    Rule on in-cab signalling for 140mph - just UK?

    Indeed it did. I want to know what 222 Marylebone Road were thinking. We could've had in cab signalling but we don't have any outside of what is essentially a trial in Wales.

    ScotRail HST Introduction - Updates & Discussion

    There was a spare 225 set, but Hatfield and Great Heck nuked that idea from orbit. So they may have a spare set now, but a crash here, a dropped set there and your spare set no longer exists.

    ScotRail HST Introduction - Updates & Discussion

    The images show that (looking towards the end that's in the air) the end bulkhead and left hand door area is caved in. There's several sitting in store that are clean. So even if the frame is undamaged, I can see it becoming a christmas tree and then scrapped.

    I think it's going to be Alstom bid at Widnes & joint bid with hitachi at Derby. You have to remember Derby may well have other trains under build by then.

    Stonehaven derailment

    This is a very sad incident and my condolences are with those affect by this. My thoughts are also with the emergency services who have an even tougher job with the risk of COVID 19.
