"Golden Hares Here?" refers to the Cheltenham
Gold Cup, the horse race run here in March. (Hares
also being known for their speed in March). This
was also included as a 'tongue in cheek' "Hello"
to previous readers of Kit William's "Masquerade".
The hare bells were included because of the reference
to hares. The pigeons refer to the legend in Cheltenham
that the spa waters were discovered due to local
residents noticing that a particularly healthy
flock of pigeons always drank from one place.
On investigation, the spa waters were discovered.
The pump also refers to the waters of Cheltenham
where there is a famous pump room. The ear, and
other references to ears, refer to the Government
Offices in Cheltenham (GCHQ) which is well known
as a listening post for the Intelligence Services.
The bubbles are included because there is a clock
in the shopping centre in Cheltenham which plays
"I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" (and blows
bubbles) every hour.
The roman numeral XVI appears here. All clues
on this page both the front of the train and the
station clock show no time - they all point to
the centre - as does the name of the station.
Winston is also in the middle - it is the middle
name of John Winston Lennon (the train 7005 is
the "Sir Edward Elgar", another composer).
The central word on this page is "imagination"
(also connected with John Lennon - references
to discussions of old music and dead boyhood heroes
etc.) Put "Imagination" in position
16 in the "key" message
