    All very well doing Oxenholme to Windermere but unless there’s a 47 on the rear it’s pointless as the stock would be then pushed back by the steam to the mainline but still facing the wrong way !!

    One of my local stations. Out of curiosity, how did you gain access to the closed island platform?

    Shareholder benefits cost nothing as they occupy seats on trains which are running anyway. Theoretically, there is lost revenue, but that assumes that said shareholders would otherwise have travelled at full fare - I think that's an unlikely scenario

    Bloody hell, we’re still bleating on about this?! Can’t we go back to bickering about diesels appearing at a Steam gala or what colour an engine should be outshopped in? James
