There was after the 1994 closure a request for bids for the preservation of the line, there were two main bidders...

    The best rail day of the year - so far - 14/02 London!

    CovRC - 4th Feb

    Please can you get your facts correct before you go slating people. Didn't do the Caledonian Sleeper I did the Night Riveria due to 47s being used instead of 57s, which to me was special enough to justify going. I didn't really feel up to going up to Coventry and doing all that work after 2/3...
