Line and station closures[ edit ] Freshwater on the Isle of Wight closed in The “Bluebell line” between East Grinstead and Lewes closed between and Sheffield Park became part of the Bluebell Railway preserved line. The Beeching Axe severely cut the route mileage of most regions but the Southern Region escaped major losses in the London commuter area due to high passenger numbers on its frequent suburban services. The line between Blackfriars and Farringdon was also closed in the s but was reopened in the s. Holborn Viaduct in central London closed in As part of the upgrading of the reopened Blackfriars—Farringdon line it was replaced by City Thameslink station which occupies the same site, at a lower level. As a contrast, Waterloo station had been extensively refurbished and expanded to allow for the development of the Eurostar terminal. These platforms will be turned over to domestic services as international services have moved to St Pancras railway station.

Purple Train: A Look At Crossrail’s Rolling Stock
Above Meath Green near Horley , the terrace corresponds to the flood plain of the river, however from this point downstream to Brockham, the river cuts a narrow trench no more than m wide. A similar trench is runs up several of the Mole’s tributaries, notably along Deanoak Brook which follows a local strike. The presence of the trench protects the land from flooding rendering it suitable for agriculture. The bedrock is permeable chalk and the water table lies permanently below the level of the riverbed, allowing water to drain out of the river through swallow holes in the bed and banks.

A little edge chipping on two examples and one is a little dusty, good otherwise. It was never owned by the LNER. However, following nationalisation it was transferred to the Eastern Region of British Railways. Initially, tickets were ordered from the former LNER printing works, many, like this example, being produced with the old company title. Some of the tickets are to the same destinations, but are in different print styles. Issued 3rd singles from Neath to Talgarth Mid.
Five of the tickets have dates in and stamped on the backs. The ticket is of the third and last type used by the Company. In most cases, the backs of the pages are endorsed with the years in which the tickets were issued. A 3rd Parly single from Kingussie to Broomhill. Issued whole comprising 1st singles from London Euston to Huyton , St. The lot also includes an early unused 3rd single from Wansford to Colwich with company monogram on the back.
A collection of 40 severed halves. Includes a variety of types and a good selection of closed stations, both as origins and destinations.

The Southern Region was a region of British Railways from until when railways were re-privatised. The region ceased to be an operating unit in its own right in the s. The region covered south London, southern England and the south coast, including the busy commuter belt areas of Kent, Sussex and region was largely based upon the former Southern Railway area.
If the Olympics has taught me one thing it is that there is a lot of confusion about how to use both Oyster and a paper ticket on a journey from outside London. Other potentially useful stations are just one stop outside the Oyster area eg Epsom or Potters Bar. When you want to use a Travelcard on Oyster A travelcard on Oyster is exactly the same as a travelcard on paper. There is no penalty for not touching in or out providing the whole journey on the Oyster card is within the zones covered by the travelcard.
There is also no longer a requirement for the train to stop where you switch from one ticket to another from Oct 1st All you need to ensure is that the tickets cover the whole journey. If your paper ticket is between two named stations then one of them must be within the outer zone of your travelcard or a dual zoned station with one zone covered. If your paper ticket is to a boundary zone or includes zones itself then the zones must be adjacent. As examples, the following are all valid with a zone travelcard on the Oyster card: A single or return to or from boundary zone 2.
A single or return to or from Clapham Junction zone 2.

In the early 20th century several experimental machines were built with petrol engines, the NER and the LBSCR each had at least one 4-wheel petrol railcars, I have not yet traced any details on these units other than the number for an NER car which was No. Several conversions based on commercial bus chassis were employed on the light railways and naturally there were experiments with this form of traction on the major lines as well. The LMS purchased a small fleet I think it was three of four wheeled railcars from Leyland in about , numbered to
We last looked at Crossrail’s rolling stock when the contract was awarded to Bombardier. Now TfL have made the first digital images of their new trains available to the public. Bombardier won the contract, which is for both the supply of the 66 trains required and the running of Old Oak Common.
I was also using Premarin but have stopped as I am now in treatment for breast cancer. Part of my treatment will be taking an estrogen blocker for several years. I am anticipating additional issues with dryness, etc. Thank you for addressing these kinds of issues naturally and for continuing to evolve your product line. VM is an enormous help! I tell others about Yes all the time. The challenge is in how long it takes for shipments to arrive in Canada.
I realize that part of the equation is muchlynout of your hands but speaks to the need to have more places here in Canada who sell your product. So far I have found one Canadian website that carries your product, but they have been sold out of the VM for quite some time now: Wishing you great success in continued uptake outside of the UK. Your product is a game changer!
It is really versatile and has really improved our lovemaking.

