  2. 30854 liked Forestpines's post in the thread Heritage Line Loco Power Requirements.

    There certainly were developments in film in the 70s which made it both faster, less grainy (for the same speed) and cheaper; particularly in colour film, although I am sure similar advances applied to black and white. (I just looked up the...

    That genie's gonna be well and truly knackered by the time us lot are done! :D I'd opt for a slightly leftfield choice and get it to erase the UTA from history ...... pass the lamp please!

  4. 30854 liked paulhitch's post in the thread Channel 4 Programme.

    Currently, across on BBC 1, the same 8p.m. Wednesday slot is occupied by something called "Animals Behaving Badly"! The impetus given by Channel 4 to these four projects, the financial contribution and the peak hour screening seem all the more...

  5. 30854 liked Jamessquared's post in the thread Channel 4 Programme.

    I'm not surprised at that price. 3360 (the wheelchair accessible LCDR 3rd on the Bluebell) cost at least £50,000, and that involved modifying an existing underframe rather than building a completely new one, plus a somewhat less ornate interior....

  6. 30854 liked Mark Thompson's post in the thread Channel 4 Programme.

    Ah, that's the great thing about reality shows- theyre dirt cheap to make, don't have to pay Equity Scale to the contributors, especially if they're animals, the public wants what the public gets, etc.... Or do they? Thankfully with C4 they did...

  7. 30854 liked Jamessquared's post in the thread 1014 County of Glamorgan.

    Having volunteers from one railway riding trains on a second and handing out leaflets would be down to the host railway to allow. I suppose the loaning organisation could insist on it as a clause in the hire agreement, but it would have to be...

  8. 30854 liked S.A.C. Martin's post in the thread 1014 County of Glamorgan.

    I think it's a case that we have to separate the enthusiast and the realist from one another. I'm under no illusions: railway preservation has to adapt and evolve to survive. That is continuous - change is a fact of life. I personally feel...

    @neildimmer Any chance please of including the odd photo of cab interiors/backhead fittings for any of the sets for each class, where these still exist?

  10. 30854 liked neildimmer's post in the thread W.Worsdell D20 in B.R. era.

    The NER Class R (later, LNER Class D20) was a class of 4-4-0 steam locomotive, designed by Wilson Worsdell for the North Eastern Railway. They passed to the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923. In 1936, some were rebuilt with...
