How many remember the book’s heady aroma of freshly printed ink? Ian Allan should’ve bottled it; they’d have made a fortune! Worse still, when it came to underlining the new diesels I had ‘copped’ on visits to Swindon, Derby and Crewe Works, they didn’t enter the equation because Ian Allan had published the new combined edition before the diesels were built.

So, combining both interests from old spotting days, the purpose of this page is to list as many different steam locomotive classes numbered from to which were listed in Ian Allan’s abc Locospotters Book covering the London Midland Region in After nationalisation in , the newly-formed British Railways tried out a number of liveries with a view to adopting a future standard for its express-passenger engines of Class 8 power classification dark blue and for its fleet of express-passenger locomotives with a lower tractive effort light green.

What’s a common phrase to one generation might sound foreign to the next as anyone with a teen can attest to. Yet, you’d be surprised at how many common words today didn’t even exist before Here are just a few that would stump a time-traveler. Plus-One It’s hard to believe we haven’t been referring to the guests-of-guests as “plus ones” before , isn’t it? It’s so much easier than saying what they really are: Eye Candy Though the phrase refers to gorgeous things, it does immediately conjure up a rather unsettling mental image.

Her energy, kindness and ability to make us laugh evidently have no bounds. However, Ellen is, in fact, mortal, and her 55th birthday is January 26th. The celebrations started early on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” — readers sent in virtual gifts, and Ellen played a slideshow of her unbelievably adorable baby photos. And let’s not forget the birthday cake.
