Very entertaining little film.
I just watched it with the subtitles on. Some of the text cracked me up. Almost as if the narrative was transcribe by an oriental person.

She who must be obeyed says I am spending too much time on this forum. I love her dearly but what does she know?

 :thankyousign:

Quality bit of footage, strange how exactly 50 years on and after some clown decided to privitise them in order to deliver a better service 18 1/2 min delay by today's standards is surely the norm where as here it was supposedly totally unacceptable.

I think that clown appeared buying a magazine didn't she??

Liked the video but followed delboy by having the subtitles on. More entertaining than watching the subtitles on Sky News. The caption at 20minutes 30 seconds made me wonder what sort of hearing the captioner has?

Over-user of brackets and quotation marks.

Wondering how many pedants can dance of the head of a pin.

Speech recognition software at it’s best.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Nice modern uniforms - designed by Hardy Amies ?

Was that Denis Thatcher playing with his ammeter in between the tracks ?

Just in case no one caught it on the sub titles, It was "The new station at Houston"
