Re: General Terminus Quay

The last iron ore trains ran in 1979 when the deep water facility at Hunterston was opened, so they did run beneath the opened M8 for some years. More dates are here: http://www.railbrit.co.uk/chronology/dates.php?coname=General%20Terminus The lines were still in situ in 1987 but I think were cleare...

Yup - I'm pretty sure that's what Sartre wanted to say but couldn't find the words to express it as eloquently as you have.

Re: Strike!

On the other hand, I’m sick to the back teeth of asking postmen to stop walking across my flower beds to get to my front door and I’m seriously fed up with getting “sorry you were out” cards through my door when I'm in just because they can’t be bothered to bring the relevant package with them from ...

Re: Not really interesting facts about yourself

I loathe this ongoing 80s revival thing. The 80s were chaos, Thatcherism, violent racism, casual homophobia, and Stock, Aitken and Waterman. Good riddance to bad rubbish. (NB The Cure, Sonic Youth and everything else good stands apart from that generally lousy decade, cos they were alright. It is, ...

Re: Dialect words and usage

Its amazing the difference in phrases/expressions even in the short journey along the M8 to west lothian. I remeber asking for a slice of toast at work and there was an "Outsider" (the fat peice of bread at each end of the pre-cut loaf) sitting in the tray. The girl looked at me as if i'd...

Re: sue them senseless

ridicularity* *Yes that is a real word. Now go away. It's not a proper real word though is it? More a sort of a sort of mongrel, bastard, made up, half real word, like my own pet hate "disrespecting". On the subject of dictionaries may I respectfully refer you to the Concise Oxford versio...

Re: Dalmarnock Station Refurbishment Project Photographs

I am on further reflection not to sorry to see the existing proposal scrapped, it was, like the last crossrail scheme, far too unambitious. If Scotland as a whole was to do GARL/Crossrail properly then it should be done as a strategic scheme that would benefit the whole of the country. Using old ro...

Re: Recipes

I buy fruit and veg from Tesco or Asda as most of the wee shops which stocked such things have disappeared. There are a few left but some have poor selection and others are sometimes overpriced. The result is I don't go to them very often. That reminds me of an exchange I had in a fruit and veg sho...

Re: Glasgow Railway Termini

All factually correct of course Alycidon, but I've always felt that the decision to maintain Central rather than St. Enoch was as much a political one, as it was a purely practical one Sorry to disagree Sir Roger but the following facts stand up to scrutiny, I am assuming that the decision to close...

Re: Glasgow Railway Termini

Neither the old map or Google Earth offer any suggestions as to why trains from St Enoch could not join up with the Cathcart Circle lines. They seem to be right next to each other! It is all to do with History Anorak, the Cathcart Circle was strictly Caledonian Railway territory, whereas the line t...

Re: Newbie on here!

Seeing as we're having a coming out party - I used to play one of these in a succession of rubbish indie bands in the late 80s/ early 90s.
