Re: Top Times: UK light rail

Thanks for clarifying - I assume that you are also excluding the hybrid combination of straight and loop traversed when travelling Hythe-Hythe via Britannia Points and Dungeness on the fortunately-aforementioned RH&DR :-)

Scalable Vector Graphics. And TfL rather than TFL :-)

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Anyway, apologies to tangy for distracting from the question that started this thread. Only tracktakid responded before I caused havoc.

Re: Top Times: UK light rail

That was an impressive yet unexpected reaction - just think what I could have achieved if I had tried to do it deliberately! Thank you to xcooler123 for explaining, RJSRdg for amplifying, and apologies to michael_churchill and anyone else who was infuriated by my scurrilous implication that those wh...

Re: Top Times: UK light rail

It may be worth clarifying your definition of "light rail" - for example, the RH&DR was created under a pair of LROs in the 1920s under the 1896 Act et al, and the K&ESR and EKLR are both examples of "Colonel Stephens" railways created under the 1896 Act et al.

Re: Tube Challenge 1974

"I had intended running along the old Ongar section from about 3am" I know nothing about this specific area but, without wishing to be a killjoy, may I genuinely suggest that you consider the possibility of encountering dogs, shotguns, etc before behaving in such a suspicious manner at 3am in an iso...

Re: Iain's Tram Trials and Tribulations

Damn, you've overtaken me! I'm very concerned to see your use of a word like "pelted" - my "brisk strolls" definitely aren't in your league! Well done with the Church Street/Centrale move (perhaps inspired by Geoff's recent video?) - I haven't tried it yet. More significantly, I'm still trying to ge...
