Just a thought. As hotels have the "Star" rating (one to seven stars), and when stars die, they can collapse to black holes. Should the bad to REALLY bad ones be rated by one to seven black holes???

At the Bluebell Railway, they're part way through building a new Loco as well as several rebuilds. That's all at Sheffield Park, there are other rebuilds of rolling stock at the other locations.

The new build has the chassis built and some of the firebox and cab, but I couldn't take good photos as there was a fund-raising book and memorabilia sale and auction on. There were no clear shots of anything below shoulder height, unfortunately.

Lots going on there, the museum is well worth a visit, and they are now running meal trains with UK Pullman carriages, and a full menu (at a price!).

My wife and I both enjoyed the day out, as most of the staff semed to like chatting with the passengers.


As for the Watercress line, we've been there and had a short trip along the track once last year. The Romney Hythe & Dymchurch railway I haven't been on since I was about 10 or 11 (early 1960's), so I don't know what it's like now.

Only just spoted that I've won.

Thanks for the congrats.

I'm rather busy today, and only on a slow connection. So if you can wait I'll try to post tomorrow.

If you can't wait, I'll understand if someone else takes the baton.

I had a day out at the Bluebell Railway today. I took some photos and videos.

If people would like, I can post a link to them after I get to a reasonably fast internet connection.

most of these wingman are trashing several gig of data between them i have sent them P.M's don't expect to here from them , i just hope they stop


I had the 7337318 as a wingman two days ago and did a print screen. They had 4116 wu, 99.9% of which were overflows. 12 were valid and of the valid wu, one was an overflow!



It looks like some of these errant guys might even be going out of their way to sabotage some science, building and configuring rigs that intentionally trash WUs as fast as possible!
