I have tried to find images or comments on this. We went on a school trip from Garnethill Convent school about 1959.

The train had its own studio and several of the pupils, myself among them, went to the studio carriage and the rest of the school saw us singing live.

Anyone have any more information? 3 of us are having a reunion in October and it would be great if I could find some info or photos. One is coming from Australia and one from France.

Any help or pointers much appreciated. Thanks.

Was first school on that train. St Gerard's Du Guvan. We wis all very excited and every pupil got up to do an audition. I started of with "She's Venus in blue jeans Mona Lisa with a pon....." "Right that's fine get loast".

Pat Kennedy who could play the accordion (whits a Cafferlik daein playin yon anyway) was given the job of entertaining us.

An that as they say "Was all folks" Nae cowboy movies, nae cartoons an nae point to the whole exercise.

Television train; they could have tooked us aw tae the Plaza fur a lot less!!!
