    I have been wondering for some time about when a train is stopping for a station. How much brake does the driver put on when he/she comes to the braking point for a station?

    Quick question about hartford.

    Hi all. I'm just wondering if Hartford (Cheshire) is a good place to get some photos as opposed to Acton Bridge because for me Hartford would be easier to get to. Thanks in advance. Callum.
