Well that is a good start James.
I kinda rebelled from all things Choo-Choo as it was my dad's career path not mine.
Now he is gone i seem to have developed an urge to see and do more about rail...
I must confess i took the train to his funeral in hartlepool and i think it was the first train ride in over 20 years. I was actually surprised how different, clean and comfortable it is to travel by train now ....
Well till you get to Newcastle and get on them little shuttle trains out to hartlepool...
Jesus thought i was gonna get a set of pedals on that bugger...

Looking forward to what that railway thread will develop into well before they introduce anti terror measures it should be good...

Smashing find ... Reminded me of Neil Young busking in the central video but the buggers at YouTube have take it off.

Due to bad editing/continuity, or just plain ignorance, the Martin Scorsese documentary that this clip came from gave the false impression that it was Manchester.

Here is a challenge to all, not just railway enthusiasts, inspired by a recent post on another thread.
Find the shortest route from each of the four Glasgow Terminus stations to the other without reversing.  All lines closed/open can be used
So we are looking for the route from Glasgow Central to Glasgow St Enoch, Queen Street etc.
The easiest one is from Central to Buchanan Street, leaving Central by the main line to Rutherglen, then by Rutherglen West Junction, Strathclyde Junction, Dalmarnock (High Level), Parkhead Forge, Robroyston West Junction, Milton Junction and into Buchanan St.  By my reckoning this is the only one that can be done without leaving he city boundaries!!

Good idea.  

I can think of another one that doesn't leave the city boundaries. St Enoch to
Queen Street. St Enoch platfoms 1 or 2, northeast to Saltmarket Junction(?), up
through Belgrove, turn left up the Springburn branch, through Springburn and
then turn left along the Cowlairs Chord into QS High Level.

Now wouldn't it be good to use the aerial photos to show how this can be done.

If the coverage allows

Although I haven't got a clue where all the trains go this would be great in Google Earth.
