I'm too young to remember steam trains, but the Blue Pullman and the Western Region diesel hydraulics (Westerns and Warships) are my childhood memories personified. I'll show this to my 87-year-old dad who's sure to enjoy it, and is clearly old enough to remember steam.
Maybe an idea to avoid the Hornsbridge Island if you can. A railway coach being transported has hit the bridge. Long delays in the area.
This railway coach is believed to be used in the filming of the new Tom Cruise movie Mission Impossible 8 currently being shot in Stoney Middleton.
Remember going to the open day there October 91.
Calling all train aficionados: Asakusa Tobu Hotel is celebrating its first anniversary by installing a Tobu Railway simulator in one of its rooms.
Available only during the day for a limited time, the room is even decked out in station signages and train-themed bedding to give trainspotters a fully immersive experience.
Reminds me of when I was involved in the construction of a new signalling and training centre for SWT there was a room with 4 huge train simulators in it.Who's up for this?
