    Railtours - half capacity during Covid19 pandemic?

    OK. So i was all confused because on the website the Autumn west highlander is scheduled to run. And i couldn't imagine how that could work - so I spoke to them - it seems this is just a glitch in the website! It shouldn't be listed. Nevertheless there's plenty of capacity on the rails at the...

    Railtours - half capacity during Covid19 pandemic?

    Hi, If a rail tour has to operate at half capacity due to social distancing does that work? Or does it mean it must be cancelled? I've read rumours that they have to be 95% full to break even - which seems unlikely?

    GN Class 717

    Interesting. Now we're 100% 717 though, we could use the general reliability figures i guess. Will wait a few months and see what they look like!

    TfL is going to track all London Underground users using Wi-Fi

    They did this a year ago and advertised it heavily. They even published the results. They did find people using weird routes. In response they concluded it was an education issue and the plan was better signage. They did also spot clever people taking seemingly longer routes that avoid...

    HST Preservation?

    Hi, read recently about the GW HST's being refurbished for scotrail, so i see they have a new lease of life, is this true for all the LNER ones too? Will they go on to other lines? If not, is anyone going to preserve one? if one isnt already preserved somewhere? I would guess so?!?
