    I’ve been told they’re a little bit more tasty when you take the silencer’s off.

    Any operational reason why Tangmere was rostered to come off the stock and go into the depot at Carnforth for water instead of using a tanker in the U&DGL?

    I waited for over an hour just outside Carnforth to get this video, was more than a bit annoyed to find that it had no audio, so I have added some royalty free music, aptly named My train's a comin'...
