  1. How about taking the wall down to your ground level and replacing it with a post and panel fence?
  2. Thanks guys. Next time I'm back I must try it.
  3. I was sat on the bog this morning reading about Nottingham in Bradshaw's railway guide. Apparently, from Mapperley Plains, according to Bradshaw, it is possible to see Lincoln Cathedral and Belvoir Castle. Is that right?
  4. I remember that track, Beekay. It was there until quite late on, into the 80s I seem to recall. How about a short line in the old Central Market in the 1950s, or have I dreamed that?
  5. One of my earliest pre-spotting memories is of climbing to the top of the concrete slopes off station pad, alongside Basford and Bulwell station, to see Prince Palatine, in blue, as it was turned on the triangle with the GC. I guess it was around 1953.
  6. 'Phoney charges', Ayup? Tell us more.
  7. It's easier to collect. Just back from an ASDA pickup, which was like clockwork. Only four items unavailable, and once you've got your slot you can amend the order any time within 6 days of the booked slot. You can also specify no substitutions.
  8. I stand corrected. I was unaware of the revival of the title, and of the South Yorkshireman. My interest in these trains ended in 1958!
  9. Sorry to be picky, but the Master Cutler never went into St Pancras. After it left the old GC route it went into Kings Cross.
  10. Any idea of the location of the fishing scenes, with Norman Rossington?
  11. I was a 'young male' c1960, and well remember being in Manning as one of the inter-sixth form society, as an HP pupil. Most uneventful, but I did end up married to an old girl, and still am, 52 years later.
  12. At the last funeral I attended they played Ed Sheeran's Supermarket Flowers. Not a dry eye in the house.
  13. So I would have been 5 or 6 at the time. Probably on my way home from Southwark. Thanks Ben.
  14. On the topic of rail crashes; anyone remember the incident at Basford North, when an engine backed into the bay platform in fog at too great a speed, and pushed a couple of carriages through the stops and down the embankment towards Northern Baths?
