Scouse curls girls from Hull

Scouse curls on the Glasgow Central to Liverpool Lime Street

Scouse curls!

Scouse curls is women’s hairstyle from Liverpool where one actually leaves the curlers in for a night out!

I chose to take a train from Glasgow Central to Liverpool Lime Street on the Trans-Pennine train. I thought I’d have loads of pictures of scenic countryside, but actually, it’s pretty dull looking countryside most of the way. At Central, there were four girls together, two in MA1 bomber jackets, and the other two in hair curlers. They had to be Scouse, or visiting Liverpool. They looked really great together and I really wanted a photo of all four of them on the bench, along with all their leopard print luggage.

I asked them for a photo, but one said no before I’d even finished asking and turned her back to me. The other three were still smiling, but seemed disappointed not to have their picture taken. I think the first one must’ve thought I was begging or something.

As it turned out, we all ended up on the same train. Changing at Wigan North, we all ended up on the same train AGAIN.

By pure chance, returning from the toilet, the friend got up to go to the loo after me. When I approached their table, they said to hurry and get my camera and get my picture. I dashed back with my camera and took a few photos of these two. The rest of the passengers were quite bemused.

As I left, thanking them profusely – and a carriage wide conversation now taking place, one man opposite said, “Oi, what about my photo?” I could see the ‘no’ friend heading back up the carriage by now. I looked at my camera and shrugged my shoulders. “Sorry, just run out of film”.

They were actually from Hull. I never got the story of why they were in Glasgow. However, they ended up behind be in the taxi queue at Lime Street and I got a bit more of their story. They were visiting Liverpool for a long weekend of partying and fashion shopping.

I never got your names, but thank you.
