There has been much discussion about this on uk.railway going back to the
time he was charged. How does one actually steal 4 locos plus other
rollingstock? You can't exactly fence them down at the local pub.
Interesting that his name was Barry Daly. Here's something I posted to
uk.railway at the time.
Terry: 'Ere, Arfur, what the 'ell is this?
Arthur: Terrance, my son, this is a top of the range class 47.
Terry: A what?
Arthur: A diesel locomotive, Terrance. Got it from my cousin in Crewe.
Terry: Souds a bit iffy to me, Arfur.
Arthur: Relax, it's kosher. There's another one on the way, but the van
broke down on the M1. It'll be here tomorrow. I'll put them in the
yard as soon as I get rid of that old Morris. Mind you, we might
have to move the flagpole....
Terry: And what are those things?
Arthur: Catfish wagons. Just what your average punter needs. Said he got a
job lot which is why they were so cheap.
Terry: How are we going to fit this all in the lockup?
Arthur: We can put some down the back, and you can look after the rest at
Terry: You are right out of order, I'm not having those at my pad. They
don't half reek. Put them down the Winchester.
Arthur: Dave is already looking after the 31s for me.
Terry: The what?
Arthur: The 31s. Nice little runabouts. Faster than any plod car.
Terry: How much did you pay for all this?
Arthur: I beat him down to a hundred grand, but we can make at least a
monkey on each. We'll sell the catfish wagons down the estate as
spare rooms. These Mk 2s we can set up as fast food restaurants.
How does Daley's Diner sound?
Terry: You're mad. Chisholm will be onto you in a flash.
Arthur: Don't you worry, my son. I'll say I'm just minding them for Dick
