Whats wrong with DMUs? Its all I get FTLOG!!! (HST/43s are kinda like DMUs because it operates as an entity even though it can be split).

BTW, after drinking a bit too much, I once spent 2 hours turning on and off the Dyson and watching all the fluff fly around on the inside. I can't remember it much, but from the video my dad took (he carries it everywhere with him), it looked like I was enjoying myself! I love you, fake uni card (its a photocopy of my sister's boyfriends old uni card, I just changed the dates and photo on it though and printed it off at school. I hope they never find out.)!
