Price agreed - Check

Train booked - Check

Hotel booked - Check

Money lifted - Check

Insurance juggled - Check

Car actually seen before agreeing to buy - Oh....

 

Leg one of this adventure is about to get underway, as I leave work to venture home from there it will be a lift in to Glasgow Central train station. 

 

Not in the same stakes as the Megabus mission to Leafy London Suburb to collect the Rover. This should be altogether more comfortable. Updates to follow.

Destination 1 achieved.

Booked a first class ticket on the train, in the wee lounge. Stuffed my bag with about 8 packets of crisps and several cans for the drive home.

I like to get my money's worth.7fdc60839b2a3755e13693fbf12ea393.jpg

Clue one - The engine is well liked by those who enjoy running their car on the bi-products of their local fried beak, hoof and trotter concerns.

A particularly unhelpful clue to where im going in photo form, there will be a change of train to another Virgin service... But where? 0d9e925137f57e217f48ab15e081a6a6.jpg

It's one of those two and not German.

Thankfully we are blissfully unaffected by the CO2 shortage. 3c4d2dff69f153d0386d2d8c1ab7eca3.jpg

Is this a euphemism for hiding in the bog, for the whole journey, without a ticket?

My sleep last night was disturbed by a gaggle of pished ladies battling in the corridor outside my room.

We're underway for train 3 on day 2.137cc69608d3814fb58cb922d9a01976.jpg

Collection should be achieved within the hour and Dez shot not long thereafter.

On this train I've just twigged why English residential streets look "different" from Scotland.

You don't roughcast anything. Seems to be a uniquely Scottish thing covering your house in little stones.
