Thanks for that, watched it and thought it very good.  Co-incidently (or not), immediately after it was was  Timeshift programme entitled "The Joy of (Train) Sets", which was also very good.  A bit of Pete Waterman's layout was featured along with quite a bit of model railway history from about the 1860's onwards.

G'day All, :hellosign:

We get Great British Rail Journeys, Extreme Rail Journeys ,Coastal Rail Journeys and Great American Rail Journeys
plus a new one Walking British Lost Railways which is a really interesting one down here on Free to Air T V
Australian T V. I probably haven't got the titles 100% correct :hmmm: but I'm sure you know which is which, all good shows.
We don't have pay to view T V, services like Foxtell etc, as we don't bother watching a huge amount of T V. Bloody Retirement!! neither of us would have time to go to work even if we were supposed to.
Neither of us Babysit G/Kids as the 3 Lads are all in their Teens and older so I'm Buggered if I know where the time goes but at least we are enjoying our selves .Although my Margaret is the Social Butterfly of the two of us.
Cheers from Australia, Denis. :beers:

Its reported elsewhere they have started recording the next series of " The Great Model Railway Challenge". Supposedly bigger and better as the first was such a success for Channel 5.

Each of eight program will be a hour and a quarter. This is supposed to enable them to include more coverage of how things are done. Apparently lots of this sort of thing was edited out last time.

Hi Railwaygun,

Thanks for the heads up. Recorded and looking forward to it. Don't know much about Canfranc station except that it's huge for such an out of the way place so should be interesting.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Stumbled across a railway related program the other night on the history channel whilst aimlessly flicking channels.
"Train Truckers"
About a haulage company in charge of moving various heritage locomotives and modern ones around the uk. Not 100% about railways but I enjoyed  :)

 :hellosign:
G'day All,
I trust everyone is fit, well and happy. I wish I was fit enough to fly long distances again but  I'm not these days which is a shame as you lot seem to have two things Australia hasn't got. That is more Train shows on T V  :claphappy: and heaps of vintage Steam Trains all over the place. It makes me so angry  :veryangry: that our Tight A  :censored: Federal Government of both LNP and Labor sides will never fund properly Heritage Railways down here in Australia.
For some reason no one can see the huge Tourist Potential so when it comes to Steam Railways here we are on a diet.
I wish you All well and please stay safe in these turbulent times.
Cheers, Denis May

I believe most, if not all heritage railways here in the UK are self supporting financially and are typically manned by a majority of volunteers, with just a few on the payroll.  Without those volunteers, god bless 'em, and the paying public, most of our preserved railways sadly wouldn't survive.
Cheers, Trev.
