Actually someone mentioned the new 755 trains when I was at the Salt Mine yesterday, and I've just twigged what's happened here. RAIB have given us some clues in their initial...

Thanks for the link Tony.

That would really have been quite a sight. I didn't realise that we had 2 large US locos in this country.

Hopefully they can run the event successfully in Nov.

Looking at the aerial photo of South Lynn station, I hadn't realised just how close to the river it was.

I'm hoping to fly my drone round there soon, before the new...

Hi Steve, you've dug up another interesting one. :)



So there's a significant chink in the PTC armour.

I believe that the big yellow snow plough is a clue. Do you usually get much snow in Framingham?

Hi Rick.

Thanks for the pics, I love those thumping great American locos.

Great pictures Rick.

Presumably the red lenses are Wig-Wags from road crossings.

I think that if I were there I'd be tempted to lift a couple for my garage.

Actually, I've found it on Youtube today. So if anyone has missed it, just search for it under 'Fully fitted freight'.

It's been split into two parts for some reason.

That's not good. At least they stopped well short of each other. :(

Wow, that's a question. I think it's a matter of style. A station is really just a place where you wait for trains - hopefully without getting cold or wet.
