Back in autumn 1987, myself & 3 pals used the handcart that Hodges & Co give chase on, but we took it to Holt & back. One of us had missed a bus home & that was his only means of getting back.
First saw the episode directly after the Queen Mother's televised funeral & nearly choked with laughter, cos I couldn't believe what I was seeing
Burnmouth for Eyemouth, the King is approaching Burnmouth Station in the Scottish Borders.

Hello All,

re TV, I remember a Marty Feldman sketch " The Loneliness of the Long Distance Golfer" where Marty, amongst other things, plays golf in the rain, hits the ball onto a moving coal train, which is headed by either an A1/A3 Pacific or a P1 2-8-2 bursting out of a two track railway tunnel ( B&W footage ), then hits the ball off the coal wagon and continues playing !

I am a retired signalman, and a number of workmates used to play golf in the early morning after the night shift, including in the rain, which did remind me of the Marty Feldman sequence above. I agree with Mark Twain " Golf is a good walk ruined "

Regards, Platypus.
