In June, myself and a friend are looking at staying a night in either of these towns.
Having never been to either, I would welcome advice about which is the more interesting town to stay in. eg general ambience, interesting shops, pubs, etc.
I must admit to being a little surprised that Ive been unable to find any mention on the internet about someone seeking to do this mow quite substantial system in one day.
Surely someone out there must have attempted it? I guess it is because its not as iconic as The London Underground or say...
On the recent First Essex discussion the general consensus of opinion was that Chelmsford's local bus services were in a bit of a mess, after various routes were being tweaked and had bits bolted on from withdrawn routes etc
So I thought if anyone was to design a new, hopefully commercially...
It's occured to me that there doesn't seem to be a thread dedicated about how and when to do difficult or rare bits of track. (or if there is i can't find it)
So I thought I'd create this one.
The idea being advice about how to do the odd bit of line that either only has available to...
Not sure when this is likely to happen but I'm looking into spending a day track bashing around Manchester. It will probably be on a Friday for obvious reasons, as I'd like to to get the Stockport-Guide Bridge line in. So any information about odd working and bits of line that get very few...
Are tickets from/via Nuneaton to/via Coventry accepted via Rugby?
This has come up because the Cross Country Trains from Stansted Airport to Birmingham are often late when they reach Nuneaton and so people miss the connection to Coventry.
I've been banned from selling on ebay due to events outside of my control.
And they won't be reasoned with.
Any advice about setting up new ebay/paypal accounts will be welcome.
Anyone else ion here gone through this?
I've had a look on the internet and it seems that they do this to people...
I see from the Rail Atlas that there is a short piece of single line just west of Ashford International leading from the line, from Maidstone East. Does anyone know how easy it is to clear this line? Do all the trains arriving from MDE traverse it? Or just a few? I have virtually cleared Kent...
I'm considering staying for a night or two there in conjunction with doing The Borders Line.
Would it be best to go on a working day in order to experience the place at its best?
Up to now to me its just been a town with an amusing name that was mentioned in Blackadder
I'm considering staying in Perth for a couple of nights in October and would like to get some Olympian bashing in if still possible.
Am I right in believing saw that they sometimes drop on the route from Arbroath to Brechin? or would I be better of sticking around in Perth on the hope that they...
Has the run up to the referendum, and fall out from it, stirred up strong anti English sentiments in some places such as Glasgow or Dundee etc?
Has anyone found a change in attitude to the English in some places?
Sometimes it is merely a coincidence, as when Network Colchester extended the 133 from Braintree to Colchester in 2011 which involved some running along a short section of the A133 to the west of Colchester.
Or deliberate as when the short lived Budget Buses ran their 12 from Colchester to...
Accidently or intentionally
I rode on Stagecoach Leyland Olympian 013 TSO13X from Errol to Perth on the 16 on March 24th 1993.
And on January 4th 2004 by then in the ownership of Stephensons, she dropped on rail replacement from Chelmsford to Shenfield.
But I dare say there are people on...
