    I'd agree with that, 25080 made it to Wadebridge though August 29th 1978 with the MLST's Wadebridge Wanderer tour, last loco hauled train to Wadebridge according to the Article in Traction I have in front of me.

    Denied a much wanted sunset shot at Queen Adelaide, but at least the showers and hail had passed over! 35018 on the approach to Ely and the rest of her journey under the wires to Lynn. Congrats to WCRC for running this in memory of a great...

    When it boils down to malign influences and falsehoods. A certain Yorkshire person, who claims to have frequent access to inside reliable information / sources is a champion scribe at practising this black art. The Yorkshire refugee's famed...

    Watched this yesterday in driving rain in a flooded field. As 35018 stormed through 4 hours late I realised how much of a debt of gratitude we owe to all at West Coast. The footplate staff and support crew deserve medals for what must have been a...

    Agree with @68923. Everyone involved on 35018 yesterday must have been absolutely exhausted at the end of the day. Well done to the crew for reducing a 270 minute deficit from Hellifield to a 163 minutes at Ely, helped no doubt by NR...

    Indeed though there have been sterling efforts in that regard of late. All the running lines and pointwork through all of the stations has been renewed in recent times, and about 60% of the plain line from Sheffield Park to Horsted Keynes - which...

  12. Matt37401 liked Greenway's post in the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    The problem, as far as Yorkshireman is concerned, is that he has people on ignore - many are frequent posters in this thread - therefore he does not get to see the full picture thus missing some of the more salient posts and can only reply to...

    Lifted from a facebook post where a gentleman has stated that"I was at a meeting yesterday which was addressed by John Cameron. He announced that No 9 has had a 14 month extension to its Boiler certificate." Fingers crossed that this applies for...
