Perhaps we should have a thread for "what loco names get turned into by predictive text"?
7029 Clunk Castle.
I challenge you to find a shot of a 92220 hauled Pines not on the S&D.
That is easy. Bath Green Park station on the ex Midland Railway. S & D started at Bath Junction.
Or anywhere between Broadstone and Bournemouth
I would imagine that it would be quite difficult to find a photo of 92220 on The Pines Express anywhere between Stockton and Darlington
NO IT DIDN'T!
What's with all the shouting?
So you'd like to argue with the maps and gradient profiles in Mr Ivo Peters books.
Quite right. It started at Alderbury Junction
But surely the railway that started at Bath, or Alderbury Junction or anywhere between Broadstone and Bournemouth is the S&DJR whereas the S&D is the Stockton & Darlington
Mr Peters might be great at writing books and the knowledge of his local knowledge might be great for the south west. But the S&D started at Shildon and finished at Stockton - its never shut, trains still run along most of the route today and its even been on a banknote!
Is that righting books that had fallen over?
Must be... (was a typo)... one of those Alt+Tab moments at work again!
Separate names with a comma.
