Re: WR HST Formations 1976-78

I am still in search of HST observations on the WR during 1976-78 as outlined in my original post. A trip to the RCTS Archive produced a small amount of new information but I wonder if any new members to the Forum might be able to assist. My contact details remain the same, and any help would be muc...

Re: Library

Brilliant news, and well done to all those who have worked hard to make it happen. Are there any more details about the official opening?

Re: West Wales Week Rail Rover Ticket Summer 1977

Interesting Ian, I have recorded 43025/53 (253 026) on 13.08.77, working the 13.15 Paddington-Swansea and 16.43 return on 13.08.77. If it worked to diagram it would have started the day ecs Canton-Swansea for the 09.43 to Paddington. I have W43006 and W43007 on separate sets. As mentioned previously...

Re: West Wales Week Rail Rover Ticket Summer 1977

Thanks for the clarification Ian. The only thing I can add is that W43006/7 were paired together on 08.08.77, but W43007 was stopped for a Turbocharger change on 09.08.77. On 10.08.77 I have record of 253 003 formed with W43007/23 on the 12.15 Paddington-Swansea. On 11.08.77 the set worked the 08.43...

Re: West Wales Week Rail Rover Ticket Summer 1977

Many thanks with all your hard work on this thread Ian. I know it's not easy trawling through old notebooks, but your hard work has helped me fill some significant gaps in my HST formations/workings archive. Just one question and it probably is due to a "typo" but on 12th August you have both 43054/...

Re: West Wales Week Rail Rover Ticket Summer 1977

Hi Ian, I have found this thread really interesting. Your detailed notes showing how much has changed over the years in terms of traction, operating practice and cost of travel. My main area of interest is in early WR HST operation (76/77/78), and I am always on the look out for new information. Eve...
