  1. So how much does it cost to knot together two ends of a telephone cable ?
  2. Interesting ! .......... in September '83 Scarboro' seems to have been using an 08.
  3. Just a thought ( careful now ! ) - that's an unusual-looking point lever ....... might help tie down an area if anyone can suss out its origin.
  4. The roadvan should have a brake wheel - and four other wheels underneath ............ must be getting 'soon' now !
  5. There's now a railway preservation scheme at both ends of the bridge ........ could they get together and emulate the Great Central with a reunification project ? ........................................................................................ maybe not !
  6. Shouldn't there be very large inverted commas round the word "life" when talking about a judicial sentence ........ nobody actually gets locked up for life nowadays, whatever they've done ! ( and they seem to get spat back out into society after a couple of years anyway )
  7. None of these guys boating the canals on the telly ever seem to take the vessel back !
  8. If a train had come along at the 'wrong' moment and serious loss of life had occurred the relevant charges would have been far more serious than mere motoring and drugs offences.
  9. .... then charged him with every offence they could think of - except anything relating to endangering the public or trespass on a railway or ............
  10. Ditto the trams in Kolkatta - or is it Calcutta ? ................... but you can always have one standard for trams and another standard for real trains.
  11. But is she a 'locomotive' or a 'railmotor' ....... into which category, I don't think anyone's mentioned Drummond's 'Bug'. Has anyone mentioned "Judy" & "Alfred" by the way ? ........ though I don't think they would win the prize.
  12. That logic's somewhat awry as it would only fit D3159 ( withdrawn 9/67, cut 4/68 ) ....D2407 wasn't withdrawn until January '69 and cut August '70. The Spring '62 Loco Shed Book lists D2407 as allocated to Lincoln and D3159 to Immingham so somewhere in that neck of the woods is more likely.
  13. Looks like those bars are designed to keep the guard firmly in his box rather than to support the glazing !
  14. Standard gauge ? ............ perhaps a visit to SpecSavers is called or !
