    Therein lies the problem. As a journalist, I would expect you to gather all the facts before posting something. That old tale of "if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything" rings true in this case.

    There are times when I just wish people would let WCRC go about what they do in as best and most appropriate manner as they can. And then we get from #8 a whole load of mutterings including by one of two folk who don't seem on this occasion to be...

    Thank you. Given that I spent most of Thursday trying to rewrite a considerable part of the December steam programme, as a result of the withdrawal of both 6233 and No.9, perhaps the previous poster should reconsider his comments (not for the...

    How can the failure of a loco based at Butterley and not Carnforth's responsibility be a black mark against them? Given the bureaucracy of getting anything changed on NR I would say that they worked wonders in getting a substitute loco on the...

  10. Spamcan81 liked Gav106's post in the thread LMS Patriot Project Updates.

    You are perfectly entitled to have your view, and it not being in favour is also fine. But there are many of us who do wish to have a national memorial loco. It has been railway tradition to have memorial locomotives and unfortunately none of...
