Could the mods give consideration to splitting this topic as the land slip at Harbury has little connection with the resignalling of Banbury station?

This isn't specifically a Chiltern thread - also XC too....I think it was ok on the board it was on?

Once the threads have been redistributed to reflect current operations, we can take a look at what's gone where and tweak any board descriptions.  That's best done in the light of the experience of the moving, rather than speculatively.

With my thanks for your patience, gentlemen, I have now moved this topic back to its original, geographically correct, location on the Coffee Shop forum - that is, north of Banbury.  Smiley

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

'north of Banbury' in the London to Banbury section?   geographically correct? Hmmm  Shocked    sorry just drifted into pedant mode Grin

Seriously though as has been previously mentioned, many thanks to you and others who keep this forum going all in your spare time, I and I'm sure many others are very grateful to the efforts you guys put in.  Smiley

Yes, to be fair, it's outside our area, so it's difficult to decide just where to put this topic.  Roll Eyes

That's why I quoted the various previous comments - showing that there isn't really a definitive answer as to where I should put the bluddy topic.  Lips sealed

I pass above this cutting a few times each year on the B4452 Harbury to Long Itchington road and it's been interesting to see the work progressing. Next time should be September, I guess it'll be finished. I might remember to think about getting a photo!

I always stop to have a look  Cheesy but I never have a camera with me and my phone is awful at taking photos. However, I've just got a new phone with a much better camera, so hopefully this time I will.
