The sign would be worth preserving!

Minehead: Minehead station is fine and traditional, but the recently built Turntable Café (right) is an acquired taste. The silver 1997 Vauxhall Corsa is arguably as well preserved as the station.

Hesselby Station Dalhem Isle of Gotland: The train had just left so the station in the village of Hässelby/Dalhem (old spelling Hesselby) seemed very quiet but all the doors were nevertheless wide open. This allowed easy viewing of the restored rooms inside. At the far end was an impressive shop with many informative books and leaflets for sale as well as wall-mounted information boards all in Swedish. The building is painted in the original Slite-Roma Jernväg (SlRJ) colours with restoration taking place between 1972 and 1974. The line, then run by SJ, closed in 1953.

Logierait Viaduct: Logierait Viaduct is the only community-owned viaduct. The plaque reads:
The Tay Viaduct, Logierait. First opened in 1865 by the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway (later to become the Highland Railway), the Tay Viaduct passed into the hands of Kinnaird Estate in 1964 after the last train had crossed the bridge on 1st May of that year. In 1994 the estate gifted it to the local community which founded the Logierait Bridge Company (a company limit by guarantee with charitable status) to hold it. In 2000/01 it was comprehensively restored at a cost of around £400,000 and re-opened as a community-owned road bridge.

Hesselby Station Dalhem Isle of Gotland: The Station Master (Stinsen) sets the signal on the platform at Hesselby to line clear . This heritage narrow gauge railway recreates some of the aspects of railway operation on the Swedish Baltic island. Gotland had several 891mm gauge (3 Swedish feet) lines which first opened at the end of the nineteenth century/early twentieth century. Those that remained in operation were taken over by SJ in the 1940s but all were subsequently closed by 1960.

Breich: More famous than at any time in its 148-year history: a half page ad on the Breich station closure proposal shouts out from page 21 of the 7th July edition of the Guardian. One wonders how many of Breich^s 2.6 passengers per week are readers of the illustrious London-published newspaper?

Summerseat: Immaculate Drewry Class 04 D2298, operating a train at the ELR Small Engines Gala, seen at Summerseat in June 2017. The inset picture shows the previous time I had seen the loco, at Dunnington on 6th January 1973, when it hauled a railtour to the Derwent Valley Light Ralway near York. The tour from Manchester ran along the DVLR in near darkness due to a loco failure near Wakefield. Sister loco DVLR No.2 (D2245) shared the haulage on the light railway section.

Beuron: Early on 9th June 2017, the author^s efforts to photograph a local freight train at Beuron (on the Tuttlingen-Sigmaringen line) are thwarted for the second time, as double-headed Class V180 light diesels trundle westwards along the valley of the Danube. This railway sees several freight trains a week, conveying chemicals, oil and steel - sometimes in wagonload formation - as well as intermittent timber traffic.

Danby: The Esk Valley line to Whitby crosses the River Esk and the local road to Lealholm in rapid succession shortly after leaving Danby Station heading east. The view looking south shows the second bridge, the road bridge, which, for a rural location, has a motorway headroom of 16 feet. The section of the bridge on the far side has a higher still headroom, having been rebuilt in the recent past. The river bridge is some 25m to the right.

Coventry Airport: ERM museum for electric trains, none of which can move under their own power, because there is no electricity supply; and no covered storage. It is next to Coventry Airport and a lot tidier than it was a few years ago but has just announced it has to close in October 2017 as the land is being redeveloped. Appeals are being made to house the collection at various sites until it can be reassembled at a new location. Visit while you can.

Otterington: Shortly after leaving the East Coast main line at Cordio Junction the line to Leeds via Ripon and Harrogate crossed the A167 road south of North Otterington village before reaching the first station south at Newby Wiske. The view looking south shows a section of the lengthy stretch of embankment that runs south west from the former rail overbridge towards Newby Wiske. The approach from the north was mostly on the level or a shallow embankment, and the short built up section just before the bridge has been profiled down some 10m back from the road. Nothing remains of the bridge, where a vehicle can be seen parked where an abutment would have been.

Dunragit: A reminder of when the Stranraer line carried freight - not so long ago, 1989. Here a northbound train of steel sections passes Dunragit level crossing and the token exchange has just taken place. There was a safety man with a flag and the signal man had the luxury of a colleague who swapped the tokens while he remained in the box with the levers.

Runswick Bay: A large depression exists along Ellerby Lane, on the edge of Runswick Bay Top village, at the location where the coast line through Staithes to Whitby West Cliff crossed over the lane approx 1Km south east of Hinderwell Station. The trackbed is only slightly above the road level on the Runswick side approach, so could possibly have crossed the road on the level, rather than the road being cut away to pass below the line. The view is looking south west towards the A174 and Ellerby village, with the Runswick boundary stone just to rear of view.

Kneippbyn Isle of Gotland Sweden: This family resort featues a very short and compact narrow gauge (?500mm) railway. The picture shows how tight the curves are on this. Both ends of the train are visible but facing in opposite directions and the train is ^loco^ plus 3 cars i.e. less than 10 metres long. From what was visible the arrangement is 2 pairs of axles per bogie with 2 bogies per vehicle and the wheels are approx. 10 cm in diameter. The bodies are pastel coloured plastic which almost totally cover the underframes. The ^loco^ seems to be electrically driven, probably using power from batteries and the train is remotely controlled. It was test run each morning around 07.20, co-incidentally at the same time as the bread was coming out of the oven at the on-site bakery, long before the crowds were allowed in.

Slateford: Looking east from the footbridge at Slateford. The Craiglockhart spur diverges to the right. Two class 27s are in attendance, perhaps to check track circuits after some renewals. Soon the junction would be converted to a single lead and electrification would follow.

Hausen im Tal: A classic scene in the Danube gorge at Hausen im Tal on 7th June 2017. An eastbound Donaueschingen-Ulm IRE service awaits departure from this loop station on the Tuttlingen-Sigmaringen single-track railway, with its platform signalling centre - but there is only one platform, so two stopping passenger services cannot cross here. In the background is Schloss Werenwag, one of several such castles which characterise this stretch of the Danube.

Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge: There is a visitor centre at the Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge from where there are site tours. Operations in the winding room are explained and there is an opportunity to travel to the top of the bridge in a lift and walk on the deck. The bridge is now operated by computer and the cab on top of the gondola is effectively redundant.
