Re: What song are you listening to?

Good heavens. Here was me remembering the Word as being all L7 and that. Regarding Mr Whittaker, the mention of his name brings to mind:

a) The Mexican Whistler (!)
b) Ozzy Osbourne claiming to have once shat in his toilet and wiped his arse on his curtains.

Re: LILLYBURN - OR LILLIEBURN - LOOKING FOR INFORMATION

To be fair, it is a wee bit obscure (not that that's a bad thing). Plus everybody's probably hungover and/or otherwise engaged. Patience, man :)

Re: Travelling from Glasgow before the Railway Age

Fascinating stuff. I note the spelling of 'Argyll Street' too :)

Not that I want to be picky, but the omnibuses didn't take twenty minutes to get to St Rollox according to the last notice; they left for the makeshift station twenty minutes before the trains were due to go.

Re: Edinburgh

Abandonment issues: Shrubhill tram depot, or a wee bit of what's left of it. Yes, trams.

Re: Travelling from Glasgow before the Railway Age

Good stuff, Anorak. There's a part of Dickens' The Uncommercial Traveller that's always stuck with me, where he describes the coaching inns in provincial England at the point where they were just about to finally keel over and die out due to the railways.
