Basildon

Submarines

There was a French diesel-electric loco referred to as the 'submarine' because of its shape. Built in 1957 it remained in service until 1988 and was the first diesel-electric loco to have the famous blue livery typical of many subsequent machines.

Last night's dinner:




 
 
 
Brown Trout from Loch Neagh in Northern Ireland, baked potato and peas.

Cost per head: £7.00

Fish was from Fantoosh, Great Western Road, Glasgow.

Spent the evening in a couple of pubs in Basildon, Essex.

I like Essex people.

They're extremely uncritical and very polite.
