    sounds like a dodgy pair of pox doctors ,

    This is the Night Mail crossing the Border,
    Bringing the cheque and the postal order,

    Letters for the rich, letters for the poor,
    The shop at the corner, the girl next door.

    Pulling up Beatcock, a steady climb:
    The gradient's against her, but she's on time.
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    I can imagine a dominatrix called Miss Beatcock - not sure what that says about me...

    I'll publish the answers when I think everyone who wants to has had a go. I'm surprised you didn't know the Nottingham & Ind Coope ones,
    The A4 LNER class seems to be causing problems. Maybe it's just a London name, but as a schoolboy it's what they were called, I don't recall anyone ever calling them A4s,
    I used to do a pub quiz. The most memorable win was when the late Mrs Aqualung managed to name all of the Waltons from that horrible TV show! Goodnight LC!

    A4 Pacific's is what every TV programme refers to them. Not sure what previous name they may have had. Pacific's was the name as your title they were A4's. So A4 was part of the name.
