    You could see if other locos that ran extensively on ovoids had a similar issue … Tom

    [ATTACH] [ATTACH] Happy to have been of service. A couple more. I’m not sure if these trains will run next year, the 2023 timetables are yet to appear and the catering business changes hands in the New Year. It’s been superb, a very hard act to...

    Very good, but I still think I preferred it when it had steam engines 50 odd years ago. W. G. Bagnall 2453 of 1932.[ATTACH]

  8. Fred Kerr liked S.A.C. Martin's post in the thread Sir Nigel Gresley - The L.N.E.R.’s First C.M.E..

    So - and maybe I am being unfair here (please tell me your thoughts if you do think this), but... I am loathe to place Chapelon, Porta, etc ahead of Gresley as materially he contributed by far more to locomotive and rolling stock design in this...

    Different jobs though. But we've said this so many times before. The CMEs job is not to primarily design stuff but to ensure that other people design the right stuff.

  14. The Dainton Banker liked 30567's post in the thread Loco 76017.

    Is that literally true? Is there really no form of contract between the owner and the railway which specifies the agreement including notice periods, the basis of the storage v usage equation etc? Apologies for my ignorance, I should have...