As in the standard timetable, some passenger trains split and join here. With a total of trains to handle, the signalman is kept busy! Most trains are of course formed of d. Barnham Summer Weekday A welcome addition for this popular simulation, this timetable goes back to Coronation year. The frequent Southern Electric service was formed of an earlier generation of stock dating back to the thirties.
Best of all, though, is the wide range of steam traction to be seen at work on passenger and freight services.

In one case, one of three occupants in a white van seen in Mill Lane called at two houses. In one incident the caller virtually demanded to clean the driveway, using the fact that he had done the next door neighbour’s driveway to gain authenticity. Another white van ex British Gas vehicle was picked up by residents in The limes with the occupants acting suspiciously. As in the other incidents, the callers got short shrift. However, in another incident in London Road involving the same vehicle, there were only young people in the house at the time the call was made, and the caller banged on the door and windows in an intimidating manner.
Thankfully the young people did not open the door. If you are intending to leave your young folk in the house whilst popping out, please instil in them the need to be vigilant when anybody approaches the property. The key message is ,”Don’t answer the door! In each case, the index numbers were passed to police for Intelligence purposes. This has resulted in substantial financial losses for several schools that have fallen victim to this type of fraud It is open to the general public but primarily is there to help those families who may be struggling financially and in need of essential furniture or household goods.
Extending the Bakerloo: It’s Not About Transport
Retired railwaymen and steam fans gathered at Guildford railway station on Farnham Road bridge on Sunday July 9 for the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate Guildford’s engine shed that closed exactly 50 years ago. In his speech to around 40 people who gathered at the pedestrian entrance to the car park, Geoff Burch said – ‘It doesn’t seem that long ago when Pat Kinsella and I departed from here aboard our respective locomotives BR Standard Class 5 Nos and to go light-engines to Salisbury, not forgetting the other drivers and firemen who left here that day.
This occasion was originally an idea of another old steam colleague, Bill Moore, who thought it would be a good idea for a few of us to meet up here and go for a drink afterwards. However, Bill Bunce, Pat Kinsella and I put our heads together and came up with an idea which has ended up a full-blown plaque unveiling ceremony! Also I must thank the following people who have generously made donations towards the costs of the plaque; without them, it wouldn’t have been possible:

The latest consultation report on doing this has now been published. Less is more We have said it before but, in the transport field, it often seems that the less important something is the more interest it attracts. Trams are a consistently hot topic, and yet they carry the same number of passenger journeys as just the two busiest bus routes in the capital. A recent article on this website on the Oxted lines generated over comments and nearly all were about the lightly used branch to Uckfield and very few about the busier and more important one to East Grinstead.
It seems to be the same on the Underground. So it goes with the Bakerloo. It is the next least busy Tube line at least if you regard the Sub Surface Railway as one entity and yet an article on proposals to extend it has currently attracted over comments. A lot of the reason behind the enthusiasm for small things is due to the possibility of seeing them grow. The idea of railway lines being extended always attracts interest and, as far as the Tube goes, the Bakerloo line is perhaps the only one left with a realistic possibility of being extended.
To that end we now look in detail at the latest consultation report on proposals to extend the Bakerloo line. With the modern democratic ideal that all consultation suggestions have to be considered and responded to, no matter how daft, we have reports where the message that it was meant to convey is in danger of becoming lost. Here, the three individuals who TfL confirm suggested the Bakerloo should be extended to Gatwick Airport should perhaps step away from their respective computers and take a long, hard look at themselves.
