went on the train to brum today, i sat wistfully of the 19th century platform, remembering train journeys of my childhood.
along comes a brand new loco, spotlessly clean, carpets on the floor, and plenty of empty seats.

then the train moved on, almost silently, even tho it was a diesel, and i was so disappointed there was no clickety clack from the rails

If you want "Clickety Click" then you will need to go to a Preserved railway such as "The Great Central" - Leicester to Loughborough or "The Severn Valley Railway". Modern rail travel is very efficient though!

You wanna try a South Eastern train grainger, grubby...sticky floor...no empty seats, that's proper disappointing.
Although you do get a sort of clickety clack, cos the clumsy drivers put flats on the tyres, so yer journey has a clack, clack, clack the whole fekkin way.
Come back B.R. all is forgiven
