It’s been another of those days. Parliament is in recess over Easter whilst the country burns through Brexit and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Yes, they’re humans who need time with their families and they’re entitled to a break like anyone else, but there happens to be a clock ticking that they chose to set in motion. The only reason it’s not struck midnight is because the European Union has agreed to reset it. But it won’t be to British summer-time…

Meanwhile, there’s no end to the Brexit shambles in sight. Oh, there’s plenty of fatigue and short attention spans. But this isn’t TV. You can’t change the channel ‘cos you don’t like the programme. We’re stuck with this and to paraphrase glam rocker band ‘The Sweet’ and their 1970s hit Blockbuster’s lyrics “we just haven’t got a clue what to do”…

Away from all this I’ve been ploughing on with work, editing pictures for various clients and also sorting out historical pictures in a drive to get the damned things on my website after all these years. Here’s one of them.

5106. 304032. 12.54 to Coventry. Wolverhampton. 28.7.95crop

Here’s a old slam-door Class 304 electric unit ready to work the return 12.54 from Wolverhampton to Coventry on the 28th July 1995. They were as old as I was as we both came into the world at the same time. Thankfully, I’ve outlived them. Their end came in 1996. Mine’s yet to be written!
