From The Extra

Tweet suggests Pollokshaws West is the name of Kim Kardashian’s new baby!

She (?) joins Blake Street, Langley Green, Lea Hall, Lea Green, the wise Seer Green, Elizabeth Line (remember her?), Clifton Down, Allen West, Hamilton West, the recently ordained Cannon Street, and the next Kardashian child who we may expect to be called Pollokshields West.

There's lot's in London - Colin Dale, Ken Nington, Stan More, Mary Lebone, Warren Street and Russell Square to name but a few!

PS - Off to La belle France "par Eurostar" - missing Community Rail in the City plus last few days of "real" GW (Great Western) HST (High Speed Train) working. Hope the former goes well and look forward to seeing pics in due course.
