If anything, there's ...

As the building itself and the lack of progress are very much in public view, I don't see much point in hiding the discussion about it.

How certain are you of that? There's no evidence one way or the other, but I'd say the repeated use of words like "lockdown" and "inaccessible" did far more harm than the road clos ...

See what I mean? A detour via Bewdley and its bypass does not make Kidderminster “inaccessible from Bridgnorth”.
If you want “inaccessible” try living down Northwood Lane when it gets closed three ti ...

A separate thread for each locomotive is hardly havoc. After all, the Steam section is up to eight pages now and everyone seems to manage just fine.

Thanks Pete, that's much better although "Are you looking for a day out in the family?" still needs that one word changing.

Any chance you could get access to the Engine House Virtual To ...

Has anyone else clicked on the Days Out links at the bottom of every page?
They are so appallingly badly written that they are comical.

It must be cheaper to extend an existing building than build a new one, so could the children's play area at Highley be moved and the Engine House extended?
5764, the LNWR van and the TPOs are all co ...

Not Bewdley Tunnel, the tunnel on the old Stourport line, which we still own.

Burlish Tunnel? I don't know how wet it is in there, but it can't be any worse than being left outside.
At 124 yards long it could contain about 5 or 6 carriages and could be made secure relatively ...

Thanks, it's obvious they're splashguards now you've pointed it out. Two can be seen on the engine nearest the camera.
It was the smaller engine on the right that threw me. The flywheel looks like a ...

Another undated one from Coalbrookdale.
They look like two cylinder compound steam powered water pumps to me, with a couple of unusual features. The flywheels look a bit like the paddles on a water w ...

I guess the manufacturers don't sell enough half bricks to have 26000 rejects left over.
