  1. Finally, the opposite view to so many layout clichés!
  2. Into Fort Pitt tunnel at Chatham, with plenty of platform paraphernalia:
  3. Does this count as third rail? An ex-Thameslink ex-GWR ex-319, 769949, being towed from Long Marston to Doncaster just as the heavens opened. Rotherham today, with 37800 doing the work at the front.
  4. Of the above, at least the Dunstable cement used the bogie Blue Circle cement wagons late 1970s/early 1980s (e.g. https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/bogiepresflo).
  5. Bit late now, but the other missing option is “Either - I don’t mind”
  6. …in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard’ ?
  7. That first shot reminded me of one the opening scenes to M. Hulot's Holiday!
  8. Spanning the decades at Rotherham today: 1960s loco (City of Truro, named after a 1900s loco), towing a late-1970s loco (rebuilt in the 2020s), being passed by a 2000s DMU. Bonus points for a circus-related pun for the big top in the old football ground car park! (47749 City of Truro + 69008 running from Leicester-Doncaster, 170473 on a Sheffield-Scarborough)
  9. Just to close the lid on the Wakefield Kirkgate story, here it is today, tidy (with the odd bit of excess vegetation) even if it's a shadow of its former self:
  10. A couple from W Yorkshire, first a TP from the canal below Marsden: and then 150001 leaving Huddersfield for Penistone and Sheffield:
  11. Not 45099 as the /0s didn't go that high. Looks like a 45/1 - any nameplate experts here? (or itinerant Deltic identifiers?)
  12. I think the '56' headcodes were boat trains, 56 = Victoria-Folkestone, 46 = Victoria-Dover Marine (later Western Docks)? See also https://sremg.org.uk/headcodes/eheadcodes/eheadcodes03.html
  13. The flickr caption says Or “Advertising train of BR as a guest in Munich 1971” There are more in that collection of the same train, e.g. “Come and see Britain by Rail” on DB975074 and DB975073: and cinema coach DW150353 I wish the flickr captions would get displayed here - save a to of to-ing and fro-ing
