It's a bit disconcerting when someone you know is staring at you from
the newspaper.

you have cloth seats on the subway?

teflon says:

Yep - this one looked like it had recently been refurbished too. Or perhaps just cleaned - I don't think they do that very often.

the Glasgow subway's a funny wee thing. You'd probably laugh if you saw it 'in the flesh', so to speak..

I laugh at most subway systems. Anything that isnt open 24 hours doesn't quite ever make sense to me.

But cloth seats? wow, fancy.

Most of the seats on the tube in London are cloth as well, in fact I don't ever remember seeing none cloth seats on the underground.

We don't have cloth seats here, on any of the subway lines. Too high maintenance.

Cloth seats do have the disadvantage of the "Oh-my-god-its-11.20-on-a-Saturday-night-and-what-have-I-just-sat-in?"

You're more likely to have the disadvantage of "Oh-my-god-its-11.20-on-a-Saturday-night-and-am-I-going-to-get-where-I-want-to-go-or-get-chucked-out-at-Govan".

Glaswegians are considerate. They tend to leave their rubbish on the floor.

What's really laughable is Sunday's opening times: 11am - 6pm.

What's the POINT? I love the whole 24/7 of the NYC subway system. No matter what time it is, you can ALWAYS get home.

teflon says:

It's not like it's a big system - the weekday opening is fairly reasonable, but on Sunday they might as well not bother.

has the same problem as lot of small sytems, It doesnt go to enough places to get much of the ridership that it would need. I am just totally spoiled living here.

Hey, is that aidanwarner? What's he doing in the papers?

Nope, not him - it's David Crow, deputy editor of Glasgow University Guardian. Won a shiny award.
