Thanks for posting that, dog box.

I'm sure there are quite a few members here who knew Malcolm, and on behalf of all of them, may I offer condolences and sympathy to his family and friends, from this forum.

Chris.  Sad

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.
