On Friday It Rained At Luton Airport ...
... inside the terminal building!
It's Probably A Photoshop Fake ...
... but it would be super spiffing if it were genuine!
You'll Miss It If You Blink
Within hours of this announcement from the Rail Delivery Group (ATOC as was) the internet was incendiary with venom.
But within 48 hours of the announcement came a volte-face, a U-turn - a massive back-down.
The UK WILL remain part of Interrail.
fbb has never availed himself of this ticket ...
... but it seems good value. You are allowed to travel from you country of origin and back (so cannot use it as a Rover in the UK) thereafter it is valid throughout Europe. All supplements (as on TGV for example) are extra but if you like rail travel and are willing to slum it on the less speedy routes it seems a real bargain.
Check the Interrail web site before jumping to conclusions!
And Finally ...
All; sorts of advertising drivel drops into fbb's inbox leaving him to wrestle with whether to invest in property in Marbella or snap up a bargain pack of vegetable Viagra. But at least one of his deep-seated fears can now be allayed.
The thought that fbb mansions and, more importantly, the model railway might be consumed by yet another East Devon infestation of termites causes the old man to lose sleep and sit at the back door, blunderbus at the ready, intent on splatting any termite that dares to creep into the yard.
But his anguish is now relieved by the advertisement. Sigh!
fbb Sanity Review
Now that the bulk of the work is done (and operating OK) on the GoTimetable Sheffield updates for 1st September, fbb is hopeful of returning to a more stable blogging regime, as least until a mid September holidays intrudes.
So tomorrow we ask the big question again, "Is this really the way to run a bus service?"
