This day in history: Bashing 15th sept 1984

Into September and being a lad of no means by no means, I had no cash or interest to splice open the wallet for tours to the last Skeggies or what TF else.

Now I was into 5th year at school and had a new group of pals by in large IIRC: train spotting was a bit uncool, but I had a lot of bashing left in me to get out, which I did in 1985. It was a time when I started to stumble in life having been done well in the "o" levels. I have been up and down with hedukashun and jobs ever since. I should have taken up some sport : this is what a 15-17 year old really needs! Don't give up locos, but go play footie before a trip to the shed.

Also socially speaking, egalitarianism you learn as a basher gets you no where in life! Far better to be a snob or an inverted version there of.

On this day in history, a saturday in 1984, the only thing that dropped was 37104, probably boiler intact but at least a vagrant and not relocated syphon so a good line in the book!

Solid 37 bashing though, but depsite a whole 13 hours out, the book has a note:

219.68 miles logged behind them.

Unlike deltics, fifties or sulzer type 4 trash, it was a hard life getting mileage up on syphons!

Still with the stupid fester at Helensburgh "no where" upper due to trains passing at cardross or the like: 30 less miles.. No view and the shop was maybe shut down by this time. Station laid flat this year too.
