Bury Bolton Street: Interior of Bury South signal box taken during a supervised visit on 25th March 2017 with kind permission of the ELR. This view looks south along the old electric line towards Buckley Wells sheds. The operational Heywood line runs behind. After closure in 1980 this box became little more than a shell and everything in this picture is new, including the 65 lever frame. The few white levers illustrate that the vast majority in the frame are operational and the whole box is a credit to the Signalling Department of the East Lancashire Railway.

York Place [Tram]: An Edinburgh tram stands at the current city terminus in York Place on 24 March 2017 ready to form the next service to Edinburgh Airport. View from the top deck of a bus, with Leith Walk straight ahead. The case for extension of the network south, in line with the original plans, is currently under debate. [See image 16868]
Edinburgh Trams
John Furnevel [24/03/2017]


Edinburgh Gateway: The street approach to seen on 27/03/2017. The tram stop is on the left with the station on the right. A distinct lack of people around, as is my experience of this place so far. Give it time, though ...

Shotts: The replacement overbridge taking shape at Station Road in March 2017, seen from platform 1 as 158711 departs from platform 2 on the 0954 Edinburgh service. Notice the yellow SmartTulip growing in the barrel on the left. Access by kind permission of Abellio ScotRail.
Cleland and Midcalder Line (Caledonian Railway)
Colin McDonald [24/03/2017]


Shotts: It would appear unlikely that any electrification clearance issues will arise with the new Station Road overbridge, and it might even prove suitable for the former Transport Minister^s proposed double decker trains. [See image 56367] for a similar photograph of the previous bridge.
Cleland and Midcalder Line (Caledonian Railway)
Colin McDonald [24/03/2017]


Eden Brows: A Class 142 on an Appleby to Carlisle ecs move (suspected to be for route refreshing) passes the site of the landslip at Eden Brows on 25 March 2017. This is the second day that these runs have taken place. The DMU is crossing the section where the slip occurred and where Network Rail has spent the past year rebuilding the trackbed and there is now a substantial retaining wall and piles beneath to support the line. The line is scheduled to reopen to passenger traffic on 31 March 2017 with Flying Scotsman hauling the reopening special.

Lancaster: On 20th March the sound from 37419 would certainly draw the attention of any onlookers as it crosses Carlisle Bridge accelerating away from Lancaster with a train for Barrow-in-Furness.
Lancaster and Carlisle Railway
Malcolm Chattwood [20/03/2017]

Blackburn King Street Depot: Galligreaves St bridge, on the short Blackburn King St spur, has been rebuilt as part of the construction of the new Northern DMU depot. Latterly the location of Blackburn Coal Concentration Depot [See image 21404] King St has been closed for many years but will soon see a brand new servicing depot for the new Class 195 trains that are on order. This view looks east and the depot will be on the left with the bridge carrying the link to the main line near Blackburn station. [Ref query 985]

Bury Bolton Street: The steam heating boiler of 40106 Atlantic Conveyor was completed and passed its insurance test on 22nd March 2017 allowing the loco to haul (and heat) passenger trains on the ELR on the following weekend. This was the first time in thirty years that it had steam heated a train. There^s a tell tale wisp of steam from the front bogie as the shiny EE Type 4 slows to collect the single line staff from the Bury South signalman as it leaves Bolton Street heading for Heywood. Ironically, this was probably the warmest day of 2017 so far. [See image 24898] of the same loco taken in 1982.

Manuel Low Level: The island platform of Manuel Low Level station in 1999. The bay is to the right and through platform to the left. View looks south to the E&G. The reinstated curve between the lines is off to the right. Graham Langmuir described the station, when it was still open, to me as a dark and damp place.
Slamannan and Borrowstounness Railway
Ewan Crawford [//1999]


Windmillcroft Quay: A tale of three quayside terminii. Windmillcroft Quay was the Clyde side terminus of the Polloc and Govan Railway. Riverside warehousing and the Kingston Dock were built here after the railway was cut back to the Tradeston Destructor. Euroyachts was established in the eastern part of a converted former warehouse. Just to the west was Springfield Quay, terminus of the Govan Waggonway and to the west of that General Terminus. The former warehouses are now gone and Tradeston Bridge crosses the river at this point. This view looks west in 1999.

