    I remember this happened to a guard at Arpley in the 1970s. It was a long time before he could walk again. It was an awful lot longer before he could perform certain other activities, though.

    Good to see the Swanage Railway getting multiple coverage on BBC News (nationally) with their pairing of 60103 with a Pullman car that had been in its consist during the locomotive's USA tour. Now why didn't we think of that? Report about to be...
