Re: How about a MC New Years Resolution!

Re: RO Stock Changes - Exported Locomotives Summaries

Do forum members find these summaries useful?. Yes, I do. I haven't yet decided whether to then continue with locomotives sent to France and Spain for construction work on their high speed lines.

Re: Stock Changes - Do members still update books using them

Re: Diesel Dilemmas updates

Roger Harris quotes that "12071 was cut up by Coopers Metals at SYPS and the remains were taken to Coopers Metals, Attercli...
