Alarm call has been achieved. Tea has been made. (Not in the oven, obviously - that's just the clock.)

Speaking of the 1970s, have a pair of InterCity 125s. I'm on one of them.

I've started uploading direct - fiddly on a phone and the mobile data signal is a bit hit and miss but it seems to be working.

Clue? I'm travelling from one seaside town to another to collect it.

I was tempted by the BX bike, but I've had a BX before with mixed results so it's not that. It has appeared on AS before, though.

In Cardiff now.

Fair point. It's not a Jaguar, in fact it's a marque I have never owned before. It apparently has XJ6 levels of legroom though, according to a Car Giant Test on Trigger's glorious Flickr stream.

The woman across from me is wearing so much perfume that when the doors open and a blast of cold air comes in, it starts raining Nina Ricci on her.

That's very kind of you sir! And I think you may have guessed it..

The seller is planning to meet me at the station, but it would be great if you were around to join in? Due to arrive at 12.53.
