    Chris: Yes I did.
    Did you notice that we've just missed the 175th anniversary of railways as we know them?

    Yes David I did know.
    I was on the phone to my Brother in Stockport, he was telling me about the big celebrations they held.

    It must be on the web, so I will check that out for sure.

    Apparently, they ran Duke of Gloucester up to the Manchester area and poured a bucket of holy water on her. (I trust it was treated with proper softening agents)
