    Paddington Station 24/7 - Channel 5

    Ian Allan Waterloo to close

    Sad news, but not surprising. I haven’t been there for a good five years, but when I did go, it was fairly regularly and I usually spent at least £50-100 per visit. Why did I stop going? Products cheaper online, including magazine subscriptions and using, I hate to say places like Amazon for...

    RAIL vs Modern Railways

    Modern Railways is far superior. Detailed articles written by respected railway journalists. I’ve read it for the last 25 years. Rail on the other hand....went downhill years ago when Nigel Harris took over. Too cosy to Daft for my liking.

    NewSo, a few snippets from a release to staff today..... Most Trent Valley services are strengthened to 8 coaches....the 1546 Euston to Crewe isn't however, as the 1549 to Liverpool via Birmingham gets 8 instead. Thanks for the update, sadly when I travel up to the Trent Valley, it’s mainly...
