BECK ENHAM was only established in Off The Rails!! The first mention of the Enhams occurred in Over The Top, where a delivery was made TO T. T. ENHAM's house (but mistakenly given to rat-eating SYD ENHAM.

Ken Sington has, I believe, been name-dropped in every story (though sometimes as Nington, Pington or Dington). Parson Sal Green and deliverymen Tony Tulse and Dudley Camden of HG Transport have also had particularly varied appearances.

I find it hard to write without creating new characters! I've introduced John ESMOND, Hillary's brother, and ENTwhistle, a nanny.

Would you believe I had an unexpected new job on Wednesday? (Probably not.)

It will be done! And I'll get Travelling Light into shape as well. These are works of genius. :)

I'm still alive!!!! :D :D :D :D

Been a bit busy recently, but it's good to know the next story is developing. I may make a contribution myself when I get time!
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.
