to Liverpool Lime Street...

              I certainly would be, a nice jolly conversation down the pub that would make! We would get some funny looks if people overheard us I expect.

                Most of the stories are humourous... some a a little bit sick... one is just wrong but ever so entertaining...

                depends on your mentality and reverence for the dead...

                  If you knew me then you'd know I love nothing better than a sick and inappropriate joke. I often trawl Sikipedia.
                  Part of the reason I gained the nickname 'Dr Black'. the other was alcohol related - (after two bottles of very cheap red wine mymouth was jet black)

                      Ahhh the fun i've had after a few bottles. I'll be hoping for similar antics at the Great Dorset Steam Fair in a few days. Can't beat the yokels after a few!

                        although i do enjoy a pint of mild

                          haha I'll drink most things, Cider, wine (not white) and spirits (a nice scotch can't be bettered) being my preferred. I find fizzy or overly sweet alcohol makes me feel sick before my time.

                              Indeed, gin from London, Tonic from Mumbai, Ice from Antartica. lovely. although a nice rum is not to be sniffed at.

                              After 3 pages added to this totally unrelated thread, I think it best if I go to bed.
