Re: Charter trains at Shrub Hill 22 April 2022.

Excellent 37 action. And to think there used to be loads of them based about 300 yards away from where I now live. Just one semi-permanent 66 now!

Thursday evening, the Duchess heads...

You can still get a train from Worcester to Malvern up to about 11pm, West Midlands Trains at least must be happy to see this!

Re: Royal Windsor Statesman 13 April 2022

Good to see Tim.
In a way I always feel its a kind of shame so many trains are 'top and tailed' as there are so many places where run-round facilities no longer exist.
