The aggro has gone on for some time and the inevitable (?) consequence of a lack of agreement was revealed in the local press a few days ago.
Toby Is Well Pleased
The extended engine shed at Peterville Quarry Railway has been dumped in situ to check clearances and other work needed. It is looking good and its main residents, Toby and Henrietta, have expressed their approval.
Such is the power of nature, destined to procreate. Pity it didn't sprout at 4mm to the foot scale!
Hidden In Plain Sight
When fbb worked for Southern Vectis, his boss, Stuart Linn, was adamant that every bus timetable and leaflet should have a start date so people would know when a change would happen and/or had happened. He also expounded the need for an expiry date which is fine when a company runs a seasonal timetable change.
Less possible these days when changes seem to be always based on operator convenience and rarely on a sensible time to inform the passengers.
Northampton correspondent Alan sent this quick snap of the booklet for the prestigious Gold X4, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Peterborugh and asks, "spot the start date."
And well done London Midland for celebrating our Nation's Olympians by painting some of their station name-boards in gold.
More news bits and pieces tomorrow; mostly from the rail industry.
