I hope there’s better information, when I get off my train in Swansea, but everyone assumes you’re going by car to Swansea.
But what do you expect?
Very few places have had good information on how to get from the train station to the football ground. In some cases, you can use the method you do at Ipswich; the Mark 1 Eyeball. But in others, it’s impossible.
According to this report, it would appear the best way is to navigate using your iPhone.
What’s wrong with a map and compass?
Let’s suppose that you are walking one of the London canals and you’re aiming to be out for most of the day. By the time you get back, your iPhone will have exhausted its battery, so if you feel like taking a phone, why not take something with a sensible battery life, like a Nokia 6310i.
GBRf is a rail freight company in the UK and it has a shortage of motive power.
Could this be in part to what I saw last Thursday, whilst sitting outside a pub outside Thurston station in Suffolk, where in a brief period of perhaps forty minutes, three long freight trains trundled along between Felixstowe and Peterborough? I’ve done this many times before and never seen one. So as I’ve reported before a lot of heavy freight is now going by train.
So I was surprised to see that they are hiring in a 50-year-old Deltic locomotive, Royal Scots Grey, to move freight in the North East. It must make commercial sense to both companies involved. It is rather a tribute to the Deltic, but surely with better planning a few years ago, instead of scrapping these wonderful locootives, they should have been properly stored. After all one my most memorable train trips was behind a Deltic.
We sometimes decry the quality of engineering in this country. But the list of things we should be proud of keeps getting longer and the Deltic has just got itself added.
