Two of them fancy-schmancy new DFs in Timaru, one at the head of the 'Blue and Gold Express' rugby special. The Batchelor and Bond boys used to travel up to Timaru in the school holidays on the Road Services bus and we spent some time on that overbridge, watching the signals, signalbox, wagon turntable and the passing parade of history.
