      I did a few on the old slam door days in the 70ís, Coventry, Luton, Ipswich, Norwich comes to mine.

      The escorted walk from Coventry train station to Highfield Road was memorable in 76/77, brickes, bottles rained down all the way there and all the way back, halcyon days.
      I have supported Rangers for 49 seasons.

        Did a few back in the 80s.
        Newcastle away in 83 was the most memorable, the train wasn't fit for cattle.
        Good craic none the less

                        Did Liverpool away for the milk cup semi in 86, train got bricked in and out of edgehill, our carriage got shut for safety reasons and had to stand in the old guards van from Crewe until Euston, there were a fair few scousers on the return trip who snuck on due to them missing the last train.
