Railtastic trip to The National Railway Museum at York with Marcus. Staggered to see trains from the 1980s are now museum pieces....except for the ones still being used in Yorkshire that is! Highlight for me was a film from the driver's cab of a train going from Birmingham New Street to Aberystwyth....it took nearly as long as the real thing
Old Meltham boundary stone in the wall by the track to the Wills O'Nats, on the old Wakefield to Austerlands turnpike road over the Pennines to Lancashire.I cycled up to find it last year, but I hadn't noticed the carved hand. the light was fantastic up there yesterday....

RIP Dennis Healey (30th August 1917 - 3rd October 2015), who died aged 98....... Labour Chancellor with the big eyebrows, served under Harold Wilson.
BBC says: " he lampooned senior Conservative minister, Sir Geoffrey Howe, for a verbal Commons assault he likened to "being savaged by a dead sheep", and later described his new parliamentary home in the House of lords after 1992 as "the home of the living dead".
