Anti Social Behaviour on the Newcastle-Carlisle Line

Brian Bennett and the Vieux Carré Jazzmen were snapped 'entertaining' passengers on the Newcastle to Carlisle train during the summer. Banjo-strumming Brian had the effrontery to perform in front of a poster banning anti-social behaviour! What are our railways coming to that such criminal acts are performed on public transport - I bet he didn't even pay his fare.
Anyone who feels strongly enough to make a citizens arrest - and we hope there are those amongst us who do - can do so tonight at the Corner House in Heaton where Brian and his gang - sorry band - aka the Vieux Carré Jazzmen will be re-creating the crime.
8:45 pm is when the action replay commences and we hope that justice will be seen to be done. If the train robbers got 30 years then...
Banjos on trains, whatever next?
Lance.

Lance - you forgot to mention the Tuba. Surely equal to the banjo?
