    Carlisle Station Improvements

    Yes, lets hope it does reopen, there are too many pubs that have closed down in recent years, it always makes me sad when I go past one. However, I did get to spend 4 hours having drinks and a good lunch at the Station Inn by Ribblehead Viaduct a few days ago too. Owing to the rail timetables...

    Will do. I think, infact, the day I am going on that trip/train is the 19th July, when hopefully a few more restrictions may be lifted, so perhaps I can get a quick glass of something there? :)

    Carlisle Station Improvements

    That does look good, I do like Carlisle Station, usually because I am doing one of scenic rail journeys to / from there and sometimes by Steam or Diesel Charter which are even better. (I may be doing the HST Staycation Express in a few weeks :D )

    WIMBLEDON RAILWAY STATION LIFTS

    I think I read it in one of the Tabloids, so perhaps not the most reliable source of information. I have looked on SWR website and it is not mentioned there.

    St Pancras - no room at the Inn

    I think only having 4 platforms for MML/EMR/EMT was a bit short-sighted.

    Welland, Harringworth & Bennerley Viaduct (s)

    Good morning, after watching a recent TV programme about the Welland Viaduct, I was wondering if it is also known as the Harringworth viaduct? are they one and the same structure, or are they 2 different viaducts? I don't think the line these are on is very busy these days? The same programme...

    Trivia: most underwhelming end to a main route?

    Hopefully that may become a through station at some time in the future if they ever build - rebuild the rest of the route to Carlisle. 1615707953 (I quite liked my trip with them a couple of years ago to Bradford, I was not in a hurry, the journey from when the train turns off from the main EC...
