Favourite Flanders and Swann

Flanders and Swann 1966 (wiki commons)

I was thinking about Flanders and Swann this morning, the words 'bloody January again' ringing in my ears.  It's been a while since they crossed my mind, and I wandered off into YouTube land, remembering.  Here are a few of my favourites I found.  What are yours?

'The Slow Train'.

Midsomer Norton station still exists, and is the headquarters of a Trust dedicated to restoring part of the Somerset and Dorset Railway, closed in the Beeching cuts.

Flanders and Swann made a mistake with the St Erth to St Ives branch line. Although it was slated to close in the cuts, it was reprieved. I travelled on it several times to visir my parents when they lived in Carbis Bay, one of the halts on that line.

I'd forgotten 'The Slow Train'! Thanks, Andrew!
