  • Excuse the ignorance, but what's the meaning of the heart icon in the logo at the top of the forum?

    Ah - just thought - could it be to do with Valentines Day on Sunday? (sorry for making a second post, couldn't edit previous one)

    @Peter C, it has changed for me, perhaps you need to clear the cached version (Ctrl+F5)?

    @A Challenge It seems to have changed for me - but thanks anyway. I'll use that trick in future. :)

    What is the route called please.

    I assume you mean the BVE route I was taking about in the post below?
    I can't remember exactly, and I have a few dozen routes installed so can't really go through them all and check, but I do know it was Northern, and I think it was from a set by 'eezypeazy', either the ECML one or the Tyne Valley.
    (As you can likely tell, I don't drive trains for a living - if I did, I'd have far better route-knowledge than that :D)

    ok thanks for the reply.
    Just been playing BVE (which is a driving simulator) and there's a yellow sign with a black letter 'T' on it on a post next to the track. Doesn't seem worth starting a whole new thread for but does anyone know what this means?
    Just wondering - have GWR or FGW ever run Pacers coupled in multiple with their 150s, 153s or 158s?

    It was one hell of a Diversion.

    150s definitely, seen a few combos down Dawlish way; 153s seems quite feasible; 158s I've no idea, maybe as ECS?

    Yes, yes and yes. I've seen all three combinations.
    If anyone knows what the prominent sort of screechy-sounding instrument in most - if not all - versions of the theme to "Doctor Who" is, I'd like to know... I just can't place it!

    There was a show I watched on TV which mentioned this at some point - I think it was a case of the relevant BBC department going away and making the theme from countless different things. The suggestion of the theremin seems to be the best answer. (The theremin being one of few instruments you can share in the current climate as you don't touch it! :))

    @XAM2175 probably that then, it was in a documentary about the programme some years ago that mentioned it

    It could possibly not be a real instrument at all, most of the music and sound affexts were created by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
    Some proof-reading and sanity checks would not go amiss on the National Rail website (example below:)

    I think the time it showed a Fife Circle train as destination Shoeburyness was even more laughable ;)

    You've been opening the Christmas crackers early I see.
    Regardless of your stance on Covid, can we all just agree that the communication quality of information needs to improve?

    Vague ambiguous nonsense, nonsense one-way systems. and blatantly incorrect terminology seem to be the norm now.

    The forum isn't letting me submit posts for some reason...

    I had the same issue on the TV advertising thread. 'Submit' didn't work in Chrome, but seemed fine in Safari.

    @nlogax Adblockers will detect the word "advertising" and assume things below it are an ad, which interferes with the submit functionality. Do you perhaps have an adblocker installed in Chrome, but not Safari?

    @Xenophon PCDGS Yes, I managed to figure out why as you can see above

    Hah, good point and well spotted..foiled by my own adblocker!
    I wonder if they have trouble getting trains started at North Pole TMD because of how cold it is :D

    They have magical reindeer for shunters, so as long as they don't run out of carrots it's all good! ;)

    Have you only just become one? It used to be at about 990-1020 posts that triggered it

    @hexagon789 I've not been paying attention very much, but I don't believe I was one yesterday and I've posted about 30 times today so make of that what you will

    You're right, the threshold seems to have been raised. It used to be around 1000, now it seems to be over 1100
