Re: Long way around the barn!
For some odd reason, that I've not quite got to the bottom of, I've got in the habit of taking my railway bardic with me when I go away. It means I can find the toilet in one of three authentic signalling colours (or white) without turning on lights and waking TOH. The red option might make it a bit hooker like though.
Mines the anorack with the Ian Allen stock list in it, and a flask of weak lemon drink.
