    Thanks Gav. Is that the "closed" page (i.e. need to log into FB)? I'm allergic to Facebook (too bl**dy invasive), so only "public" sites are of use.

  2. Kinghambranch replied to the thread Broadway Station Rebuild.

    Very good post, but I disagree regarding Winchcombe, the Station can never be what it was (the same design as Broadway was) as the station building was demolished ages ago. The ex-Hall Green Signal Box fits in well however and I still believe...

    The bric-a-brac shed does generate several £000s p.a. of funds for Broadway, basically out of nothing. It used to stand on the site of the station building, and was moved to the drive when the foundations went in. When it was decided to stand it...

    I understand that the shed will move to a site on Platform 1 sometime soon. I don't know how long it will be before work starts on Platform 2 waiting room and footbridge steps (but it will be directly proportional to the amount of money...

  8. Kinghambranch liked 007's post in the thread LSWR T3 563.

    On initial inspection, the inner firebox will require complete replacement. However the rest of the boiler hasn't been inspected yet so lets not jump to conclusions. When I oiled it up the other day to move it to Norden, I crawled all over it,...

    Like I've said before, try getting anything in and out of Didcot on a low-loader or even by rail (unless the situation has changed since earlier this year - if it has, then I humbly apologise).

    Just in time for Christmas the Trust has produced a rather fetching poster of the P2: https://www.p2steam.com/2017/11/22/iconic-lner-designs-inspire-prince-wales-poster/ [IMG] Foxy

    I was. The Clan website is fine! It's 77021 that has disappeared off the radar. Having never seen a Britannia with a smaller boiler (am I roughly correct?), I'm looking forward to seeing this Standard coming together, The frames are, I think,...

    Facebook says page not available. Twitter - last posting 2015. The group doesn't seem to have what I call a "proper" web page. Pity, as I'd like to renew my membership!

    I think 77021 has "fallen off the layout" at least if the lack of updates and "error 404" messages are anything to go by, unfortunately.

    As Northernsteam has has stated, we have known for a long time that we would not be able to base ourselves at the GCR. We are still in close contact with the management at the GCR, and spent some time talking to Richard Patching, of GCR senior...
