  1. At the other end. Lots of photos of this shunt from around 1988-91.
  2. A notable exception is Kenilworth which was rebuilt in the style (although not quite size) of the original. Cheers David
  3. A few new platforms opened in the 2010s comparison. All seem to be 2.5m. Newtongrange Eskbank Ebbw Vale Town (might be 3m compared to the Pacer width of 2.8m) Galashiels Meridian Water (not country but platform 4 seems to be about 2.5m) Cheers David
  4. Another amazing build by Luke Towan. The techniques are applicable to many other structures.
  5. And the LNWR DX Goods. 54 of them were given names. Ceers David
  6. This loco still exists, looking at bit sad at the moment although now being restored to operation. http://www.australiansteam.com/fowler19930.htm Sister loco from 1928 in much better condition. http://www.australiansteam.com/fowler17881.htm Cheers David
  7. Yes. It passed into LMS ownership but I can't find any info about disposal. And I found another one! Cheers David
  8. There were some 2-6-0Ts on the Tralee and Dingle Light Railway which was technically in the UK at the time they were built. Cheers David
  9. There were some narrow gauge 0-6-2 tender engines in South Africa.
  10. 3801 adhesion testing on Cowan Bank, 30 years and 7 days after tragic accident at Cowan.
  11. 86401, painted NSE livery ostensibly for working to Cambridge, kept turning up in Glasgow. Cheers David
  12. Especially the engine compartment after it arrived in Bunbury with an inch of oil on the floor. Cheers David
  13. I was going to mention this if the discussion went on to CDU design. The voltage rating of the capacitor needs to be at least 1.4 times the AC input voltage plus another 10% margin, rounded up to the next available voltage rating. So for 12V AC input you'd be looking at a 20V rated capacitor. For 16V AC you'd need a 35V rated capacitor. 50V would be even better. Cheers David
