Don't think we've done this....

I've just returned from the West Country (Penwith since you're asking, very nice too) and whilst Last Great Western were dicking me about at Exeter I discovered a station I'd not previously been aware of...

Do any other correspondents, etc.

How, er, long, do you think you were "stopped" there? Minutes? Hours?

Do you have any recollection at all, even in dreams, of men in combat jackets leaning over you with hypodermic needles?

Rogin: not as far as I know, no, but I was in Exeter at the time. I was passing the time of day reading the local timetables. As one does.

Carstairs is the most terrifying. Beats Stuttgart for not only having trains reverse out leading you to believe you are on the wrong train, but also for the high security prison providing many passengers.

DGLH, Carstairs is a hospital for the criminally insane, not technically a prison.

My father lived in Carstairs Junction for 5 years before he died. Horrible place in the middle of one of the loveliest areas of Scotland IMO.

That's worse, isn't it?

Etruria, and Mudchute. For quite different reasons.

No doubt, Reed.

The first time I was there visiting my Dad, we were in Carnwath, which is a village near the hospital. As we got out of the car, a siren went off that was very much like an old air-raid siren in tone and volume which caused me to nearly soil myself. It was mounted on a ple and I noticed later that similar sirens were located all over the areas surrounding Carstairs Hospital. It was a test of the escape warning system which was run every week at the same time. Guess what time I would be planning to escape....

Amsterdam Centraal for two reasons: first time I saw it, I thought it was a spelling mistake. And when I see it, it means I am in Amsterdam. Yayyy.
