1  All across the Great Western territory / Broadcast media about railways, and other means of transport / Re: Walking Britain's Lost Railways on: Yesterday at 10:11:51 pm
These are some of the lines I regret not travelling over when I had the opportunity as I was in that area in September 1967

At Paignton where certain trains reverse in the sidings at Goodrington

My initial thought was also Seaton before the new bridge was built

You just have to read the whole article  Grin Grin Grin
6  Journey by Journey / Plymouth and Cornwall / Re: Plymouth Station - refurbishment, improvements, timetable changes, events and incidents (merged on: September 08, 2018, 07:46:51 pm
Many local authorities now require garages to be at least 3.0m wide to count as one of the required parking space
7  All across the Great Western territory / Across the West / Re: Keeping the seat next to you clear on: September 05, 2018, 07:07:06 pm
In my view that is a very selfish and dishonest attitude (unless you have a ticket for your bag)

Behind a pay wall
9  All across the Great Western territory / The Wider Picture in the United Kingdom / Re: A UK wide rail holiday - when will services be reliable enough? on: September 02, 2018, 01:22:49 pm
I have one planned for early October and am fairly confident about it (except the 0830 Sunday train from Trowbridge to Swindon).  However I am avoiding Northern and GTR.  I also have backstop arrangements for those services about which I have less confidence.
10  Journey by Journey / Portsmouth to Cardiff / Re: 165/166s on this route on: August 30, 2018, 08:21:06 pm
The problem is that the 180s have gone to Grand Central who have also reserved those currently used by Hull Trains.  Their reliability is still poor and GC are now looking at hiring a loco hauled set to fills the gaps.
11  Journey by Journey / Heart of Wessex / Re: Station stops cancelled 1/8/18 on: August 24, 2018, 02:18:29 pm
It also raises the question of what happens to those passengers at the missed stations who want to travel to stations south of Westbury.  A  two hour wait for them  Sad
12  All across the Great Western territory / Diary - what's happening when? / Re: Imber bus on: August 21, 2018, 03:14:42 pm
If you look at the date on the article it is clear why the reference to rain is there.  It is dated August 2014
13  Journey by Journey / London to the West / Re: Class 802s on: August 20, 2018, 09:09:01 pm
Another positive factor for the W o E services is that the HSTs currently in use have not been promised elsewhere.
14  All across the Great Western territory / The Wider Picture in the United Kingdom / Re: How wide do you define "London"? on: August 20, 2018, 06:22:51 pm
The cruise companies define Southampton as London.  Probably due to our American cousins not understanding that there are other places apart from capital cities?

Usually an excellent day.  Unfortunately lock keeping duties prevent me from attending
