    Fifty-five years separate the two photographs. The top image I took in July 1965 when 45212 relieved 72007 with 1M32, a Glasgow-Morecambe working. Time flies, believe me...

    89001 on the move yesterday: https://twitter.com/hullcity14/status/1321419431436832768/photo/1

    Does anyone know the reason for the headboard? I assume some kind of in-joke about electrical resistance.

    For the record, I wouldn't be totally opposed to the outsourcing of our railways to the Borg. At the very least you'd get some sort of coherent overall vision of how everything should work.

    A liberal interpretation of 60mph?

    Hard to judge, but if I had been asked to estimate the speed, I'd not have put it as over 60. IMHO when a train passes through a platform it always seems faster than it is due to it's proximity to the platform edge.

    I wonder if this move is still going ahead as it has just been announced that West Yorkshire is going into Tier 3 lockdown restrictions on Monday 2nd November. Not sure how it works with people going into a restricted area from a very distant location.

    I can’t see it’s an issue, the support crew will be returning home to tier three areas. As for the WC crew, I believe transport workers are exempt

    Isn't almost everything on NatPres controversial for some people?

    The Borg would also enact the rail operators' dream - annihilation of all passengers, allowing a smooth-running operation!
