This may have been discussed before, but how far through the application process does someone have to be at the closure date to be included? I ask as there have been reports throughout the period of t ...

Once production and loading moved over to Alveley/Alveley Sidings, I imagine Highley yard would have been rather lacking in use, given the generous siding accommodation at Alveley Sidings. If it was t ...

I note that several of the coal wagons in the yard have their side doors open, and that one appears to be partly unloaded. Would this be for railway use (e.g. the signal box), or did a coal merchant o ...

Without the changes explicitly marked, I think a summary of the changes is as follows:

2.45 ex KR to run 45 minutes later, departing KR 3.30.

From a traffic management point of view how might this be affected were a dmu to reverse 'in section' at Foley Park with, say, a 5 minute turnaround?
