Has anyone else been watching Trainspotting Live on BBC 4? It's so geeky but so compelling. I shouldn't like it but they are just so very enthusiastic. I'm even thinking to go outside and watch the trains going past my house.

Do I need to just pull myself together or are other people feeling swayed by the trainspotty joy?

It's on again in half an hour... But it's the LAST episode!

The flying Scotsman has been through locally a few ties recently..... The public love it!

Only if you have an anorak to wear.

It takes me back to when I was small and listened to my dad's LP of train noises over and over.

You could say I'm... chuffed.

MumOnTheRun Yay! I think I would be excited now if I saw that.

BigTrouble I've got a pac-a-mac for festivals in a cupboard somewhere. That's gotta be close enough.

I'm watching Michael Portillo and Trains on BBC2 at the moment. Don't know if it's his lovely voice or the trains that I love most. I've not seen Trainspotting, might have to watch on catchup. Enjoy!

Gadfly That's a terrible joke!

What do you call a train with hayfever?

Achoo-choo train

gadfly90 Wed 13-Jul-16 20:05:41

EasterRobin Your joke was worse. Clearly you need... training.

EasterRobin Wed 13-Jul-16 20:06:29

Gadfly Yours made you seem loco

gadfly90 Wed 13-Jul-16 20:08:46

EasterRobin I assure you my locomotion is fine. I just have unusual carriage.

EasterRobin Wed 13-Jul-16 20:12:45

Gadfly Is that the problem? I assumed you were wearing platforms.

EasterRobin Wed 13-Jul-16 20:15:28

Marylou2 Ooh, the BBC must be having some sort of train-fest. I will watch the Michael Portillo one on catch-up.

gadfly90 Wed 13-Jul-16 20:18:19

EasterRobin I don't need platforms; I can do points.

EasterRobin Wed 13-Jul-16 20:23:02

Gadfly That's a good one-liner; like a monorail.

gadfly90 Wed 13-Jul-16 20:26:29

EasterRobin I'm an engine-eous crafter of puns.

EasterRobin Wed 13-Jul-16 20:30:49

Gadfly It seems like you keep getting side-tracked.

gadfly90 Wed 13-Jul-16 20:31:27

EasterRobin Ooh, slipping a bit. Are you... running out of steam?

EasterRobin Wed 13-Jul-16 20:37:28

Gadfly Me slipping? You're so slow you're almost station-ary.

gadfly90 Wed 13-Jul-16 20:42:07

EasterRobin This is hardly slow. It's a same-day return.

EasterRobin Wed 13-Jul-16 20:49:41

Gadfly I think this thread's been derailed.

gadfly90 Wed 13-Jul-16 20:51:38

EasterRobin It's dieselly done.

We were so excited to see our wedding venue and one of the firemen from our wedding train. Don't think I'm going to take up train spotting though!

Gadfly Now you've really crossed the line.