Strines: Looking south eastwards along the platform at Strines, towards New Mills Central and with Marple behind the camera. Facilities are sparse as are the trains that call here but a fair bit of new housing did seem to be appearing across the valley in the village. Perhaps some more passengers will make use of the platforms which can each accommodate a 6 coach train.

Shettleston Junction: View of the trackbed on the bridge across Gartocher Road taken through the fence at the Network Rail Shettleston Depot. At this point the line had three tracks with sidings on the left after crossing the bridge.

St Kitts: Rounding the northern tip of St. Kitts the Dutch island of Sint Eustasius comes into view from a train heading for La Vallee.
St Kitts Railway
Mark Bartlett [18/02/2017]


St Kitts: Viaduct over a ghat (valley) on the St Kitts Railway, seen from a train that had crossed it a few moments before. There are many such unfenced structures on the east coast of the island and the train often weaves around a headland then runs up a short valley before crossing one or more of these impressive bridges and heading back to the coast.
St Kitts Railway
Mark Bartlett [18/02/2017]


Länsiterminaali: At the terminus of the newly extended line to Lansisatama / Vastrahamnen (West Harbour) is a new Transtech Oy tram built in Otanmaki, Finland. The area is still ^a work in progress^.

Carnforth: 37419 Carl Havilland pulls away from the Carnforth stop with 2C47 Preston to Barrow-in-Furness on 20th March 2017 - as a slim video camera emerges from between the window bars to record the departure. DRS are contracted to provide the 2x37 hauled sets for Northern Cumbrian Coast services until January 2019.
Ulverston and Lancaster Railway
Mark Bartlett [20/03/2017]


Wester Hailes: A mid-morning service for Edinburgh calls at Wester Hailes on 20/03/2017. The station opened in 1987, the same year as neighbouring Curriehill reopened. Despite getting the same trains however Wester Hailes clocks up far fewer passengers. This is probably for socioeconomic reasons; this is not really commuter country. However footfall will surely improve with an increased service come electrification of the whole line.
Caledonian Railway
David Panton [20/03/2017]


St Kitts: The St Kitts Scenic Railway train running north alongside the range of volcanic mountains that overlook the Atlantic Coast.
St Kitts Railway
Mark Bartlett [18/02/2017]


Boroughbridge [2nd]: A section of bridge abutment remains at the east side of Leeming Lane, at Boroughbridge, at the west end of the new station site, as seen in this March 2017 view. This was the first bridge crossed when leaving the station heading on the extension of the line from Pilmoor through to Knaresborough. A further bridge was sited between the old and new stations at the east end of the new station site.

Peter Todd [15/03/2017]


Darwin Shopping Centre: Signal box lookalike atop the car park/bus station of the Darwin Shopping Centre in Shrewsbury. I cannot account for this structure, but it is perhaps simply meant to look mock Tudor.
Darwin Shopping Centre
John Yellowlees [17/03/2017]


Didcot: The OLE is progressing well, heading west. Apparently the Electrics come to Didcot at night on trials etc. Not too sure what power they use, diesel or OLE. 37424 arrived from Oxford and rapidly departed west towards Swindon.
Great Western Railway
Peter Todd [15/03/2017]


Dee Viaduct: This is the bridge over the River Dee looking south, it has getting refurbished for the last few months. Taken from the Duthie Park, behind the camera is the remaining parts of Ferryhill shed.
Aberdeen Railway
Alan Cormack [16/03/2017]


La Vallee: A double decked St Kitts Scenic Railway coach. The five in use are substantial vehicles, built in the USA around 2002. The lower saloon is air conditioned with loose wicker seating and tables - very colonial. The popular upper decks have longitudinal benches and are completely open apart from the canopy cover - ideal for en route photography.
St Kitts Railway
Mark Bartlett [18/02/2017]


Boroughbridge [2nd]: A soon to be lost view south east from Leeming Lane of the retaining wall built to support the new Boroughbridge station, at the start of the extension of the line, running from Pilmoor, from the old station through to Knaresborough. The large house type building is the extant former station masters house for the new station. The old station site can be identified by the buildings at extreme left of view. Bridges existed across Leeming Lane and also the un-named road to Dishforth running between the two station sites.

