Talking to staff this week they're expecting to be shut by Christmas, everything is reduced by 20% at the moment and the website is talking about an 'everything must go sale' but date not yet ann...

Re: The Railway Executive

Thanks to all who replied on this one. I had a vague idea that it was in the area that D605eagle said but wasn’t sure. Both examples I’ Seen have been dated in the 1950’s so that could fit.

The Railway Executive

Hi All

I have, on two occasions, found plates on preserved industrial locomotives inscribed "Registered by The Railway Executive".
Is anyone able to explain the significance of these plates please?

Great pics Nick, love the variety. Glad Guy arrived in one piece.

Re: Wordsworth Scale Converter

I'd never noticed this on Mikes site before (always rushing to his kits), I've just downloaded it and can see it being really useful.

Thanks Mike and Tony and Bufferstop for bringing it to my attention.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

It was decided that the safest place for an overnight stop for such a prestigeous visiter would be on shed outside the shed master's office. So later in the day Guy was delivered there with the other shed traffic. https://image.ibb.co/gbet0G/Z01J01.jpg George in the van doesn't seem impressed with i...
