Aside from pondering why the EDP placed this story on their Motoring page: Would it really have been completely out of the question to temporarily use the original Sheringham station? Or would that have set some sort of precedent?

The crossing between the two stations is set up for occasional operation only - see ((here)) - and would be labour intensive, very delaying of trains, and would need ORR approval for the number of movements.  Attachment - the operational details.

   Two weeks doesn't seem all that long a delay if you compare it to Berney Arms ...

Or Barlaston...

If that's a "Where's Wally" style photo of a bush, I haven't found the woman yet! I'll keep looking Grin

Except that's not a 747 in the photo. 747s and A380s are probably the only aircraft types I can identify these days. Everything else just looks the same to me.


The one with the tail showing is an Airbus A321-231. The other is an A320-232. Neither looks remotely like a BAe-146.

More details revealed about new Ashley Down station on Henbury line
Work is already underway

Direct service from Ashley Down to Manchester Piccadilly? Or is it Manchester Victoria?
"Work is already underway" is rather misleading too.

Piccadilly.  Sure, why not, been done before.

From the Summer of '98 - the 07:59 Manchester Piccadilly to London Waterloo ... called at Bristol Temple Meads 11:30 to 11:35, arrived Waterloo 14:13.  Returned at 15:17 from Waterloo.  Interesting calling pattern ... had Ashley Down been open in those days it could have joined Bradford-on-Avon, Warminster and Craven Arms as a station with direct services to both London (Waterloo) and Manchester.
