"You do assure me this isn't a tilting train , don't you? - I'm not sure the tanks are tough enough for that."

Mounting the APCs on railcars is a real win-win. Not only does it slash carbon emissions by 85%, but also prevents the tracks from damaging native vegetation and causing erosion. And as soon as we develop a diesel-powered track-laying train, we'll be able to deliver an attack anywhere.

I know you have a war to go and fight, but as it's a Bank Holiday the drivers union says, " no bonus no movement "

Treadigraph went for the 18.30 London Bridge to Croydon Thameslink Service, but Hoskins managed to take his train on the wrong line. Ended up at the Woolwich Arsenal.
Expect normal service on Easter Sunday

At the end off the exercise the General watched the vehicles being loaded onto the transport. Wondered why they were covered in mud.

[old Mr Grace]You’ve all done really well…[/old Mr Grace]

A quick sample of just a very few of my favourites…

Kilty:

My last job? I was a Suez Canal Pilot. That did not last long either.
Andytug:

"HOSKINS!! You're not DJing in Ibiza! SIGNAL CORRECTLY!!"
Nutty:

You’re being rushed to the front lines and you’re travelling BR......... seriously?
Chu Chu:

Don't we need some tie-down chains? No, Boeing provided a Mechanized Carrier Attachment System. What could go wrong?
But brevity being the soul of wit as I believe Oscar Wilde once said, my favourite on this occasion was from the keyboard of Dan Gerous:

Tickets please.
Well done Dan, you are hereby banished to the Judge’s inner sanctum for the next several days and the CST is en-route to you in a little yellow BR Bedford van, disguised as a British Rail third class cheese sandwich…
