  1. Dan Hill liked J Shuttleworth's post in the thread 4920 Dumbleton Hall.

    Yes, one of our more entertaining days. Although the Hall was cleared right through to Mallaig, the local p-way suggested a physical check might be sensible at Banavie - and then all hell broke loose and the media had a field day! At least it...

    Is this the photo in question ?

    I recall seeing photos of it at Banavie with angle grinders being used to cut stuff back on the platform, I think Railway Mag made a big fuss of it being the furthest west a Hall had ever gone to Arasaig.

    I think you'll find the Warner's contract with WCRC may preclude a lot of commercial activity without Warner Bros consent; I understand - for example - that on main line workings 5972 was NOT allowed to run with Hogwarts Castle nameplates without...

  9. Dan Hill liked Sawdust's post in the thread LNER Beaver tail observation saloons, what's happening with them ?.
