I applaud your bravery for admitting to all that in public.
Not as brave as standing next to them...  the only floor space would be next to the sink :D
The Chiltern Slug has huge bog cubicles, to make them disabled friendly.  I I've been in there with 7 or 8 people before.

The Indians saw fit to put different sizes on my Brummie barge, so space saver it is.  Not idea if its standard or optional though.

Actually, I think I have driven one, many many moons ago.  I think the car is a bit heavy for it, as although the engine seemed torquey, it never made progress.

the 2.5 is as flat as a witch's tit, the 2.0 16v and 2.2 even flatter. Can you imagine an 8v :o

If leaking from the union to gearbox oil cooler, most likely the seal is fubar.  From memory, its a copper washer type, 2 per union.

Better that than having to share a doorway with them on the train.
I've had to share the toilet cubicle thing with other passengers in the past.  I recall one day coming back from Brum, sharing with a colourful character popping strong pain killers like smarties, to ease his back, and dulling the pain with a bottle of vodka.  I let him have the bog seat, I just stood next to him.

There are worse forms of transport, I think. The National Express coach from London Victoria coach station to Liverpool was experience  ;D
But its cheaper, guaranteed a seat, and isn't raping the tax payer of their hard earned.

Well, Rolex is a charity, so will be a balls up from start to finish.

with a real senior business person, used to being in control of international companies with an excellent track record
But you are forgetting that the UK rail industry is run for the people who run it.

FFS.....who cares any more?

If you are one of the millions using the railways everyday, you would care, especially when your fares are going up out of line with your wages, or you are a commercial concern relying on the railway network to move your goods! ::) ::) :D ;)
The fares are rising, the subsidies remain the same, and the "profits" remain consistently low.  That sounds like its a sinking ship that we should jump, as it will never improved.

And the only people using trains are commuters.  I suspect the rest count for less than 15%.

Swapped the Focus for a couple of buggies for the day.  I'm sure that amount of fun isn't legal.

Ah, I think I had a spare (used but good) tank in my garage.

Which incarnation of Flammable Garages Ltd, though?
Defo this side of "the incident"

Pretty certain I have the one off TBE, that I only swapped with the one from the Silver Bullet because that one was newer/cleaner.

But I could have already given it away, and until I get back home, can't confirm.

I've seen an 05 Range Rover L322 4.4V8 petrol with an lpg kit on it at a very good price and I'm tempted to go and have a look.  ::)

Trouble is... I know that there is no such thing as a cheap Range Rover!  ;D


Surely the Range Rover is Britain at it's best....... ::)

A Range Rover of this age is more German than British I think?  ???  :-\

The 4.4V8 is BMW.  :)
The 4.4 BMW lump is definitely not without issues, mostly around the various ways that oil and water can escape.
