    Modern. They're not like trains like the ones you get to London. They just run in Manchester. One can be seen in the titles in Corrie! But that isn't real.

    Terrible!
    They're every 6 minutes on weekdays here.
    It's really annoying though because I only stay on one stop and it costs 50p for about 60 seconds travelling. But it's good value to go to town - 80p return.

    Very very dark comedy, I hear. Annoying, the printworks don't do showings until 9:20, and I really have too much other stuff to do tonight.

    You ever been to the dutch pancake house in st peter's square? We're going to eat there. Mmmm pancakes.

    Oh the Printworks seats are comfortable though lol.

    I've heard back from 2 unis since sending off my ucas application, leeds and manchester are both offering me BBB.

    I was gonna put leeds down as my first choice but hearing all this good stuff about manchester has made me think again. Leeds us supposed to be an excellent city for students with a great night life and its not too expensive apparantly. Is manchester better though?

    Manchester is the biggest city outside of London metro wise, is much more of a pretty city IMO, with a gorgeous skyline. Manchester has as many, if not more bands visiting than London. I love how much there is to do in Manchester, I would have applied if I didn't already live here and want to experience somewhere else.

    Also, the university has some real claim to fame, next year it will be the biggest University in Britain, with some interesting history, things like the atom model being discovered here, the first computer being built, I'm particularly impressed by the fact Alan Turing worked there.

    The guy who invented the atomic model, I forget his name, grew up in the same village as me.
