    Trying To Find Out Information About Some Very Early Trevithick-1 Locos

    Not the original game. In Railroad Tycoon 2 you start off in about 1805 with a really slow loco known as a Trevithick-1 before Stephenson's Rocket comes along in 1829. This must have been one of the first locos ever. Apparently they did exist in real life from 1804. If it's the one I'm...

    Covid restrictions to end on 19th July

    Speaking as someone who's exempt from wearing face masks I think they should be made optional now. I was on the North York Moors railway a couple of weeks ago and some people took them off when sitting down in the carriage. Other people seem to love wearing the masks. I've had people even...

    Wensleydale Railway - Onwards to Castle Bolton & Aysgarth??

    Would have been good to see them use Northallerton West in use so people could travel from the East Coast Mainline to Garsdale. I'm sure they did it not too long ago around 2016. It was closed again due to a collision.

    Coronavirus virus effect on Heritage lines Summer 2020

    Any ideas on when heritage railways will reopen? I can only guess it will be about August this summer and a maximum of around 10 people per carriage allowed. Some may open before others too. Smaller lines such as The Middleton Railway in Leeds might stay closed until next year.

    I'm a big fan of dance music and it's just come to mind that there's a music video filmed in what I think is London Kings Cross station. It's called Take Me Away by the dance group Culture Beat if you try searching for it through YouTube. It shows footage speeded up of the 125s in their...

    Advice On Getting The Tram Train To Rotherham

    Yes the thread has been put in the right context now. I'm always unsure about where and what to post but that's what I meant. Lines that have electric wires above them but have never seen any electric traction like platform 8 in York.

    Trivia: lines that are never used by electric traction

    One that comes to mind is platform 8 in York Railway Station. The line is electrified but I've never seen an electric loco using it since about 1996 when I first remember coming there. Only the Harrogate line trains. The platform probably could not fit a 225 from York to Edinburgh on.
