THE CLAGGING CUP AUDIENCE COMPETITION.
The clear winner of the 'What does the music mean?' competition was Sue Burden of Braintree, who not only correctly explained all eleven songs but also gave their title. She wins the 50 Visions DVDs. Well done to her.
Several entrants were disqualified for using the cards to give their own scores for the locos. Doh.
THE WINNER: 56040
CLAGGING CUP SPECIAL AWARD: D5217

This is where the special effects budget went - on Maxey's ice-cream salesman jacket. Luckily he bought it for half-price in a sale. Photo: Ian Dobson

It's not called The Clagging Cup for nothing.
