Still haven't had chance to ride down it yet, Too busy and constantly feeling cold, Has anyone got an idea, as to when Ashley Hill is likely to be built?.

It's on the "urgent" list, so probably about 50 years time.

Crikey! I may never see it then?.

Hopefully, I will be proved wrong!

I suppose it is down to Bristol City Council, who would probaby put in some money to NR.

Filton bank and Bristol parkway seems closed again, How dare they do that on my Birthday. There is a signal number in Gloucester station with my age on, G??.

I Think it would be nice if we could have a thread on the Gloucester eastgate station, Maybe some members on here would have old pictures.

It closed on the 1st of December 1975 to the disscust of the city, so I was told by John.

There is,nt a G103, But there is a GA103 At Alstone crossing, Set by Gloucester panel, then released by Alstone crossing box.

G54 is the plat 1 down starter, usually shows amber for trains into plat 2.

Gosh! Do we need six tracks now?. Just got the other two, I feel its time Network Rail had something else to spend money on, I think Gloucester and Cheltenham should be next, some of our tracks are dreadful, also the points are on their last motors, as they are so old. And this year some have been failing, delaying trains.Also the East junction at BTM Is about to be done, When resignalled they did not change the points or signals, but rewired new cables to the old ones. So a job waiting, I Read somewhere on NR Website that it was being done on the 25th and 26th,Christmas and boxing days), Also some change to Westbury which I assume is for an additional platform and two tracking the line through Melksham. I Can see there being a riveting thread on that one, the cameras will be back out!. Lets live in hope, Look forward to 2019.


DEC 24TH, Another failed last night, many trains got cancelled at last minute.

Sad to say, Christmas is just another normal day to me, Just cook dinner as usual.
