  2. The Dainton Banker liked Ploughman's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    Over the years a policy has been adopted on the NYMR that for renewals we use new rail and if not new then good condition sleepers with current fastenings with spacings of at least 26 and more if needed. Until a few years back we used to use all...

  3. 2392 liked Sawdust's post in the thread Future covered workshop and storage space (especially for carriages) ?.

    If you are designing your own overhaul facility, take note of the generous working and access space around the vehicles in the photo of the Bluebell's works in the post above. Sawdust.

  4. The Dainton Banker liked 61624's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    The problem is that it is difficult to prioritise anything for any length of time - track is needed to run trains, carriages are needed to be able to transport paying passengers and steam locos are needed to pull the trains and attract the...

    The long awaited move of the coach body of ECJS 189 from the underframe that it arrived on, to the overhauled and modified underframe took place on Thursday. Video of the move can be seen: [MEDIA]

  9. Bluenosejohn liked Monkey Magic's post in the thread ’Volunteer of the year’ award won by MHR volunteer.

    Saw this bit of news and was very impressed as the awards cover a huge range of museums and heritage sites. http://awards.museumsandheritage.com/feature/volunteer-of-the-year-award-individual-2/ Interesting that it went to a volunteer in the...

  10. Bluenosejohn liked flying scotsman123's post in the thread GWSR Cotswold festival of steam 26-28 May 2018.

    I don't know how I manage it, but once again today the Sun almost completely evaded me whenever I ventured out of the works. Still, a few more from various spots around Winchcombe, looked slightly quieter today, probably partly due to the falsely...

  11. 49010 liked 6026 King John's post in the thread GWSR Cotswold festival of steam 26-28 May 2018.

    Yes - really good day. Weather brightened up, almost every train was rammed full, beer from Goffs brewery was good, everyone seemed to be in a good mood. What's not to like? Oh well the pannier dragging that horrible DMU around, but apart from...

  12. 1020 Shireman liked flying scotsman123's post in the thread GWSR Cotswold festival of steam 26-28 May 2018.

    What an incredible first day! I didn't see a single empty compartment or seating bay until about 5pm, and we must have broken the Guinness world record for number of people squeezed into a 3-car DMU! We had a new excuse from Cheltenham for a...

  14. rule55 liked Big Al's post in the thread The Quantock Intruder: 26/05/18.

    Agree but what do you expect when three more coaches are tacked on the back for a climb out of BL of 1 in 101. It's called a self fulfilling prophesy. I recognise it's trickier later on though. By the way, did you notice how well the DBC crew...
