    Seems to be a desktop platform issue. Works ok on mobile devices, but not on Chrome or Edge

    Thanks for the confirmation, doesn't work on Firefox or Edge here on any of my PCs, very strange, initially I thought it might be related to Windows 11 however it's the same on Windows 10. Working OK on my rarely used Samsung Galaxy Tablet using Firefox and Chrome, so at least I can get my daily fix!

    Edit 26/10/21: Now fixed and working as normal.

    Enjoy!

    Bachmann have announced OO9 models of the Double Fairlie locomotives (If I done it right, the video should start at Double Fairlie announcement. Edit: Doesn't seem to be working, go to 16:45 for the Double Fairlie announcement)

    A busy scene at Porthmadog Harbour Station:



    Let's hope covid allows such scenes again next season.

    TTFN,

    Generally he busiest time in 2021 was around 1615 where you had three trains arriving within the space of about 30 minutes of each other - there can't be many other places where that happens?

    Pen-y-Mount Junction in June 2019 - trains in all directions at the Past Present and Future WHR Gala. There can't be many NG stations with three platforms.....(even Porthmadog Harbour only, technically, has two)
    More of the same for the 2023 centenary of opening, hopefully.

    Ballinamore on the old C&L used to, two through, plus one bay. Douglas (IMR) could once boast four, complete with canopies. Perhaps at the smaller end of things, on the RH&DR, Hythe and New Romney still present three apiece.

    Back in the 1960s, I seem to recall there were five, three (barely used) high level terminating platforms and two low level for through working, though since the turntable was replaced, I don't think the remains of the high level (original) station can be used for timetabled services (I've a vague memory of the track to two having been lifted). The one former bay nearest the 'down' through line to Dungeness (where the 'Royal Saloon' sat on display for years) being dug out and realigned, to form a new through (island) platform. On the 'up' side, everything behind the platform seems to be undercover carriage storage nowadays.

    I have no idea if the fourth platform is ever used but it is/was labelled as such.

    Even Dinas has three platforms. One for each passenger.
