    Preston's Lynx

    Travelling on the 695 every day this week, I've noticed that every journey has been operated by the much smaller Versas and Solos. Anyone know why the Lynx isn't in operation?

    London Underground Challenge Today (01/06/2013)

    Was anyone on here attempting the Tube Challenge today perchance? There were a few people on my train from Camden Town to Euston who were attempting it today. If it was any of you onboard, how did it go? And thanks for making me laugh with your antics at Mornington Crescent.

    Northern Rail - Halifax Eureka Carriage

    I was passing through Halifax station today and saw a carriage in Northern Rail livery. It seemed much like a Mk3 but I'm not exactly sure. It definitely wasn't a 158 or any other Sprinter as such. I don't have any pictures and I'm gutted that I do, but I've searched on Google and nothing...

    Buses to be fitted with wifi

    As you may know there have been a number of buses that have been recently fitted with wifi. I've noticed this on the Stagecoach services 40 and 41 and I think 125/126. Does anyone know why these are, when they were fitted with wifi, who was responsible (at least one 125 driver is a millionaire)...

    Hybrid Versas on country routes?

    My school bus - the Preston Bus 695 Cadley - Lea Town will need to be Versa operated on 19th due to a large number of suitcases that will be onboard; the current Lynx cannot cater for this. However, what are Versas like on country roads, and what about the hybrid version which Preston Bus...

    London - Cable Cars, Apsley and drama at Leeds

    I travelled to London on the non-stop service from Preston (the 1550 if I should not be mistaken) on Sunday, for your convienience the 28th of October.

    Places in and around London for photos/videos

    I intend to catch some videos of trains in and around London later this month for my YouTube. I've cleared Clapham Junction and would not like to go there again just because of how hard it is to fight through the crowds of people between the SWT and Southern platforms, and wouldn't trust a...

    Optare Metroriders Double Querie

    Are there any left in operation or preservation? They used to be my main bus and I really miss them. Secondly, does anyone have any pictures of Metroriders (or even Solos) that say '29' or '30' on the front operating with Preston Bus? They no longer operate and I would like to see them again.

    Preston [PRE] to Boston [BSN]

    On Saturday morning, I will be travelling from Preston to Boston and on Sunday evening the return. Time is no problem, however I'd like to take East Coast as a preference. The best I've got so far is here but some fares haven't shown up and £57.30 does not seem cheap enough to me. I know it's...

    Rose Grove potential?

    I was wondering about the Rose Grove station in the suburbs of Burnley. Trains from Leeds and York rocket through the station with no announcement (but there's Celia(?) on all the other announcements) and I was amazed at how busy it was. Could there be potential for York services to make a call...

    Preston to London: A dilemma

    On the 31st of July I intend to travel to London to do some videoing of trains in the area and am returning on the 1st of August. I would like to know a cheap way to get there that takes less than about 3 hours 30 - I would not like a stopper train but still need a cheap fare. Which way...

    Plans for a Preston-Brighton cycle

    I'm looking at a cycling route for a sponsored Preston-Brighton cycle but I can't actually find a calculator or cycle route with rests and appropriate hotels I can stay at. Could somebody help me devise a route for Preston-Brighton cycling along flat land? I expect it to take a few days and if...

    Flooding at Stratford Regional

    The Central Line is partially suspended between Bethnal Green and Leytonstone due to flooding at Stratford Regional. The one thing that concerns me about this is the fact that with the Olympics now a few weeks away, will there be flooding at Stratford and will it be safe? I know that Greater...
