Moving On & Letting Go


After six years on the transport committee I am leaving to join the environment committee. My place will be taken by Andrew Boff.

Transport was always my special interest, no doubt inspired by my parents who bought me The London Game for my 7th birthday. I was the only boy in my school with a map of London Underground on my bedroom wall, and in North Yorkshire that was quite unusual.

I have really enjoyed the transport brief but it's time to move on and let go...

Roger - are you telling us that the London Underground actually existed BEFORE you were seven???

Hard to believe...

The Jubilee Line has been built since then.

"The Jubilee Line has been built since then."

Well, would Jubilee-v it!

I'm old enough to remember much of the Underground as it was in the 'fifties, and recall the building and opening of the then-innovative Victoria Line.

It's a good resource, and has been for a long time...

Please, Morris is old enough to remember when they had a man with a red flag walking in front of the Central Line trains!
