The 8 and the 12, the latter taking a circuitous route via Daubhill, Little Hulton, Walkden, Roe Green and Worsley taking a scheduled 55minutes against the rather tightly timed 38 minutes of the more direct 8. Quite apart from the fascinating stuff we saw and rode on the way up, across and back down again, the Stockport and Manchester Crossleys made a great impression, and so did the great variety of operators working into Manchester, but I remember being especially taken by those lovely Salford Daimlers with their straight staircases, destination-winder trunnions and the no-nonsense, upright Metro-Cammell bodies. To have lasted so long with such rough treatment these wonderfully characterful vehicles must have been as solidly-built as they looked—or were the fitters kept busy? I bet someone knows! I read that Salford always put their newest buses on the 15, which ran to Piccadilly, to impress their neighbours “across the river”. This has now been superseded by Shudehill Bus Station, which is actually in Manchester, and the whole area around Victoria Bridge Street is being redeveloped. And yes, I agree about “Arndale”! On the radiator subject I only ever remember the radiator was far forward and was informed at the time it was because of the longer engine. My first encounter with the forward entrance Leylands was on the 73 from Whitefield to Victoria, a pleasure to drive. Your epic trip from Reading to Grimsby via Salford sounds worthy of an article, describing route, rolling stock and how long it took!

It was a spotter’s paradise, and I wish I could have gone there more often, but as the journey involved catching a train from Leeds and changing stations at Manchester, my mother had a morbid fear that her small boy could get lost somewhere along the way. It never dawned on me that she had another, more tangible reason, like ‘Mother Love’, for example, but since she offered no other explanation, her refusal seemed very unfair.
Didn’t she realise how important this was to me? But the answer was an emphatic ‘No, no, no! A few weeks later I met the doyen of young train spotters called Bonzo. Aged thirteen, he was a veritable professor on railways, who taught me all I needed to know about the Stanier ‘Black 5’ two-cylinder s with Belpaire fireboxes, tapered boilers and outside Walschaerts valve gear; the 3-cylinder express variant ‘Jubilee’ class and rebuilt ‘Royal Scots’, and the 4-cylinder ‘Princess Royal’ and ‘Coronation’ class Pacifics.
The ‘Coronations’ included the ex-streamlined locos which had been stripped of their casing in , yet instantly identifiable by their bevelled smokebox tops. The LMS hierarchy was keen to have a crack at the record and upon completion of they invited the press for a special run from London Euston to Crewe on June 29th In order to get the best performance out of the loco a section of the WCML’s maximum speed limit was raised for the attempt, but it wasn’t until the special train got perilously close to Crewe that the LNER record was eventually beaten – the LMS claimed a peak of mph recorded on the chart of the loco’s speed-recorder.

Ibotenic acid , a prodrug to muscimol found in A. Muscarine binds with muscarinic acetylcholine receptors leading to the excitation of neurons bearing these receptors. The levels of muscarine in Amanita muscaria are minute when compared with other poisonous fungi  such as Inocybe erubescens , the small white Clitocybe species C. The level of muscarine in A. Muscimol is the product of the decarboxylation usually by drying of ibotenic acid. Muscimol and ibotenic acid were discovered in the mid th century.

Also there may be photos about showing our Norman carrying the baton for the Haslingden and Helmshore Band. It would be really great if we can find any photos. When we cover the potato famine I intend to present a talk covering Victorian Haslingden, and perhaps its most famous Irishman, Michael Davitt. Now to the purpose of this note. I am preparing an itinerary for our next caravan trip up north. During the course of this I came upon a place name of Haslingden in the far west of Queensland a few miles north east of Mt Isa.
Further investigation has revealed that it is a district or locality in the county of Rochedale. County in this context is not like an English County but more of a local government area. The area around Mt Isa is rich in minerals particularly copper, lead, zinc and silver. But out where this parish of Haslingden is there is only many thousands of square miles of cattle properties.
The ground is mainly sandstone, basalt and Siltstone. Where did the area get its names from?

On a cold winter evening, men in dinner jackets and women in evening dresses sip strawberry champagne on a crowded railway platform. At any moment Hercule Poirot might toddle along the platform and pat his moustache. Mais non, mon ami. The speed for this particular evening, however, was to be more stately, as we trundled along the East Lancashire Railway, a heritage line up the Irwell valley. As the big black engine brooded, pistons poised for action, and the jazzmen launched Chattanooga Choo Choo, Noel Hartley, our driver for the evening, reflected on the enduring nostalgia for steam trains.
My team of 27 lads have worked blood, sweat and tears. Led by mayors and mayoresses with glittering chains of office, we eventually boarded the train there was a red mat on the platform in lieu of a red carpet. It was an unhurried evening, with the five-course meal — including baked lobster pots and haunch of venison — served at extended stops along the route.

In the latest incident a year-old Briton suffered at least three stab wounds when he was attacked on the holiday island on Friday night.
The bleeding man was driven to a police station in San Antonio in a white Range Rover pursued by another car. He was taken to hospital on the island with stab wounds to his arms and leg but was later discharged. The same man was admitted to the same hospital within 24 hours with injuries to his face, apparently the victim of a second assault, according to media reports from Ibiza.
He has been arrested on suspicion of possessing forged documents. The violence may be linked to another incident in San Antonio on June 26 when a year-old British man was chased into a pizzeria by a gang of four men in a car. Two of the men are said to have got out of the car and stabbed the man several times. He had to undergo surgery for stab wounds to his leg, arm and face.
Ibiza is a mecca for drug dealers seeking to supply party-goers who flock to the party island. Up until Liverpool drug dealers were known to dominate the market before rivals, including from Manchester, moved in. Pictures show the pair having the time of their lives in Ibiza where they met another drug dealer and became involved in planning a huge ecstasy deal when they returned home. Like us on Facebook.
By the time of this view, the vehicle had been relegated to training duties. The view is of particular interest in that both fleet names appear, in Tilling style, on the side.

Crewe station looking NE and showing the six converging railway routes Crewe station was the first station to have its own adjacent railway hotel: The Crewe Arms, built in , and still in use. It was the also first to have completely independent rail lines built around it to ease traffic congestion. The station opened on 4 July on the Grand Junction Railway.
The station was built in the township of Crewe , which formed part of the ancient parish of Barthomley. The township later became a civil parish in its own right, and, later still, was renamed Crewe Green to avoid confusion with the town of Crewe, which was adjacent to it. The station was at the point where the line crossed the turnpike road linking the Trent and Mersey and the Shropshire Union Canals.
