    I'm damn sure we wouldn't be talking about this thread. A thread about 35018 BIL and most (all) of the last few pages there has just been endless repetitive droning on about WCRC business practices. They're not going to change (why should they,...

  11. Victor liked torgormaig's post in the thread 35018 British India Line.
