I also note that the modern mileages are much less than historic ones before the "gap" (2005 and earlier). Annual mileages were above 60,000 miles every year from 1993 to 2005, and around th ...

The first and third of those photos (with the buckets on ropes) appear to be Billingsley Colliery, going by the lettering on the wagons in the third photo.

Perhaps a trick of the light, but the fir ...

I saw no sign of joinery last week. In its current condition it is not going to come to any harm anyway.

I, too, am a little lost as to Derby4's repeated concern over making the building watertight ...

2016 had turn up on the day tickets on the first weekend too (not sure it was this many though).

I note that it appears the additional Santa Sleigh services seem to have resulted in the SVR exceeding market demand, given the number of unsold seats this weekend. Perhaps this will settle the long-r ...

I have some doubts about it being Broseley, given the prominence of the hills in the background - Broseley is itself on a hilltop, and it's downhill in pretty much every direction.

I don't like the idea of a express travelling at 125mph or more being self driving.

Clearly starting to go off-thread, but why not? A driver is no more able to stop a 125mph train within sighting d ...

Ah yes, I had overlooked D1015. On the diesel roster for what, it lacks heating?

Shunting Christmas stock at Arley, both before and after Santa season.

I presume, therefore, that D1015 won't be ...

Looks like a (cropped, and slightly poorer quality) version of this photo on Britain From Above, dated 1934: https://britainfromabove.org.uk/en/image/EPW046398

An NB employee on FB stated that only two on-train staff are based at Kidderminster, with most being based in the north ("Crewe onwards"). There was also mention by someone else that the pla ...

Do you intend to forward this more officially to the railway? As we all know, the SVR management are not very eager to respond to online comments or postings, so I believe your (fairly lengthy!) propo ...

Also, limping home would imply that the fault is with an engine or motor; I've had ...

I had thought that LED bulbs were almost universally considered to be incredibly reliable, with many fewer fragile parts than an incandescent bulb. The manufacturer's website for Graham's bulb states ...
