This line once ran all the way to Stratford on Avon, which is now a terminus. But if they ever get to Honeybourne, which they should do, they'll be able to tap into the national network..
Bill Phillips: I didn't know that. I don't know what future plans they have. It took a long time to get to Broadway

What a joy that they have finally made it from Cheltenham racecourseto Broadway. Did you take in a show Bill? Oh the old ones are the best.
Bill Phillips: There's no business like show business
boy did this train conductor make a wrong turn somewhere....ha ha

another example of Names being borrowed.
Bill Phillips: Daisy is the railcar that features in Thomas the Tank Engine.
The comfort of the trains in Holland reminded me of the old BR days - before the new companies tried to emulate the airlines!
Bill Phillips: I don't know who designs train seats but they are very uncomfortable. I used to like the old corridor trains with nice big seats
I would love to take a ride on this beauty, Bill. Lucky you!
Bill Phillips: Ted loved it as we were sat right behind the driver and he could see ahead too
It is a very well turned out DMU., I am glad you are introducing Ted to trains, one can never start them too early smile
Bill Phillips: He lkwd his visit. Joseph likes trains and we hope to the him sometime
it's a nice looking train Bill i like your point of view...petersmile
Bill Phillips: They were a good workhorse I believe
i had to look about on the internet before i could make the connection, Bill. i like this angle on the train.
Bill Phillips: Well done Ayush smile

They have a certain charm...well, for a railcar. I was going to make a silly joke about Broadway, New York, but I'm too hot for that.
Bill Phillips: It has been done. Ted liked being able to sit right behind the driver
