Off the rails — 8 Comments

  1. *is amazed the white middle class FAT Controller hasn't yet been arrested for abusing little boys on their outing, to see the trains, from Sodoff's Children's home*.


    …and, if memory serves, he SMOKED cigars infront of children…just like Saville.

    • I don't remember whether he smoked or not, which shows how terribly impressionable I was.  Anyway, all the engines smoked too, as did all steam engines.

      Also he obviously encouraged obesity?

    • I think I read that about the shuttle before.  I knew that the British [Standard] gauge was supposed to derive from the width of the chariot [and that we drive on the right to leave our sword hand free for combat!].  There may be more than a grain of truth in the theory, but don't forget there have been many gauges over the years.

      One thing is for sure though – there will never be a non-stop rail link between Ireland and Great Britain through a tunnel!

  2. Just testing here.  My comment yesterday never appeared, so I thought I'd try again.  Or have you banned me, Gramps???

  3. "Or have you banned me, Gramps???"

    Well, there we are then.  Apparently not.  Don't know why not, though.  If this was my blog, I'd definitely ban myself from it for droning on …. and on ….. and on ……

    • No.  Of course I haven't banned anyone.  I honestly don't know what happened.  You were languishing in my Spam box from whence [!] I retrieved you.  I had to have a shower afterwards, with the shit that's in there.  I shall endeavour to track down the cause.

  4. “They use a different track gauge.”

    Heh! I'm still having to get used to the five foot…
