    It was probably just abandoned, like most of the cars there!

    The only thing really stopping 42859 from coming back to life is money. Nothing that needs doing is a big deal and can easily be accomplished if sufficient pound notes are available.

    As long as it doesn't get like the 11th August 1968. I was (nearly) there!:)

    I think you place too much importance on being a shareholder. Sorry to say, but it doesn't make you that special. Why should it specifically be addressed to shareholders? I always tread carefully here, because I am extremely grateful to the...

    every post on Nat Pres is serious. It's just that some are seriously funny and some are seriously bad.:)

    Has your deviousness blossomed since you went to Sheffield?;)

  7. Steve liked Greenway's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    I believe one of the reasons why volunteers are not quite as forthcoming now is due to legislation. This is not simply a case for heritage railways, it seems to be affecting many other walks of life. I am reliably told that people are reluctant...

    Have a look at http://orr.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0020/4907/pr08-partG_amends.pdf and Cl.2.2. The likes of NYMR, WCRC and others will have the costs underwritten by Network Rail. That's a good number of locos, for a start.

    Filming. for a feature film I'm not allowed to say more. Should be finished by the time you read this.

    Anyone who has had the pleasure of working on a BR standard 2-6-4T will know that it probably has more locker space than any other loco, certainly more than I have ever come across, not to mention the voids under the bunker I'm sure that you...

    Surely implementation of this is network change and Network Rail will pay for the fitting of this equipment to operating locos if it comes in. It is just newly registered and re-registered locos that will have to fund the costs.

    Interestingly HMRI endorsed HOPS at the HRA seminar in the same speech that he briefly talked about the WSR (and other railways!) Personally, I find it a very useful tool, not just for rostering. They now include an asset management system.

    You are right that there is an awful lot of rubbish spoken on this site and your post is a prime example. Whether you are trolling or stating your genuine opinion you are not doing it very well.
