    Exeter City Women 2019/20 Season

    And while Leigh may not have a tram service it does have a "guided bus-way" from Salford (I know....we had some work on it when it was being built a few years back! That "lovely" grey surfacing on all of the multi-user paths running alongside was all our doing :p )

    Time for a new train line through the south west

    Incidentally I still recall that day (21 Feb 2015) when, leaving the ground after the dismal 1-3 defeat by the Scum I heard the distinctive sound of a Bulleid Spam Can and I emerged from the Jungle Path just in time to see 34067 Tangmere bursting out of Blackboy Tunnel. Just a shame I didn't...

    Time for a new train line through the south west

    I believe that they also weren't allowed to depart Central unless there was a clear run through into Plats 3 & 4 (the old "Southern" ones prior to the 1980s remodelling of ESD) in case they "ran away" down the bank. Incidentally PC Rail do a Exeter Central signalling simulator, covering the main...

    Time for a new train line through the south west

    They were also used for change locomotives on the services ex Waterloo, en route to or from Exmouth Junction shed. Most express services had a loco change at Central (or "Queen Street" as it was back in the good old days). Certainly for the Merchant Navies that were forbidden on most of the...

    You forgot to add the hapless Local Government Secretary, Robert "Baldrick" - the man with the cunning plan. He seems to have been hauled out for more than his fair share of daily conferences.

    UK Lockdown

    I've heard a rumour that some of the Brave Boys of Brexit in what remains of the ERG are lobbying hard for an easing of the social distancing rules. They want them reduced from 2 metres to 6 feet 0 inches.

    At least "Our Ben" is still trying to do his bit holding this current bunch of incompetents to some degree of scrutiny. (y)

    Not to mention Exewebs No1, original Toryboy. Perhaps he'll be charging back into the fray on his blue unicorn once the schools start up again and he can use their computers once more?

    UK Lockdown

    To go back to Jinxy's delightfully "first world" problem re disposal of garden waste from the grounds of his palatial estate one might, of course, make reference to the ten whole years of savage "austerity", a fair part of it aimed at local government which has been left barely able to even...
