To add to the off topic part of the thread Stansted Airport gets my vote for being ice cold, well it was the last time I was there (thankfully there is usually a new warm train there), and for the on topic bit I canít add anything.....

Hi all,

Thanks.  I have a hat - I just take it off 10 secs before they throw to me!

Cheers

Ben A.

Phew, I had visions of Revolution Trains disappearing in a mist of Australian Flu.  :D


Watch it, Kirky  :P

On my mistimed visit to the UK I was tucked up in the nearest Wetherspoon's watching poor Ben freezing on Colchester platform. I am a member of the British rail old boys forum and this week Colchester had been among the nominees for the coldest platforms in the UK.
The old station at Thornaby gets my vote, along with Sunderland.

Sunderland definitely.

Well, all I can say is he didn't look that smart at Warley when I spoke to him.

How very dare you sir! I'll have you know our Revolution Trains black shirts are the height of sartorial elegance!

Shall I post the Mexicans! :D

Going back off topic (which I normally frown upon) my vote for coldest platform is no. 2 at Edinburgh Waverley.

Well it was pretty chilly when I said goodbye to my Edinburgh-based g/f some years ago before boarding my train back to York... because of the total absence of warmth in her farewell, I got on the train knowing that I would never see her again. "It's not you it's me" sprang to my (possibly deluded) mind, and still does.

 :'(

Well over her now tho!!

 :)


Anyway.

Let's get Ben that hat. A man can never have too many hats.

Reply#10-the next station north from Colchester, Manningtree, is the coldest in the UK-on an embankment, no shelter from wind in any direction, and today the Easterly wind will be blowing right along the river......... :)

Right, so, having all agreed we need to crowdfund Ben a new hat, the next appeal is to crowdfund some therapy for GroupC !!!

I'm beyond help. If you just want to do the crowdfunding anyway though I'm sure I'll find a use for the cash.

Reporting today from Lincoln, but at least he's indoors in the warm. It's Ben Brown's turn in the cold, having drawn the short straw labelled 'Angel of the North'.  :D

Cheers,

Chris (not snowed in, but the dogs and I agreed it wasn't the day for a walk...)
