What does Coach L have on it that Coach K doesn't have... Wink

Not a seagull, so far as I can make out. It's tickled thetrout though. Is it the couple engaged in a knee-trembler?

Well coach L has a toilet window, but coach K (being, I suspect, a TRFB (Trailer Restaurant First Buffet (Mark 3 coach type)) with a storeroom vice toilet) doesn't.

Although I think you're pedantry is toward the lack of a grey '1st Class' sticker on K.  Wink

Did I get the location right?  Tongue

Given the lack of a toilet, let's hope it's not 'Brief Encounters of the Turd Kind'

In Bordeaux around October 1974, I saw "Recontres du Troisi^me Type" which was a bit ironic. All the English text was subtitled into French, except the French bits which had been subtitled into English in the original. (Such as <<Ecoutez-moi, t^te de merde>>

On a bus in London today.. Can't believe I've not noticed it before but there is this sign (or similar wording).. "Do not talk to or obscure the driver's vision while the bus is moving"... So how exactly would someone talk to the driver's vision?  Roll Eyes

Obviously I recognised it as Taunton straight away - but I didn't want to show off by naming it.  Tongue

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

But what if you took a train here from London to catch a bus service that starts here?

No thanks for you then? Grin
