  1. It moved to the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway last year, just don't ask me when exactly.
  2. BBC are saying the driver died unfortunately
  3. Nice photos but it does illustrate the problem "limited numbers", its going to be a tough winter for preserved railways, on the plus side it might mean we get a bit more winter steam as they try to keep cash coming in.
  4. It's not whether they run trains or not that's the key to survival, its whether they get bums on seats or not, early indications from some railways is that advance ticket sales are poor and open tourist attractions are reporting 25-30% of normal footfall.
  5. Never mind that, did you get the number of the Pacer?
  6. And a third, Marmite is the work of Satan
  7. If you look at what Nemesis are doing to mk3s for Smithy they look amazing and look sufficiently oldy worldy to pass muster with most of the public. Most of the passengers on preserved railways want a nice train journey on something that looks old, most don't really care as long as its clean and comfortable and has somewhere they can fill one end and empty the other. I reckon mk1s and well looked after pre nationalisation stock are still the future realistically.
  8. Go with rule 1 - its your layout, run what you want to.
  9. This can't be good, me posting relevant and almost intelligent questions

      Please clarify the nature of the alleged relevant and almost intelligent questions.

      Isn't this one of the signs of the apocalypse? 

  10. So I've been trawling the internet looking for reference photos of Gresley non-corridor stock and came accross this interesting example here. I appears to be a Gresley CL that has had all the beading removed, does anyone have any more information on this before I do something drastic like model it?
  11. To be honest I reckon mk1s will be gone from the mainline in 10 years because the ORR are wanting plug doors/CDL and retention tanks and are becoming less keen on issuing derogations, I reckon mk2s & mk3s will be the standard on railtours before long. I think we will be seeing mk1s on preserved railways for many years to come though.
  12. That may be one to keep an eye on with what Han Mattcock has just said in Parliament, going to be 18th of July or so until some of that area is allowed to do more.
