  1. To carry the large amount of parcels, mail, luggage and other items
  2. Only in one direction though. It would be far more interesting and exciting if they had somehow come up with a reverse slip coach that attached itself to the express!
  3. Has anyone else received this email? Dear Sir/Madam, It is with deep regret that we have to return your full payment as we cannot complete the IQA flask wagon due to some technical issues. If we fix the issues then we will have it up for sale again. We hope that you re-order. Kind Regards Michael Revell Research Manager KR Models

  9. Not sure what your definition of a mass transit system is, but something with 121 million passenger journeys a year sounds pretty mass to me...
  10. Resurrecting this, found one of mine at Weymouth. Formation of BSK, SK, BSK, GUV, TPO, TPO, BG
  11. I was thinking exactly the same thing Royal Oak! Not that I have done it either!
  12. The bigger problem will be the loading times at Woking and Guildford in particular. Haslemere and Petersfield in the peaks produce good loads as well, all trying to squeeze through those end doors.
  13. The 442s previously covered off-peak workings on the Portsmouth direct and were taken off because of the frequent stops, long station dwells and not particularly great acceleration from what I remember. The standard "fast" stopping pattern at that time was Waterloo, Woking, Guildford, Haslemere, Petersfield, Havant, Southsea and Harbour. The current fast pattern has all of those and adds Godalming as well. Be interesting to see how well they perform this time!
  14. OK I have told you more than once that I was not inside the railway boundary. I explained I was a former railwayman and policeman so know the difference, and yet you continue to assert that I was on the wrong side of the fence. Lumping me in with the halfwits who trespassed for Flying Scotsman is ridiculous. I don't know what else I have to do to prove this to you, or why I should even have to? The footpath is configured in a way that the style is indented which allows you to stand outside the fence but in a position that lets you take a clear picture. I think this is quite common at many foot crossings.
  15. OMG - it says on the original post and also on the caption on my own website - Treleigh! Do you want a grid reference or something?
