    It's kind of scary isn't it to reflect on how much better conditions were 40 years ago than now?

    Not the MPTE's fault of course, it's just the way of the world.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Got a lot of new ones on this side WW. Wonder why the fares are so dear though. They seem a tad excessive to me.
