  1. I think the problem is due to the video box on some screen resolution is too big for the side panel. It is overlapping onto the posts page and thus throws the page down to the bottom

  10. I had the same problem with my Fuji Finepix S9500. I got round it by pre focussing by pressing in the shutter gently at the spot where the loco was due to be. I now have a Canon!
  11. The Sunday WCML milk train left Carlisle at 3.25pm. Weekdays and Saturdays it left much later in the evening and ran down the WCML headed for Mitre Bridge (Unigate) and South Acton (Express Dairies) and used to depart later at either 8:10pm or 9:30pm depending on the day. Another milk train that left Carlisle and ran down the S&C via Appleby before picking up the Midland Mainline and running to Cricklewood. According to the 1954 WTT, the S&C train used to depart Carlisle at 5pm on weekdays. There were 2 trains on Sundays departing at 3:25pm and the second at 10:15pm Info from Facebook Cumbrian Railways page
