    I was planning to be there too but traffic around the town centre was gridlocked. You can see some of it crawling in the opening scene at the bridge. About time they finished those pesky roadworks.

    Wonder if they had a problem with the 47.

    There seems to be an ongoing intermittent issue with some WCRC operated trains not showing up in RTT. But apart from that I don't think RTC ever use the SD set of coaches do they? There is another set at Southall they normally use.

    That's a shame, yes it took us a while from Costa at Taplow to get there and that was only a few hundred yards, couldn't see what the hold up was as turned off before we got there.

    Thank you for that, might try it next time, have done every angle at Warnham! Shame the station has no character anymore, when I went there with my Dad as a child I remember the old level crossing gates and signal box.

    Roadworks a few hundred yards further along the A4. New relief road roundabout/ temporary traffic lights. Months of chaos, often combined with more t/lights where the side road goes under the railway. Locals know a route to bypass most of it, coming out near the bridge and another on the other side so if you ever go back, let me know and I will tell you the route.

    In the good old days the AA/RAC would put up temporary diversion signs.

    It's better than that now, if you've got a Sat Nav linked to Traffic Master it will find an alternative for you.

    What are division signs. My team Plymouth Argyle are in the second divison but thought of them in the context of roads.
