Train travel too expensive? Perhaps not compared to the car…

Posted on 20 January 2009 in London, Transport (6 comments)

Whilst I was up north over Christmas, I had one of those inevitable “cost of transport” discussions. This conversation was on the depreciation in value of cars. The result was that the annual depreciation value of their car was roughly £1,000. So if they bought their car - not a new car incidentally - left it on the drive for twelve months, and then sold it, they’d be around £1,000 out of pocket. If they left it on for two years, they’d be £2,000 out of pocket. And so on.

(Not) To Salford

Posted on 14 January 2009 in BBC, Work (1 comment)

It was back in 2004 that the BBC first announced its plans to move some departments to the North, thus reducing jobs and money spent in London. It’s well known that part of the move, Sport, Childrens, Five Live and a slice of New Media would move from London.

Ditching the Bendy Buses - Transport for London consults

Posted on 6 January 2009 in London, Transport (6 comments)

As you might know if you’re in London, three London bus routes are about to be converted from bendy buses to a mixture of single deckers and double deckers. And I was very interested to come across two PDFs published by Transport for London regarding the conversions.

Using milk&more

Posted on 6 January 2009 in Shopping (No comments)

So you decide you want to get milk delivered to your doorstep. Like how it used to be in the good old days. How do you go about it then?

Glass bottles on the doorstep - getting a milkman

Posted on 5 January 2009 in Shopping (5 comments)

Ah yes, the milkman. Glass bottles, foil tops and electric milk floats silently trawling the neighbourhood.
