Good morning all
Time to stir these old bones and see what's up.
Are you a sort of 'first class' person?
And a non-smoker to boot? Well you know now where to stand on the platform at Formby station!

I wonder how many more local residents share this memory from Paul.
There were First Class carriages as late as the 70s. I remember the gold braid on the seats on the short journey to school.
Thanks to Kathleen @oldpicposter for the image.
An exciting find
But really disappointing to know how rare it is to find one. My last sighting was in the mid 90's on the coast of Donegal.
