    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.

    Does anybody have any diagrams of the GWR Single Cone vacuum ejector? If so it would be much appreciated.

    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.
