I'll be dead chuffed when it reopens.

However with slightly different punctuation.... I'll be dead. Chuffed. When it re-opens.....

The latter would be much to trainers delight. If he insists on dancing on the track at my demise, I hope he gets mown down by the first train that runs rather like William Husskison. Then he can do a deadly dance macabre with Cllr Reyna Knight.

Husskison.  Wink

William Huskisson MP 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.

No wonder then that none of our great and good seem to want to have it opened and then go to the opening!

Walking over the old railway bridge near Portbury today there were notices fixed advising of consultation relating to the T&W Act application to reopen the line. Hardly world-shattering, but encouraging nonetheless.
