  1. Try collecting records, thats even worse for late night impulse purchasing. And although often less the price of a 16t mineral wagon it can soon add up as does the beer/wine that caused the late night in the first place.
  2. Perhaps a bit too much white paint used for the water feature at the front, but the use of split wooden lolly sticks to make the headgear is very effective.
  3. If you have a free slot in your busy weekend you might want to see a film in Trafalgar Square for free. We are off to Mary Poppins tomorrow afternoon. Also if your on Hampstead Heath the fun fair is on this weekend. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/lets-do-london-back-to-the-big-screen-34161255523
  4. Yes it is, I grabbed the photo of Wikipedia and the caption stated Penzance.
  5. Perhaps you could put a model of the HST in Intercity/Aquafresh toothpaste livery in the window. Seriously though as others have said a very kind offer.
  6. Just working my way through this edition. Really enjoyed the Manchester Victoria/Exchange article as it used to be my regular haunt in the early 80's. Its clear now what I used to take for granted was in fact a fairly special location. I only saw the hive of activity on Platform 11 filling the newspaper trains once after a much delayed Merrymaker trip to Scotland and now regret not going back. The newspaper trains from Manchester would make a great article if not already been done.
  7. Hopefully being named after the electronic dance group featuring Dave Ball of Soft Cell.
  8. Have to agree, my dad also agrees and knew it well. I was brought up for 7 years in Middleton and used walk across the embankment trackbed to school (Moorclose) everyday.
  9. Found this in Google Maps on the Bath Road. Just south of the Concrete Factory. https://www.google.com/maps/@51.4792139,-0.5092155,3a,75y,37.86h,82.96t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sVb2qzv9mcNHeLjAvXEF8vA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192 Hopefully of some interest. Its not a area I know but thought a quick look.
  10. They need to use a naked Pendolino next week, all that vinyl has to slow it down.
  11. Before you leave the train please remember to check for all personal belongings. Also please remove any discarded Sausage Oatcakes, black pudding, pies and brown Kendal Mint Cake. Stocks of Bru are available in the station.
  12. Not sure, but if they didn't a second bash next week is already booked. Suspect if they did they will pull that. https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/service/gb-nr:S00619/2021-06-24/detailed
  13. A day off for me but sat on my arse doing the same. However also spinning some actual records as well.
  14. Found I couldn't click onto the next section on Opentrain times after the Carlisle section but found a link in the map section. Might be useful for others. https://www.opentraintimes.com/maps/signalling/carstairs
