    Yes I remember that mate, thats why I mentioned it. I also remember Geoff saying buy it Brian but I know you was caught between 2 stools. Actually the lid originally came from Spain last year with t/t
    the seller had stored it for many years under cover. So think about it, Spain to Hampstead to Birmingham with no damage caused, just proves the point if original packing is kept these items can be safely
    transported, though not always possible I suppose with space at a premium. No, bit of a shame but I found it slightly awkward to use ( I am a clumsy type though). I m still enjoying listening to the gl 75
    its an original like james s with condition just as good. Cheers

    Great write-up (and pictures), chaps. The latter is *so* important in these write-ups, as it ties things all together

    Bet you're glad you made the journey, Brian, to experience Jim's excellent system and hospitality. But why didn't you drive?

    Anyway, it's also good to see you getting right into the joys of vinyl now... I knew the bug would eventually bite one day! Just need to get Tony 'indoctrinated' now [unless that's already happened and I've missed it]!

    Had a great time Marco , James is a great host . I was very well looked after and I learned a great deal about vinyl and how to set up the GL75 from him so it was well worth the journey .

    James system is superb and a total delight to listen to ( which we did well into the wee' sma ' hours )

    I looked into all the options mate .
    Return on the train = 129
    Drive to and from James place = around 90 in petrol .
    Magabus return = 50p ( no it's not a typo 50 pence )

    I can't be bothered driving any more so wasn't too keen anyway . The bus was very comfortable and had fantastic WiFi , so I watched a film both ways on my tablet thingy , and I had a double seat to myself . Took a bit longer but what the hell ...
    In total I went straight to James village ( where he picked me up at the train station ) and back to Glasgow for under 20 quid

    It was Tony who gave me the GL75 because he didn't feel confident enough to get it going . He later bought a Rega RP1 .

    There's still a fair bit to come as I haven't got to my visit to Alans ( firebottle ) place yet
    Regards

    Yes I think you should have posted it as Part1-3

    It was certainly a big weekend and we packed a lot in and as Brian has mentioned there is more to come.
