Re: Views from your office window

I work from a number of offices, so at least get a change of view on a regular basis. This morning I could see the Campsies, with some snow on them still. This afternoon, McCormacks Music on Bath Street. Sometimes I get to have a view of the sewage works at Shieldhall.......smell leaves a lot to be ...

Re: One for the railway heads

If you're taking Brigit's post as any kind of criticism of something you've said, R, then there's no need to. It was meant in a light-hearted fashion, and should be taken that way. It's nice to keep related material together, though, and whilst, as you say, it's all transport, equally this site is ...

Re: One for the railway heads

Buses today > .....and your point is? .. and Brigit's point is, that there's a bus thread and train threads, and there was a bus discussion going on on a Railway one. I believe strict demarcation lines are preserved in the transport-fan world. Wow. Transport fan etiquitte, now that is a new one. It...

Re: Swedgers

Thanks for the memories guys :) Space Dust, Golfballs and many more. What about strawberry lips? I liked strawberry bon bons and cinamin balls. Zoom ice lollies were good and jubilees were just the business. I have a very early memory of a sweet that had a surprise in it. I thought it might have be...

Re: One for the railway heads

Drifting off topic, but where I work in Dumbarton is next door to the First Bus Garage, this depot must have the oldest collection of buses in the country, S,T, and X registrations are the norm. I'm sure some of the bus companies round about Motherwell beat that. Coakley specialise in fourth hand e...

Re: Old Glasgow Hospitals

Never will forget the "ear nose and throat" at the bottom of Elmbank St/ St Vincent St. Was flat on my back in the place and watched "Foinavon" win the Grand National on a ward TV. Did that move to Florence St in the Gorbals or were there two places ? Two different places. The c...

One of the worst trains ever invented, its basically a leyland national bus body on train bogies, as the train back bouced along the track, it felt like it was going to leave the rails. 142 Pacer (aka Nodding Donkey) err no bogies, the underframe is based on a freight wagon design used as per the V...

Re: Western SMT Bus Company

RDR, I'm sure the lowline buses (those with a sidewalk on the top deck) of SMT services date back beyond that. I remember them on Red Buses from Clydebank to Glasgow (I think the Waterloo Street Depot) before I left Glasgow for Australia and that was in 1960. I also remember that, on the lower deck...
