    Midland Metro T69s?

    The new Urbos 3 trams are well into their deployment, but what will become of the old T69s? Apparently 01, 03, 04, and 07 have gone to the 'tram test centre' at Long Marston, according to Wiki. I know it's a bit late to ask.

    Bham Moor St disused bay platforms

    Hello all, Apologies if this has been done to death or discussed elsewhere. My question is: Is it monumentally shortsighted of Chiltern or whomever to essentially sever Platform 4 from the main line, and is it inevitable that growing amounts of traffic will require it to be re-opened in...

    Most 'endangered' units/locos?

    Hello all, What is/are, in your opinions, the rolling stock with the least amount of time left? I'm weighing up the next day out and am wondering what's the best thing to focus on in terms of having less time to photograph it, e.g. 142s or EC HSTs. Hope everyone had a great Christmas...

    Any more DMUs?

    Simply put, will there ever be another order for a fleet of DMUs? Not counting bi-modes or anything. Or to cast the net further, for how many more years could there be cases for ordering more DMUs? There's probably a wealth of information I've bypassed through ignorance, forgive me. Cheers.

    Hi all, Do any of you happen to see Freightmaster books in the shops these days? I recall seeing them in Ian Allan shops and on-station WHSmiths before, but not in recent times. Is it only possible to buy the books straight from FM Publishing now? Cheers.
