I'm a pragmatic foamer and I say steam is an outdated relic that can only be used for heritage runs and populating museums.

It's all about what YOU like, not what others like. Railfanning is about going our and doing something you enjoy. People have their own opinions, and they're more than welcome to express them. Although just because someone has a certain opinion doesn't make it more valid than anyone elses.

>The new Peppercorn class A1 pacificfs 1940s technology was able to withstand the snow and ice that brought much of Southern England to a standstill and hauled eThe Cathedrals Expressf from London Victoria to Dover and back. On the second trip Tornado was able to rescue around 100 commuters who had been left stranded by moreemodern' trains, dropping them off at stations en-route.

>who had been left stranded by moreemodern' trains,

Yeah, things are great when you only have one train set and don't have to worry about where all your stock and crew are against where they need to be.

>> No.122253  

IIRC, that case had nothing to do with mislaid trains or drivers. It was a wet-turned-freezing snowstorm that blanketed the power rails and starved the trains of electricity. Some of the area has since been converted to 25kV OHL so no more ogling Eurostars running on third-rail power except on Youtube.

... which would cause any trains and their crews out and about to get stuck, and consequently not end up where they need to be at the time they need to be there.

>> No.122264  

The storm was still the primary cause in that case.

These are really pig disgusting. They're only slightly better looking than this short-bus-riding abortion, which itself is a cross between a postal van and that annoying autistic kid with a bowl haircut in your school who wore a reflective vest every day and would start screaming if anyone suggested he not wear it.

Honestly Talgo, spend your Malaga budget on a team of halfway competent designers. I'm not sorry-- these things are so ugly that they're offensive.

Yes but I'll take more ugly Talgo over no new Talgo at all. I wish they had just copied off the Series VI Talgo, but there you have it. Who knows, maybe eventually they will both hit trucks and be demolished and then they will swap Ina regular flat-ended car and we can have NPCU's.

More than one has bitched about how Christmas promotions are coming early and earlier each year.

So Snail decided to be an ass jump on the bandwagon by putting the Christmas stuff early.

Come to think about it, this might not be so bad after all.

Just found out this came out last month and I totally missed it. I have a few good friends who make appearances in this. Two have died since filming began, one was filmed before his death, idk if the footage was used tho. The other was not filmed at all. He just happen to be in the area during some filming.
