    Class 142 diagrams post-May timetable change

    Where are you likely to find Pacers on a Sunday? West Yorkshire local services used to be a hotbed of 14x traction, but since all these 150’s arrived it can be a bit more random!

    Bradshaws Handbook

    Wasn't there also an updated UK Bradshaws guide published after 1900? I seem to remember this being referred too in the Great British Railway Journeys series, as there are some towns included in the new guide that wern't built when the 1863 guide was produced.

    Buying Models Online

    As many others have said, Hattons is probably your best bet. Never had a problem with them, and been using them for well in excess of 2 years. Generally buy the majority of my models from them, and all are still going strong.

    Class 180 Allocations

    But if no-one is using them, and Northern only intend on short term lease like their current sets, whats the possibility of the Leasing Co to say no? Surley its better to have a unit on lease, earning money, and operational, rather than sat in a depot not earning anything, and not in use? (Which...

    ScotRail repaint countdown

    IIRC 158786/789 are Northern units, subleased to Scotrail. The livery you see, is base Northern Blue, ready for when they transfer back to Northern.

    Thameslink to the Great Northern

    The Canal Tunnels part of TLP has yet to reach the drawing board. (Or tender phase!) I actually visited St Pancras this morning, and have a fairly good idea of how the layout should look, once completed. Blackfriars station as has been said previously, is going to completley change both in...

    Applying for Job with Northern

    No, they check you for that. Its so you don't throw any substances away that could be hidden in your socks or pants, to purify your urine of any drugs that could be found within. Thats what the BUPA lady told me when I asked!
