Will this mean Swindon 'A' Panel will close then or will that only happen after a further stage?  If so what will this stage cover?

This stage covers Uffington to Rushey Platt (West of Swindon).  This will leave Wooton Bassett and West therof on the existing Swindon panel until the final stage which was going to be Christmas/New Year 2015/2016 but it looks if its slipping back again (now I wonder why Roll Eyes).

Will the work in a fortnight's time also include the small bit of the Kemble line that Swindon still controls?

Dates from a post on the WNXX (Stored Unserviceable, Mainline Locos HQ All Classes) forum (not sure of the original source for the dates as I haven't seen any official notification yet confirming them):

Uffington to Rushey Platt (excl) - 22/23 November

Rushey Platt to Wootton Bassett - 23/24 January

Wootton Bassett to Corsham/Hullavington - 20/21 February

Different plan to what I understood to be the case.

I assume this should read as 21/22 November, otherwise good fun for commuting next Monday!

The latest news can be found here on the Swindon Panel Preservation website:
http://www.swindonpanel.org.uk/2015/11/18/swindon-panel-update-11-out-now/

Note: The de-commissioning dates and arrangements are more accurate than those published on the WNXX (Stored Unserviceable, Mainline Locos HQ All Classes) forum  Tongue Roll Eyes

We seem to have two topics discussing Swindon Panel/Resignalling.  Perhaps I could kindly ask one of the moderators to merge them into one (the other is at http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?topic=12821).

Thanks for your constructive suggestion, SandTEngineer.  Wink

Yes, the two topics were in danger of duplicating input on the ongoing subject, so I've now moved one topic from 'the wider picture' and merged both of them here.

I think this helps with 'continuity and ease of future reference'. CfN. Grin

Thanks CfN.  Being a Moderator on another forum I know that sometimes it can be a pain having to move things around Wink

Cheeky git!  Shocked Roll Eyes Grin

It's really no problem, merging topics in response to any constructive suggestion from a Coffee Shop member: I merely have to look at where best to put the merged topic, and how best to rename it.


(I'd far rather spend my time doing that than have to move any topic as a 'damage-limitation exercise', where a member has possibly posted inappropriately, for example - but that happens only once in a blue moon, thankfully!)  Lips sealed

Just a small update.

The new signals at the west end of Swindon station are lit ready for their first trains, including SW1201 on the end of platform 4.



The old gantry, which was too low for the wires, has been taken down and now lies in the car park.
