Hi Ken. How are you getting on with the Gangway rubber. Our need is becoming quite urgent . Norman Aln Valley Railway.
Arrived in Kyrgyzstan this morning and now engaged in a small part of the planning of a 374 kilometre new cross border 1520 line.

Pmrc - Meatman's construct alluding to a dictatorial leadership of the L&B Trust - not a style I personally have seen any evidence of in 20+ years.
Steam Rules all the way
Another bridge job on the horizon. This time on the China / Kyrgyzstan border. Ten weeks work with good dividends. Take up end of August.
Does anybody have any diagrams of the GWR Single Cone vacuum ejector? If so it would be much appreciated.
Ive been trying to get in touch with someone from the S&CR about your website.... do you know the best person to contact?
Richard, you sound like you know more about the Stanton carriage that went to the TR than I do- I'd be delighted with any information. A friend's dad made a 16mm scale model of it, but no idea how accurate it is I can't say- apart from this picture I can't find I've never seen an image. I take it Moseley Trust picked up the bits to start their proposed rebuild? Thanks

I don't understand what part of my comment your sncf picture is referencing? Is that what Thompson wanted 1470 to look like?
I have just watched your brilliant video of the two 5Xs on Beattock and you have captured me fair and square at Harthope. I had decided that there was an outside chance that the Lockerbie pathing stop could be shunned so I went straight to Harthope. If you are interested, I'm the one stood upright, to the left of the other guy there who was further downhill and nearer to the action. Do I get an appearance fee!!
Hi Howard - many thanks for your positive feedback, and for filling me in on one of the two mystery gricers! I also thought there was a chance of the Lockerbie stop being missed, so we headed straight for Beattock. I don't think I've seen the Harthope spot so quiet before - it must have been a treat for it to be so. I'll have to check what the rules are with the PRS for a performance fee! ;) Best wishes, David.
hi, whats happened to Skippy, not seen his videos lately?
I assume you meen my mate Phil Bentley ( 981Smithy ) . He has bought a static caravan and also his son is now stock car racing so he hardly has any spare time sadly.
I'm trying (and failing!) to place the image/avatar... Help?!
Stanley Holloway in the Titfield Thunderbolt no less!
