    Only one cab needs fitting. If you can justify 4 sets for a 3+1 car 117 & 121 combo and a set for each steam loco I don't see why justifying one set for a 4TC would be an issue? But then I think you know that Interesting that the costs of using...

    Return tender first at max 45mph will probably cause a pathing issue so reinstating the turntable in the up car park would be good. Alternatively use the TC and a crompton push-pull. :D

    It takes three to quango... Wonder what it would take to resolve all this by simply using the Bulleids on the job and run to Bo'mo'?

    Like a lot steam locos (and many of us humans) SKP lives with many ailments of minor severity. Some of these get to the point where we need to take it easy. Some will need more severe medical attention sooner or later. I'm not here to confirm or...

    But at this rate it might take 20 years for the SR to be able to use them.:Morewaitingisrequired::Yawn: On an entirely different topic some happier news is that there is a vicious rumor circulating that the end is in sight for 257 Squadron's...

    And there in lies the problem. The good residents of Wareham just wont buy into this legally correct but essentially bureaucratic NR argument that Poole is a Highway and Wareham is a foot crossing. To the man in the street (or indeed on the...

    Not really, I'm not trying to say that the Poole crossing isn't abused. I'm asking why Wareham needs to be replaced by ramps when the clearly much busier (and one would think higher risk) one at Poole doesn't? Why is the full barrier solution...

    Anyone who has seen the Bash Mash on Facebook will know that there is a level of hi-jinks, tomfoolery and mickey-taking associated with preserved railways; had the photo in question been posted there where the humorous intent would have been...

    One of the greatest features of main line or heritage Railways (and one that we lose at our peril) is the ability to laugh at ourselves. The photo was staged (on the spur of the moment) while a train waited at the up home for a down train to...

    Has it occurred to anyone that it might be a joke?

    It also affects the DMUs as the ideal Wareham link timetable to robustly interface with both the main line service and SR heritage services has the DMU arrive in the up platform and use the London end crossover to access the down sidings emerging...
