DB revives old ‘Stegosaurus’ wagons.

Covered steel wagons – codenamed BYA and probably dormant since prehistoric times, have been brought back to life by scientists at DB Cargo UK, working in their secret facility deep in the tropical jungles of Stoke on Trent.

Great find, thanks Philip.

It always cheers me to see FOCs finding new workflows, especially in these difficult times.

Cheers, John.

Coil steel on wagons appeared on tv here recently, being mentioned in the ongoing Chinese embargo dramas.
Them wagons had buffers, so I was wondering just where the video was taken.
A tropical jungle in Stoke on Trent, you have me very envious.
NOTHING tropical here during our miserable winter.
No chance of my getting to Stoke on Trent.
No chance of my getting out of the local government area.
This region is now totally surrounded by plague lockdown.
NO train chasing, not much of anything going on, just hiding in the hovel.
Steve.

Ta Hereward,
I have been hovering, but not doing much commenting.
You might need to accept the cookies to be able to view that actual article.
That came up for me, accept cookies in a small box over the blurred page.
Bathurst ain't plagued as yet, but things are not going well in smog hollow.
I am hiding in me hovel only venturing out one day per week to hunter gatherer.
Got me second Astra jab in 8 days time.
But, they want jabs urgently in smog hollow, even reducing the period down to 6 weeks for the second jab for them.
Out here we are remaining on the 12 week period.
Steve.

G'day again,
Certain web pages today are protected from copy.
Especially News Media etc.
OR, your computer cannot print the type of data.
You may need to do a Print Screen or multiples of the page to save it.
But, that becomes an image and is not easy to print as is text.
Steve.

Thanks Steve - you wouldn't think I would have to struggle; my daughter has a Bsc degree in Computer Science and my son is a computer technician, but they are always too busy.

More proposed re-use of redundant rolling stock.

Eversholt, the rolling stock leasing company, has released more details of its project to convert redundant passenger units into high-speed light goods trains. The intention is to serve the fast-developing logistics and delivery market. The project is codenamed, Swift.
