Anyone know if this will affect the maintenance of Island Line's Class 484s?

The current thinking is probably not.  Though it has already affected the Bedford <> Bletchley route as stated.  TfW Borderlines route introduction and GWR (Great Western Railway) Greenford trials still hoping to continue, but I’m struggling to see how in the case of the Greenford service, unless someone takes the company over.

There's already a thread on VivaRail's administration here - can they be combined?

London North-western suspended the Bedford - Bletchley service was last week replacing it with a buss until further notice, LNR says due to Vivrail going into administration this therefore means that there is no guarantee of maintenance for the trains on the route.

So where is this fine train?



Sorry Grahame, but that is not "a fine train"................it's two pretty mediocre short trains joined together.

Sad news for the Greenford Branch. Isle of Wight trains ok.

As nobody has answered, I'll cheat slightly as I know your general whereabouts  Wink  I hope it is relaxing break for you and Finn.

A private funicular serving Boots the Chemist Shop, used for goods transport on a steep hill. It can be found opposite Sovereign House on the Terrace, behind Boots in Torquay, near the harbour. ? ?

That's correct. The Boots branch on The Strand that this funicular served is now gone. The premises is now a Taco Bell. I guess they've no need to transport their quesadillas and burittos on it(!) hence its abandonment to nature.

Some pictures of it when it wasn't so overgrown:

I did wonder if Ilfracombe featured, but from the wider shot, that does appear a Torquay'ish architecture.

No guesses as to the location of pictures above, so here's a slightly wider view that may help.
