  2. Paul42 liked Big Al's post in the thread Pathfinder 2018.

    Without knowing the detail I suggest that the price reflects the cost of staging this trip that, don't forget, includes the hire of Riviera stock plus the associated loco servicing etc. It is also a special occasion that arguably should attract a...

  3. Paul42 liked Big Al's post in the thread Winter CME - 27/01/18.

    We know that the RTC offers a speculative programme that generally delivers close to what is on offer but also falls short at times. We know that you don't approve of that. We know that everyone on here also knows both those facts. Unless you...

    From the prospectus it says you can "Can I pass my shares onto my family? Yes. Members may nominate a beneficiary who can inherit their shares upon their death, but must notify us who that beneficiary is. What if someone dies without...

  5. Paul42 liked Bulleid Pacific's post in the thread 35018 British India Line.

    I think it's fair to say from the above barrage of posts that January is essentially the railway enthusiast's version of 'silly season'. Just give people a break and let 'em get on with it is what I say. If readers are having trouble dealing...

  6. Paul42 liked Jamessquared's post in the thread Bluebell Railway General Discussion.

    As you say, fraught with obstacles, and potentially you could end up building (and even worse maintaining) six miles of railway just to end up in a field three miles away from a destination of any interest. My opinion is we have to make the...

  7. Paul42 liked J Shuttleworth's post in the thread 35018 British India Line.

    Many years ago, a simple policy of "we'll tell you what we're going to do - when we've done it" was adopted at Carnforth. Given the vagaries of steam locomotive engineering and restoration, it was hardly surprising and it certainly saved...

  8. Paul42 liked torgormaig's post in the thread 35018 British India Line.

    Well after a day working on the above mentioned 60007 I come home to find the "usual suspects" are in full flight again about WCs failure to satisfy their craving for inside knowledge about their business. But nowhere have I seen WC complain...

  9. Paul42 liked flying scotsman123's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    Just an observation from an outsider, but it does seem that this (like most other subjects in this thread) is being made rather hard work of. Over on the Broadway thread (yes, there are other threads!) it's recently been announced that the...
