  1. Hi, wondered if anyone has any details of Barry and the locos that visited it and whther they used the shed building of it sthat was given over entirely for wagon repairs? regards
  2. Hi, seems that Pic by 40011 MAURETANIA are these the Hereford "Edgar Street Sidings", but appear OOU? where they ever used by diesels? DMUs? from when to when?
  3. Hi, after the former steam shed closed, I thought the diesels stabled in the sidings near the station? but the Quail shows Edgar Street Sidings at Hereford? just wondered where these were and they were used for? Locos? DMUs?
  4. Hi, according to Google earth there's still the shell of the former Danycraig shed left standing? has it been bulldozed or who anyone be able to confirm that it still stand today?
  5. hi, would anyone happen to have any pics/details/records of locos that stabled at Hereford station for all this traffic?
  6. Would anyone happen to know what the 1X36 headcode on a Hall and a Western in 1963 would have been for? Presumably an express either to or from Paddington?
  7. my mate did a uni placement there in the early 2000s and it was still in and in use then.
  8. Hi, would anyone happen to know when the sidings at Rhymney were all re-laid to the stabling point that is there now? How many units stable there, presumably over night? regards

  10. evening, just getting a little confused between the buildings at Cardfiff Cathays, what exactly where there, cardiff Cathays shed/works/wagon works???
  11. has anyone got any picture of Aberbeeg stabling point?
  12. think I've just answered my own question looking at the earlier maps and when the 1858 shed opened, it looks like the railway built a row of houses "Aberbeeg" and that was the name of the shed. Glandwr at the was only a very small settlement, but by the time the new four track shed was opened in 1919 much further to the south, Glandwr had grown considerably, but the new shed retained the name Aberbeeg....
  13. morning, just out of sheer interest and not one I imagine anyone will have a definite answer for, but why was Aberbeeg Shed not called Glandwr? looking at the shed's location https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/320990/201106/12/100954 it is opposite the village of Glandwr and Aberbeeg is further along the line?
  14. Good morning, had a chat with the signalman in Pantyffynnon signal box this morn to enquire about the stabling point that used to be there. He says that the last duties of the stabling point were to man the cut down 08s on the Coed Bach line... I don't doubt him, but those duties were previously Llanelli's? So it begs the questions of when were the south Wales stabling points closed... such Llanelli, Pantyffynnon, Camerthan etc?
