  1. Kinghambranch replied to the thread GWSR - will they ever reach Cheltenham Spa station?.

    As an update on Cheltenham Malvern Road Shed, it would appear that at least some of the fencing, gates and fittings from the Malvern Road Shed site have been secured for preservation - by the Vale of Berkeley Railway at Sharpness. See link to...

    The thing is, this was Virgin's 'show', spotlighting their new trains, and Deltics weren't/aren't part of Virgin's ECML 'history'. FS was there to attract punters, yes, but remember that Branson was involved in getting her into the National...

    Fred, I think you may have been in the wrong place old pal, from the pics and vids I've seen there was a staggered line up. I suggest a look at Jack Boskett's website or Instagram page you might do well to calm down and retract what you've said.

    60103 looking good in the sunshine at around 0745 this morning just north of York near Poppleton. It was 3rd in the cavalcade with an HST set first and then a class 91 set following that. The 4th set was the Azuma. A cold, but sunny St George's...
