I'm on a train...

...and you know what that means.

Just a short hop. No photo yet because it's London and therefore probably terrorism to take photos on the train.

More in a bit. Got to get on to Dayinsure now.

Lancia Gamma? If so, as well as dayinsure I recommend a bottle of brandy and several packets of cigarettes.(It doesn't matter if you don't smoke, you will soon start)

Did you buy a ticket that granted you permission to sit 'in' the train as opposed to on it?

 

What factor is it that determines whether we travel on or in an enclosed vehicle?

Magic. Car insurance boughted on the train between Lewisham and Blackheath - one stop.

Will do proper insurance later - it's usually a bit of a performance as the car won't live at my house. Also it might catch fire or something this evening.

Nearly.

The pedantry factor. The Germans have it too, and the French. Dunno about the Italians. Yet.

I've been driving it for a bit. It hasn't broken down yet, although the trick is not to leave it with the battery connected and the indicators are very slow.
