That brought a broad grin to my face, Dorian. Does anyone 
remember a story called "A Subway Called Moebious" (I've 
definitely spelled that wrong). its where an underground rail system 
has accidentally formed a m, a moeb, a mo, one of those strips 
and trains go missing. Can anyone help with author -- and spelling?
I've definitely caught myself asking Hathaway for a bus now and 
then. When I worked in Holland and was homesick I used to wish a 
brown and cream number 75 would appear and take me home for 
the night. That's a bit like the Night Bus in those popular books by 
she who is not as good as DWJ.
