    Fal Vale Junction, down in Cornwall in "The Ghost Train". The bridge being the one at Barmouth. Also the fictitious station in the Miss Marple "4.50 from Paddington". There was also a station in one of the Avengers (with John Steed and Mrs Peel) set on the then recently electrified WCML.

    Glastonbury special working allocation anomaly - is this possible?

    Maybe the whole Eurovision thing needs a rethink. It's supposed to be a "song contest" after all, but looking at this year's effort, it was more like an "over-the-top spectacle contest", with scantily dressed performers, light shows, waterworks, you name it. Can't remember any of the tunes to be...

    Master Cutler routing

    I think we've put it to bed that the "Cutler" wouldn't have passed through Derby on the goods lines alongside the station; instead using one of the platforms - probably #6 in the up direction and #1 in the down. Though I've no specific evidence other than one of the posters above saying that...
