Here's one on the telly just now. Classic stuff....

"Stay with me, stay with me, 'cause tonight you're going to stay with me. Stay with me, stay with me, 'cause tonight you're going to stay with me."

Early 70s.


Great song. Got it on my phone. Those were the days when Stewart was a genius. Then he found he could make money from stuff like Hot Legs!

It's slow and expensive but was surprised how busy it was when I use it last November. I predict there will be new housing developments at stops like Shawfair and that is where the future profits will come from, commuters only going a couple of stops.

 

Around 2007 Midlothian Council and various developers were talking about a huge number of new houses at Shawfair (IIRC it was 3,000 or 5,000 with schools etc - essentially a new town). It got as far as celebratory meals (at which I got a wee whizz around the site in a helicopter) and then the developers temporarily pulled out due to the crash. You can see it's ready to go - park and ride, railway, restaurant, office buildings - just a matter of when.

I thought I'd rarely use it, but been on it twice into Edinburgh (from Eskbank) and will continue to use it at weekends. Also looking to head down to the Borders on it too - something we would never have done in the car. Wife got it back from Edinburgh one night and said it was packed. Think its popularity will only increase.
