    LNER reservations social distancing

    My wife booked two tickets for us and got allocated a seat each on 2 different tables of 4. The tickets were booked using a disabled rail card so they normally sit us close together, but not this time. It's not an issue for us, perhaps they were just filling up spare seats in the coach.

    Aylesbury to High Wycombe, seven buses an hour?

    1614865439 The rail service between the 2 biggest places in Bucks is poor compared to the bus options. Plus the buses serve Stoke Mandeville hospital which may generate a lot of custom

    Never mind the wrong route number, no one is wearing a mask on the bus!

    LU to Network Rail track connections.

    This picture is Mantles Wood, a mile or so past Amersham station where Network Rail track joins TFL track, just by the small signs on the trackside.

    Incident at Chalfont & Latimer (21/06)

    Does Real Time Trains work on London Underground tracks? There seems to be a bit of a black hole between Harrow and Amersham at times, I had assumed because it was London Underground track. I thought time table times were shown.

    Kings Cross Old Departure Board

    Thanks for that. I was hoping for a picture of the electronic board, I spent many an hour waiting for my wife by it!

    Kings Cross Old Departure Board

    Strange request perhaps, but has anyone got any pictures of the old departure board at Kings Cross that was in the 1970s concourse building that has been replaced by the new concourse? Thanks

    Incident at Chalfont & Latimer (21/06)

    The BBC London Transport correspondents is reporting a Chiltern service took a wrong signal at Chalfont and Latimer on the Metropolitan line and came very close to a Met line train. This seems rather worrying. https://twitter.com/BBCTomEdwards/status/1275110168104239110

    3 Spies Junction? Coventry - Nuneaton Line

    I went to school in the Coventry area in the 1970s. We would sometimes go and see what was happening at the sidings at what I think was called 3 Spies Junction. This is where the line from the Kersley Coal Mine joined the Coventry to Nuneaton line. The line went from there over a level crossing...

    Long Walks at High Wycombe Station

    Wycombe station is built on a stagger, so if you want to go from the main entrance to platform 3 for faster trains to London, it's quite a walk to the end of platform 2, then over the bridge to platform 3. But it also can be a long walk to a London bound train on platform 1 as if it is a short...

    LNER Azuma (Class 800/801)

    They seemed to line up pretty well in coach K, i did not see every seat in the other first class coach, but what I did see looked OK

    LNER Azuma (Class 800/801)

    I travelled on the Azuma yesterday from Leeds to Kings Cross. I travelled in coach K, First Class. I have travelled on the equivalent coach on a GWR IET and must say the LNER version looks much brighter. My wife thought it was a different type of train to the GWR one, the difference was that...

    West Midlands 153 and 170

    I caught the same service yesterday with a 170 / 153. The 153 stopped in front of me, the door light came on, I pressed but nothing happened! I am sure the unit was in use, but I moved quickly to the 170. I don’t know if the door did open, but can they be slow?

    West Midlands 153 and 170

    Today, March 29, I caught the 16:35 from Kidderminster to Dorrigde. I was surprised to see the third carriage was a class 153, a separate unit. When I got of at Smethwick G Bridge I am pretty sure the front unit was a 170. I travel to and from Kidderminster about once every 2 weeks and...
