Which station? If it's a Network Rail, Transpennine or GTR station I can probably help.


Alfreton, so East Midlands Trains. I found this which doesn't really make it clear. Is it just a case of being ballsy enough to leave my car in an unsecure car park?

If parking is available on private land, the terms need to be clearly displayed on signs, including charges, restrictions and possible penalties

Probably too many to be honest. They're one of my many weaknesses :lol:

First gig overseas at the weekend, and just remembered about the stupid European plugs. I have a few of the adaptor things lying round that you use to charge your phone on holiday. Will they power my pedal board, or am I gonna set myself on fire?

How much power are you pulling through? I reckon you should be good up to 10A - people run hair dryers on them.

To be honest, I know nothing about electronics. My board has 9 pedals on it. They all run at 9V, apart from my overdrive which runs at 18V. They're all powered by one of these:

which is the bet that plugs into the wall socket. No idea if that helps/makes sense.

From the manual it only pulls 2A through, which isn't much. You'll be fine with any adaptor.
