    319s with Northern

    I was at Liverpool Lime street today and was struck by the paucity of Class 319s. When I went to London late last week from Northampton I was struck by the number of Class 319s at Bletchley sidings (not in LNWR livery). When I arrived back in Northampton tonight there were three or four Class...

    Spotting books

    I posted on this thread about some trainspotting books left on Rugby station about a year ago. I have had no replies. Does anyone know of someone who left some trainspotting books on Rugby station on 19th July 2018? I still have them in safe storage.

    Derelict driving parcels trailers @ Hellifield

    Does anyone know the identity of these vehicles ? And does anyone know the identity of similar vehicles parked in sidings close to the Royal Mail depot at Willesden? Are there any other such dumps up and down the country. Many thanks. Alan.

    GTR 365 to storage

    There were 9 Class 365s in the sidings at Northampton opposite the electric depot. I went north from by train Northampton yesterday and they are no longer there. Any body know what happened to them? They do not seem to be in the electric unit depot, although to be fair, views from the train are...

    Spotting books

    This is not strictly within this thread but I was given 3 trainspotting books at Rugby station on 19th July, shortly after the Network Rail New Measurement train came into Platform 2 from the South. There was another spotter filming the train and it was shortly after he left that I was handed...

    Class 365 units at Northampton

    In the sidings to the north of Northampton station there are 6 class 365 units stored. It is difficult to see them all from the train and visible access from outside the railway is impossible. I have been able to identify 365501,365507, 365531 and 365541. Does anyone have any idea as to the...

    What Local Law Would You Enact ?

    Also I think that buses that carry a message on their destination board that says "I'm Sorry I am not in service" should be taken to a bus garage and whipped until they truly apologise.

    What Local Law Would You Enact ?

    I think that shops that have a notice saying "In order to improve our service to customers, this shop will not open until 0930 on Tuesday" should be made to open at 0730 fr the rest of the week.

    67007

    I'm glad that is wasn't repainted because if it had been red, it wouldn't have had the large number on the body side, and I wouldn't have been able to identify it. I've been at this a long time. I had seen all the true Class 08's and 09' s by 1976. I only saw one of the D3117-D3126 series (all...

    I can tell you that the French ex-EWS Class 66 locomotives are based at Alizay (south of Rouen) and that is where most of the French Class 58s are stored.

    Class 66 in Poland

    I would also like to know the whereabouts of ex UK Class 66s in Poland. Are the ex-EWS locos to be found in different areas to the ex-Freightliner locos? Any help would be appreciated.

    Seating plans project

    I live in Northampton so we only have 350/1, 350/2 and 350/3 sets. You cannot reserve a seat. The arrangement of the seats in the 350/2s is 3 and 2 without tables in standard class. In my view they are totally unsuited to Euston to Birmingham services and should be restricted to local - all...
