A bit of fun

Post by 35005CP on Thu Jun 24, 2010 11:01 pm

I thought I would start a new topic for a bit of fun.
Loco Nicknames.
I have a few Bulleid Nicknames, but I am going to leave one especially for Nick.

34007 - Wadebridge (Waddlebridge & Chard)
34016 - Bodmin (Oddbin)

35001 What a racket

34090 Sir Useless Missenden

34109 no nickname, though its appearance always triggered a song in which "Mallory" rhymed with "Lavatory"

34010 no nickname, though when I was a temporary porter in the mid-60's we always spelled it Sidmuff.

Jellystone (though I think Yogi Bear came after steam had left the main line).

Believe she was given it due to the number of steam leaks that plagued the loco until recently. The guy's at the MHR certainly refer to her as Chard or The Chinese Laundry.

I know the MHR guys pretty well and I never heard that. Mind you it has been a few years since I was a Volunteer down there.

A new one I have just heard is 35028 - Clank Line
