Ah, Newton junction where the Cathcart circle branched off the main line, that used to be real bandit country. Freightliner trains from Gushetfaulds used to be stopped at Cambuslang, the station before Newton and advised the route was clear, ignore any signal that isn't green. The locals would try to stop the train and break into the containers

Or do I go all upmarket with the LGV Mediterranee Marseille-Avignon route.


I'd vote Cathcart Circle, simply because the 314s are/were my favourite electric trains! I was on the middle leg of the farewell tour for them in December 2019; what a happy day out that was.

Morning all,

The sun is out but it is a bit cooler than of late.

Good news for me as I'm off to the garden centre to pick up some paving slabs, planters and some more bee/butterfly etc friendly plants.

I want to try and attract a few more pollinators into the garden. Good for the environment and interesting subjects for me to try and photograph

I'm with you I prefer the Cathcart line over the TGV as I have a few high speed routes but there's now another contender the BR Class 52

How times change! Back in the day Friday & Saturday nights out on the raz meant everything








Nowadays it's totally different, I've just had a 30 litre sack of dried 6X farmyard manure delivered & I'm over the moon & happy as Larry, I'd need 10 big sacks of horse poop for the equivalent of the 6 times the strength of the 30 litre sack

Evening all, a tired day today, drove to London yesterday to see Green Day at the Olympic stadium, it took 8 hrs to get there, driving through London was awful.

Once the gig was done, a five hour drive back to Devon, got in at 05:00 this morning.

Crazy.. of course, but it was well worth the trip.

Glad that you enjoyed it but looks like my idea of Hell! I much prefer a stroll along a leafy glade or on a deserted beach. Being in a crowded Maccy Dee's for some on the road fuel did for me yesterday. Five minutes in there had me well stressed out!

I'd taken my lad up the A1M to collect his campervan after getting a replacement roof. I have come to the conclusion that driving is becoming less of a pleasure!
