This story does not include the rock and roll excesses of the Bez tale but it is another true story. I once saw Kevin McCloud  from hit Channel 4 series "Grand Designs" at Manchester Piccadilly Station. Kevin spent several minutes studying the departure boards. I have to tell you that he looked a little confused. I wonder where he was going. I wonder if he knew where he was going. As he strolled around the recently refurbished station I imagined him saying "They've gone over budget, but I really like what they've achieved here."
