  1. Not level crossing related but as this thread seems also to cover trespass in general, I present: https://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/18240029.man-caught-trespassing-railway-line-fined-4-80/ Perhaps the magistrate was using a very old list of penalties? I bet BTP wonder why they bother.
  2. Uk pints are 20 fl. oz., US pints are 16. Wimps.
  3. The wagons should have labels indicating the destination for each load. All wagons for one destination would be marshalled together. A coal merchant receiving different grades of coal would know which was which from their origin.
  4. Possibly tenders intended for Departmental weed killing trains, which would have required buffing gear adding.
  5. Some rebranded wagons seen at Eastleigh over the relevant period: Rebranded MRAs 01/04/2016: Reranded HQA, 26/02/2016: Partially repainted JJA, 15/07/2017:
  6. There are several spaces within the college car parks, including 5 outside the main entrance. Google Maps satellite view shows where the others are.
  7. For information, the Xelabus X4 Saturday service no longer goes past Barton Peveril College.. However the Bluestar 2 from Eastleigh Bus Station (+stops outside the railway station) serves a stop in Derby Road that's a short walk (signposted) from the college and runs at a 15 minute interval.

  9. There are shops, other than Games Workshop's own dedicated outlets, that sell GW products, so these might take them. One locally is also a Hornby dealer.
  10. Because you are unlikely to get it or see your money again (allegedly)*. See various threads on here about that firm. *inserted for legal reasons only.
  11. The Caley Single was released as a limited edition in 2007, made in China, so I doubt if the tools were scrapped at Margate. Whether they are still available in China is another matter.
  12. It was driven from the right hand rear seat. The tiller is mounted on the polished steel vertical thing/rod/tube visible between the front and rear seats, as in http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=174295&d=1332398220
  13. The Joiners is a music venue these days. In the '80s I used it regularly at lunchtimes when working on excavations in the St. Mary's area.
  14. That was never a military issue outfit anywhere; it looked like a 1980s or later cleaner's uniform, and what the **** did he have on his shoulder staps?.
  15. A range of Japanese trains in OO, to reach the shops in early 2021. That will sell well all over the world, not.