Blackburn, Darwen and Bolton Railway (Bolton, Blackburn, Clitheroe and West Yorkshire Railway)
John Yellowlees [17/03/2017]


Edinburgh Princes Street: Some of the evidence that the back of the Caledonian Hotel was once more than a car park. The corbels would have supported the roof arches and other marks indicate that there were structures attached to the wall.
Caledonian Railway
David Panton [17/03/2017]


Croston: The view north at Croston on 19 March 2017 shortly after the trees at the back of the platform on the right had been felled. On this side of the track work continues clearing the disused platform and nearest the camera the start of a vegetable patch.

Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway
Ewan Crawford [17/03/2017]


Arbroath: The Borders Railway unit seems to follow me around (including my previous visit here last year [see image 56960]) but I suppose there are only so many 170s and I should stay in more. It is here heading for Aberdeen on 15/03/2017.
Junction Line (Dundee and Arbroath Railway)
David Panton [15/03/2017]


Aboyne: Platform side at Aboyne, the tunnel under the A93 is in the distance, a new addition is the electric car re-charging point, it^s a shame that the electric battery railcar wasn^t still operating as intended on the line. The nearest charging points for the battery railcar were at Ballater and Aberdeen.

Aberdour: The Down Line at Aberdour with new sleepers awaiting fitting of the rails.
Aberdour Line (North British Railway)
Bill Roberton [19/03/2017]


Arbroath: It^s some years since long-disused goods shed was demolished, but the crane is still there and there^s no evidently no call on the land for development. Things move slowly round here. The platform track was severed at it^s southern end (potentially its most useful one) a long time ago.

Great Western Railway
Peter Todd [15/03/2017]


La Vallee: Circle the wagons!. Looking a little like a scene from a Western film, a St Kitts Scenic Railway train sits on the La Vallee turning circle, the present limit of operations. At this point train passengers transfer to buses to return to Basseterre by road while those who have arrived on the buses return by train along the Atlantic coast.
St Kitts Railway
Mark Bartlett [18/02/2017]


Dundee: The interim (one can hardly say temporary) entrance to Dundee station, seen from behind the ticket barriers on 15/03/2017. The building which will contain the new entrance takes shape on the eastern side, replacing the one that looks like it was made of plastic.

Alan Cormack [16/03/2017]


Teignbridge Level Crossing: The gates of Teignbridge Level Crossing, just over a mile north west of Newton Abbott, looking towards the former station at Teigngrace (closed 1959). Reviving the closed Teign Valley line north from here to Exeter was one of the options considered as a way of avoiding ongoing difficulties on the coastal route via Dawlish. [Ref query 982]

Rutherglen and Coatbridge Railway
Colin McDonald [14/03/2017]


Edinburgh Gateway: A 158 from Perth calls at Edinburgh Gateway on 14/03/2017. The salt on the platform is a relic of a colder day, but it was blowy here as always. As far as I can see not many people travel into Edinburgh from here as there is no park and ride, and people coming from the airport on the tram would surely stay on it.
Forth Bridge Connecting Lines
David Panton [14/03/2017]


Edinburgh Waverley: 67 003 in what could almost be Rail Blue. It^s occupying the far end of what will be Platform 6 by summer 2018. Waverley currently has a generous 4 stabling points: here, the neighbouring Platform 5 stub, opposite No 7 and between Nos 16 and 17.
North British Railway

Basseterre Sugar Factory: The central sugar factory at Basseterre which was in operation between 1912 and 2005. The St Kitts Railway made a thirty mile circuit of the island and operated seasonally to bring harvested cane from the various estates to this central processing plant.
