    The issue with TSO carriages is that the through access is centrally down the middle. For social distancing either a compartment Mk1 (with a side access) or a TCL type vehicle (with blocked off central through access but side doors straight into...

    The £800k loss had a double winter in it of course (a 15month year) whereas the notional £300k profit had only one - so there is a degree of being economical with the actualité, to be generous, in giving the two figures as if they were directly...
