    [ATTACH] Another hazy day for photography. The top one was taken at Duncowfold, running a few minutes down, whilst the bottom image was shot as 35018 was crawling by Hackthorpe as if running on single yellows. Having said that, the proceeding...

    In life, you get some people who like to say " I'm a director of 8 companies, I'm a big player, ignoring the fact that of that 8, 6 are no longer trading, but dormant, one only scrapes by because of outside funding through another company, and...

  4. Platform 3 replied to the thread SVR General Discussion.

    My wife and I took our 14 month old on the 'Flyer' today. It was uncomfortably hot, particularly this afternoon, but I'm not going blame the SVR for that! As I said a couple of weeks ago I am somewhat anxious about the Covid situation and...

  5. jnc liked Monkey Magic's post in the thread S&D Railway Trust and Washford Eviction Notice.

    It is a strange situation where someone would welcome less custom and less income for a railway. I am not sure any sane person would embrace this as business strategy. It is becoming an act of dogmatic belief requiring ever more perverse and...

  9. Andy Moody replied to the thread West Somerset Railway Operations.

    Thanks for that Roger. Also nice to see that the Minehead Dunster section has been relaid with CWR, From those pictures of the P Way gang with the STOP sign in the distance, It looks as if the Minehead Blue Anchor section is under a T3 Absolute...

  10. black5 liked J Shuttleworth's post in the thread Dalesman 2020.
