    Hi Folks,

    My first post of the year. I've added a huge amount of pictures to my website in 2017 (both rail and travel pictures) which can be found here. http://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/

    I've also been busy blogging in 2018. Here's on of the latest, which is a pictorial essay on the BR Pacers trains, the first ones of which will be coming off-lease later this year. After then being stalwarts of the Northern rail scene since the mid 1980's they'll soon be gone, so here's a look back at them over the years. https://paulbigland.blog/2018/01/12...for-pacer-trains-so-heres-a-pictorial-review/

    I've added various photo updates to my website from around the UK and also from India, where I was one of 26 (mostly rail industry) folks who cycled 450km across Rajasthan to raise money for the Railway Children charity. Follow the link and you'll see which galleries have new pictures in them. http://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/recent.html

    Here's another news & picture blog about all the new trains on order and the challenges brought about by over 4,000 vehicles coming off lease in the next 3 years. The Railway Magazine calculates that we'd need 52 miles of siding just to store them in. Any preserved lines got a road or two spare? https://paulbigland.blog/2018/03/28/the-new-trains-dilemma-what-to-do-with-the-old-ones/

    Oh, and just to make it more complicated, today's Heathrow Express announcement means 14 Class 332s can be added to the list!

    Yes, I've a few more to add yet. It was a crying shame the way the station was reduced in size and services transferred away. There's a real irony that nearly 30 years later Trans-Pennine services have been reintroduced!

    I've added a couple of hundred new pictures to my Zenfolio website. If you click on the link it will take you to the galleries that have been updated. The Scotrail gallery contains internal shots from a trip on the new Hitachi Class 385s https://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/recent.html
