Martin, I read a lot of the dialogue in this Forum, much of which is very helpful. Most, however, is rather intimadating for a newbie - especially one from outside the UK. I DO hope to learn more about the history of the British rail system and the equipment operating on it, but I'll never be able to enter into the dialogue of those who are so well informed.

Can anyone tell me if Warwick was in the GWR system?

Warwick was a GWR station just West of Leaming Spa General.  There was also Leamington Spa Milverton (for Warwick) which was on the LMS line from Leamington Spa Avenue to Kenilworth and Coventry.  Warwick station was at the foot of Hatton Bank and was only a local station, so the UP expresses thundered through it, usually with the brakes full on, hoping to stop at Leamington Spa General.
With kind regards

Leamington Spa General.

Welcome Leon. We're always happy to answer any questions although we each have our individual areas of specific interest and knowledge.

I'm very sorry to hear this, Martin and hope that the antibiotics sort it out.

I'm in Berwick-upon-Tweed tomorrow on 1:1 scale (or is it gauge?!) railway business.  When this is complete, I'll have a 'swift half' (or two) overlooking the Tweed and toast your return to full health.  That first glass of red wine after you have finished with the antibiotics will be simply wonderful...

Best wishes.

John


I did as I promised (hope you felt better immediately afterwards).  I also took a photograph for you as I know you like fully scenic layouts.



I think the join between the two viaduct kits has been nicely done, but the single fat pier in the middle rather gives the game away!

With all good wishes.

Many thanks for the good wishes everyone and a fabulous photo John.
The leg feels much better today (already) but still looks as if itís been chewed then microwaved.
Anyway....3 days in with no alcohol so far.

Is the chewing from lack of alcohol? ;D

Lovely photo - the home town. Amazing how many people say "wow" on the train when approaching Berwick from the south and the bay opens up with the view over to the town walls. Just a shame about the state of the high street but the bottom end of the town is very vibrant and makes up for it!

Berwick is a lovely town. The border bridge always seemed big to me when I was a kid, but it's still good to see a pic.  :thumbsup:

Had a few beers there a few years ago.

I didn't realise the leg problem was real! Sorry!  :-[

Hope all is going well.  :beers:

A rare glimpse of the acticity in and around Trepol Bay harbour this morning as a prarie tank works its short train having very cautiously descended the incline down from the main line.
Meanwhile a Standard 5 departs the station with a special working towards Wadebridge.
