Re: Clapham Junction

The London end of P9/10 is probably best, sitting in the middle of the station. With reasonable eyesight you should be able to cover all running lines for spotting and photography

Ian Allan bookshop - Manchester

Readers may be interested (and even saddened) to know that the Ian Allan bookshop at Manchester Piccadilly is to close. Knowing that it was imminent, I went in there earlier today, and it appears it will close around the end of the month. Big sale on as expected, and stock running down quickly. This...

Re: Scotrail Class 170 at Stewarts lane

Cant help on which one for sure, but it will be one of 421 through to 424 as these four have transferred to Southern for conversion to 171s.

Based on a thread on ukrailforums, 423 was observed leaving Stewarts Lane for Selhurst on 22 September so this is likely but clearly not conclusive.

From the Dean Forest Railway:
Mark II TSO 5777 has been cut up, with the bogies retained by the DFR
Mark I RMB 1803 has returned, and was in Platform 1 at Norchard.

Thanks to Nigel Farebrother for sourcing this information yesterday.
