It's a bit wafty, perhaps, but not silver. I would say it was very fairly priced rather than ridiculously cheap.

No shite in Swindon station car park unless you count a grubby Alfa 156. There was a roe deer in a field just behind the Dick Lovett BMW dealership, though.

("Dick? Lovett." Snigger.)

Reading already. This Is The Age Of The Train. (Being an original HST125, the age of this particular train is about 39.)

Just spotted a black Farina Austin Cambridge estate - wow. Soz no pic, too far away and I was too slow.

...

 

 

I once parked a grubby Alfa 156 in Swindon station car park, as part of a needlessly complex car swappage plan that featured an SD1 with a reasonably creditable Marine Life Centre located in its gloveboxes.  That led on to all sorts of calamitous BL related shenanigans later on, but did at least mean that I got to hang out with Skiz and, more importantly, meet the uber glammo Frau Skizzer.

Is it a gopping Rover or some other Anglo-chode?

Re the Alfa 156, I was recalling fondly that very occasion as I passed by, Mr Breadvan.

Not a gopping Rover. Not gopping at all, in fact - but Anglo. Well, a lot of it is Anglo.

Is it lunchtime yet? Tummy says yes.

Yay! It's this train, the 11.43 out of Liverpool Street. Appears to stop everywhere, and is badged up National Express (c2c) which I thought meant buses but apparently not.

I'll watch out for someone waving red knickers. (Always a good policy, in fact.)

Could be worse Parky, you could be dressed as Jenny Agutter in Walkabout.

I'm in rural(-ish) Essex now, land of my forebears. I come from a long line of farm labourers from Tolleshunt D'Arcy, although I'm not going that far north today. I'm going to the seaside!

Basildon now. Looks a bit grim.

I would click 'like' on the Jenny pic but I've just sent Mrs Skizzer a link to this thread so she can enjoy* it on her hols, so I'd better feign uninterest.

I can see the sea! Well, Thames estuary. Photo when I get to proper seaside, shortly.
