    Problem is if caught the culprits will most likely get away with a slap on the wrist, this is by no means an isolated case of vulnerable people being targeted by scumbags they should receive a custodial sentence

    They've long gone Chris, some of the good design engineers and fitters are still employed though many are approaching retirement age

    Wow what a popular train ... and with good reason I think.

    I've always liked steam train rides, well any train ride ... and I still have a good excuse to be a big kid - because I get to go on them with the grandchildren !!!

    But wasn't this a sight to see as thousands did try to and got the train delayed LOL!


    Dozens of steam enthusiasts disrupted the inaugural run of Flying Scotsman after its decade-long, £4.2 million refit by standing on the track to take photographs.
    Passengers said the famous locomotive came to a "shuddering stop" near St Neots, Cambridgeshire, and Virgin Trains East Coast warned that other services were being delayed by up to 15 minutes due to photographers on the track.

    The photo above is of Grumpy Gertie and she lived on the ponds of Sandon for 11 years

    Until this happened recently

    Two members of the public have offered a reward of £275,000 to catch the killers of a goose that was shot dead in the Hertfordshire village of Sandon.

    Peter Hunt, from Sussex, contacted BBC's Jeremy Vine Show to offer a £250,000 reward, before John Barker, from Cambridge, pledged £25,000.

    The white goose, known as Grumpy Gertie, was so famous in Sandon that he featured on the village's sign.

    He was found shot dead in the village pond on Sunday, with reports that Gertie was gunned down by a gang in a 4x4.

    Villagers spoke of the bird often spotted "standing guard" in a disused phone box.

    Gay Ayton, who has lived in the village for 20 years, told the Hertfordshire Mercury: "It's really shocking. A lot of the villagers are feeling very sad – even though he was cursed as sometimes you couldn't post a letter without a stick.

    "It's spineless and so irritating. We've always had a goose. He is very protective of the ducklings."

    A Whopping £275k has been offered to find killers of village's beloved goose

    Story from here
    http://travel.aol.co.uk/2016/02/27/275k-reward-offered-find-killers-goose-sandon-village/

    N.B. I've copied the story but I think Sandon is in Essex and not Hertfordshire ...

    Hi Jan!

    Don't know if it's just me but I reckon Leonardo has a strong resemblance to a young Jack Nicholson in that piccy-Think it must be the expression he's pulling...Anyone else see it? Smile

    Yes ... I think you're right Paul ... don't know if others may agree?

    Lucky all my life. I don't know why and I probably never will, but I have been a magnet for the best people that walk this earth. Maybe more accurately, they have been a magnet to me. Yeah, that is the case. I can spot a winner from a long way off. I have been married twice, the first marriage lasted over twenty years, and produced the three children. Other than Jan, my first wife is my best friend in this world. I was divorced 5 years before I met Jan, so no grief between Jan and my first wife, they are great friends. With Jan, I inherited three more kids, and now we have five grandchildren.  

    Nothing comes close to kids, and I lived with kids for forty-seven years of my life. This morning one of my grandsons, a son of one my inherited three sons, said to me "I love you granddad" that means everything to me, my life was worthwhile.

    As Graham said above ... "Pile in belt up and shut up"

    Well I guess the most important one is 'belt up' and even in this day and age you still see some mums and dads driving around with kids who are not wearing set belts affraid

    Yes ... this is so incredible to see. It begs the question 'don't they care about their children?'

    So many flout this ruling. I bet most of us have seen people driving and using a mobile phone?
    The fact is, it only takes a second with the driver not concentrating and something quite awful can happen Evil or Very Mad
