    Manifestly not. Tornado, P2, a certain pair of Black 5's West Shed, SNG, Clan Line, Aviemore are just a few examples of highly professional engineering, without any caveat required. Preservation or otherwise. You can X-Ray a whole Trent XWB if...

    Sorry I didn’t make myself clear there. Yes the inspector was ‘independent’ but they were engaged by, and reported to, the manufacturer, not the client. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Perhaps they should have used an independent inspector, or at least had one examine the results obtained by the manufacturer?

    I wanted to give a huge shoutout to the Bluebell for their recently updated Volunteer page (https://www.bluebell-railway.com/volunteer-at-bluebell-railway/) - it is fantastically clear about all the opportunities to volunteer at the railway...

    The book is now being printed. The excitement is building. I am confirming a few details with the publisher and will hopefully be able to share the front and back covers later today.

    The last Pendle Dalesman of the season, no reason to change my plans so off to Chapel Lane at Hoghton. It was a proper autumnal morning, condensation was dripping from the car, the sky was filled with a thin layer of high, white cloud through...

    Yes he certainly is dismissive, it’s my one bugbear with VT though, all the others manage to give you a rough idea which VT seem unable to do although all the other operators do. If you have to travel to board the tour it makes it difficult to...
