Ah, Mr "Rotorvator" how I miss his sensible and well-reasoned proposals
I do agree his proposals for replacing the WHR with a tram were slightly over the top but there is no doubt that the tram movement is well on route.
Not on his N Wales routes they're not, unless you count the Great Orme, but that somewhat pre-dates his plan.
I'm wondering what measure you're using to conclude that Wales doesn't already warrant that description?
Hi does anybody happen to know if Prince shall be doing running in and if so when might this be?
I came across this photo in some obscure far away land web site and i just wondered if it's known ?

Yes it is, it's in a few books.
Ok cheers, not worth it staying on here then ?
I was just wondering if anyone from the FfR can confirm how long Princess is going to be on display at Paddington for? I'd like to pop up to see her but it would be helpful to know exactly what dates she will be there so that I can plan the trip!
According to the website "Princess...will be unveiled on St David's Day (March 1st), remaining on display at Paddington for six weeks"
As far as I'm aware it is scheduled to leave very early on the 14th of April and make its way to Acton for the day.
Thanks guys, should have read the FfR website article a little more carefully!
Princess arrived just before 0800 this morning (Sunday). Unveiling 1100 on Friday March 1st, St David's Day.
As a matter of interest, as Silver King was not withdrawn until 1965, and Bill Hoole retired in 1959, would it be more correct to say this was a whistle which had been carried by 60016 at one stage in its career? There is a good pic of 60016 in Coster's book in 1964 with a whistle with a finial so this FR one does not appear to be that one.
