The Metropolitan Railway's Aspirations?
Sadly, after his signature was added to the list he has been asked FOUR times to send money.
Scam or not, it did not endear fbb to the petition and he has removed any on-line contact.
Farewell To An Old Friend
The outdated carriage made its final Northern journey from Kirkby to Manchester Victoria on Friday.
It marked the end of more than 35 years of service – clocking 300 million miles – in the north of England.
fbb always liked the Pacers. They were fun to ride, although maybe a bit bumpy for regular users; they have the best window view of any commuter train, even better for those that retained low-back seats. But they were always cold and draughty OR steamingly over-heated, the latter usually on hot summer days!
Fortunately several have been preserved.
Talking Of Old Friends
Many thanks for those who sent condolences to fbb after the passing of his sister. Her death was not unexpected but it still leaves an emotional gap after knowing her for 73 years. Prayers are important, too, for son Matthew, who has the job of handling the seemingly endless "paperwork" as well as the loss of his mother.
fbb will be leading the service at the Isle of Wight Crematorium. Date and time not yet fixed.
