    From what I’ve read on Facebook tonight, it’s by road. A Colas driver stated that the flow to Sinfin will restart next month, presumably operated by Colas. A Colas 67 was down the branch earlier today route learning.

    Sinfin oil trains ceased?

    Recently, on one of the railway groups on Facebook, someone mentioned that oil trains to the RR facility at Sinfin had ceased. I checked RTT, and realised that the trains no longer run. As RR needs aviation fuel to test its engines, how are they receiving their oil now....road or pipeline...

    Inverness Drivers

    If employed by Scotrail, I’d say 158/170 and the shortened HSTs.

    Far North and Kyle lines. East to Aberdeen and as far South as Perth I think.

    RAIL vs Modern Railways

    Modern Railways is far superior. Detailed articles written by respected railway journalists. I’ve read it for the last 25 years. Rail on the other hand....went downhill years ago when Nigel Harris took over. Too cosy to Daft for my liking.

    LNR new WCML timetable, May 2019 (in open data feeds)

    NewSo, a few snippets from a release to staff today..... Most Trent Valley services are strengthened to 8 coaches....the 1546 Euston to Crewe isn't however, as the 1549 to Liverpool via Birmingham gets 8 instead. Thanks for the update, sadly when I travel up to the Trent Valley, it’s mainly...

    GN Class 717

    Are the cab windows the same as the 385s? They look it to my post night shift untrained eyes.

    Unacceptable whistleblowing at Blackfriars

    An amplified whistle sounds very unpleasant. My ears wouldn’t like that. Definitely follow it up as others have said.

    Glasgow Subway trains first in UK to run with no staff on board

    RAIL or Modern Railways

    Another vote for Modern Railways. I’ve read it for years and have just resubscribed for another two years. Excellent articles and expert analysis. I stopped buying Rail about 15 years ago. Was great when Murray Brown edited it.

    Coastal railways with Julie Walters channel 4 sunday

    I’m loving this series. I think it’s great. DarloRich is correct. This is a general interest programme featuring trains.

    Problems at the South end of the line. Someone feeling ill, then a ruckus between two passengers.

    Reading to Taunton Driver's Eye View?

    225 studios have done that stretch. A 66 running from Acton Main Line to Whatley Quarry. I have the DVD. It’s very good.
