Nine Elms Banter - What went on?

Post by 34017 Ilfracombe on Tue May 19, 2009 8:27 pm

Nine Elms, as we all know, was one of the largest locosheds in London. Many Enginemen had to travel overnight for their early morning shift.

Nine Elms was also, the Casino of London. We played cards. We played Crib, Beenie, Solo, Chase the lady, Shoot, nominations, and of course 3 Card Brag. I can remember going up overnight for the 0540 Bournemouth, laying down on the long green bench, with my serge jacket over me, and went into a nice long sleep. Next thing I awoke choking. The bu**ers had lit a Brown cloth, to wake me up. Because they needed a 4th player.

Another knackering day ahead for me. But we got through it bounce

Well you would know Dad.. I believe you told me you travelled ECS to Waterloo and got to Nine Elms having been been up most of the night for you're shift the following day??? I'm really going to have to remember all these stories as I get older.... Wink
