    1972TS Refurbishment Progression

    Last I knew the new DVA on 1972TS is just a 1992TS DTS “lite” mode.

    1992 stock Refurbishment?

    Train #1 was supposed to be done by 2017…(!)

    Potential up to 2,000 job losses at Alstom Derby

    Except that would be a flood of housing into an area already flush with new development

    Potential up to 2,000 job losses at Alstom Derby

    So Alstom is backed into a corner to either provide a the fleet at a loss, or actually cover their costs and be told by the DfT that they’re too expensive very publicly and the site will close because of the greedy French. When in reality, the site is shut down, production is shut down, and all...

    Potential up to 2,000 job losses at Alstom Derby

    The contractors have gone home. RR Production will cover a fair bit off of the council ever let them expand the site. The useage of the site longer term, industrial use is out with all of DCCs idiotic traffic requirements. Housing space you can’t flood the market that quickly, the Nightingdale...

    Potential up to 2,000 job losses at Alstom Derby

    The site is essentially dead already now. The only reason to keep it as it “was” now is nostalgia. Effort would be more productively focused by the govt on finding alternative industries for the operatives that havnt found other work yet. JCP is useless at this though of course

    Potential up to 2,000 job losses at Alstom Derby

    So just when anyone good has found alternative employment they’ll try to restart with all contractors, quality will be low and then that will be the last contract that is delivered by Derby

    So in short no. Not licensed to work in special zones.

    Electric Shower tripping RCD

    I'm sorry but no. Actually, I'm not sorry. Just NO! Changing a high power load that requires properly matched cabling and circuit protective devices (to which most people will not understand or have access to suitable training material from the on site guide or BS7671), for which proper...

    Electric Shower tripping RCD

    Maybe more apt to say that anyone asking anywhere about this kind of stuff shouldn’t be working in special zones under Part P.

    WCRC loses judicial review in High Court

    The availability on the 47s isn't amazing from what I've been hearing.

    Electric Shower tripping RCD

    Unless you’re in Scotland a shower will be classed as being in a Special Zone under BS 7671 so this is notifiable works under Part P of the building regs as such should be done by a qualified electrician. If you need to be asking on a railway forum what the fault looks like, maybe perhaps you...

    Train Gearing and Maximum Speeds

    Weak fielding on LU stock was actually an additional 2 or 3 notches at the top of the sequence. BR locomotives such as the 47s also had this feature. Also, some trains do have gearboxes, noteable amongst these being the Class 172s

    WCRC loses judicial review in High Court

    The Mk.1 generator is non passenger so I wouldn’t read too much into that

    Class 175 future speculation

    I wouldn’t trust that ATL document too much. Some of them 153s are already gone. Hint: look at the GCR

    Thank you! I thought everyone was taking it too seriously

    Doncaster Sheffield Airport to reopen?

    Shouldn’t the airport for Yorkshire be at Leeds International Airstrip? Where the flight will touch down 20 minutes later…?
