I know they missed out Corby the first time round due to the EMT service getting cancelled due to signalling issues, but since revisited it when they returned to London [I think the Greenford branch got missed off the first time as well].

Judging by the Map it looks like the Glasgow Suburban Area is mostly done, now onto the more time consuming (but beautiful) lines such as the West Highlands/Highland Main Line etc

I fail to see why their engagement/marital status has any bearing on the project as a whole. It's none of our business!

They could do an three in a row with Balmossie, Barry Links & Golf Street being pretty much together on the Aberdeen to Edinburgh line.

Yes i know though, i'm not interested myself though a lot here keep asking about it. Maybe people like a soap opera.

I don't think they can, as it doesn't stop at 'All The Stations'.

depends on whether they'll go Mallaig-Kyle via Skye or make a return back down the WHL. They could could take the steam train one way, take a normal service the other.

Good point!

Maybe The Jacobite one way and the service train the other.

Yes an excellent read, and Paul Merton did a handful of Programmes based on the book.

First request-stop in the book? Lelant, of course.

I'm writing one on Remote Stations. I went to Havenhouse on Thursday and have two more trips to do. The book will be out next year. It will be more railway based than Dixie's which is an enjoyable read but more of a travel book than a railway book.

Latest episode is live and is very possibly my favourite yet, its entitled All The Pacers, All of Them

there is a clear divide between man and woman on this with Vicky liking them and Geff not! It made me smile when they included a montage of all the pacers they have ridden up til the Chadhill one which is their last and the end music has even been changed to say all the pacers, all of them several times before saying stupid pacers right at the very end, a statement with which I naturally disagree!

You'll have to update us on this and let us know when it's out!

I do wonder if we're going to have to put up with "it's a jolly!" claims for the rest of recorded time
