Ir-rel-evant! That shows long sections of overhead track and we know, because Marvellous Mayor Marvin has told us, that Marvellous Marvin's Mayoral Metro in Beautiful Bustling Bristol will be underground.

What does that mean? Google shows me lots of nice pictures of vices for my work bench. Is it a railway term or some obscure word that my English teacher didn't tell me about?

I don't use Latin per se.

I think that there are plenty of trains around - Yoker is filling up with Class 314's and more succulent units may follow.

What is lacking is the wires to feed them. I think that there are (to be) c3 trains per hour each way between Chester and Liverpool/Manchester - total distance c56 miles of which only 19 lack the wires. There is juice available from Frodsham via Rivington Road FS.

Agreed the North Wales services would involve a change but they could be doubled in capacity as a result until the 769's appear.....

The City Mayors and WG should follow through with their plans not leave them half baked as here.

I can remember when there were a few oil tankers at Wareham for the Wytch Farm oil field. I've googled and found this for anyone interested-

Are we back on the Far North Line?

One of the less bleak and open stations that has been "singled" at some time in the past?

Is that enough (in football terms) to be an assist to enable one of our more knowledgeable colleagues to  score in the dying minutes of the game, or earn extra time?

In footballing terms, it's looking like the ball is going just wide of the goal.
