    Jumping into @baldbof's treat, but some good coverage from the BBC at https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-58073905.

  4. Bluenosejohn liked Vulcan Works's post in the thread West Somerset Railway General Discussion.

    I think the culture of secrecy that exists at some railways and the excuses for not being open and honest are what aggravates many railway supporters. ‘Commercial sensitivity’ is often the default excuse of weak Directors who do not want to...

  5. Bluenosejohn liked marshall5's post in the thread 7027 Thornbury Castle.

    7027 left Barry for Tyseley in August 1972 and IIRC it was by rail which would necessitate it having a tender attached for the journey. Perhaps one of the railway mags. of the time carried a photo which could confirm that it had its own tender....

  9. Bluenosejohn liked Jamessquared's post in the thread West Somerset Railway General Discussion.

    We've been here before: the hire rate of locomotives is indeed generally insufficient to cover their overhaul costs. However, the strategic risk of a loco owner wishing to charge a railway the true hire cost would be the railway in exchange...
