Salwick: Driver training on the new Northern CAF trains continues apace. 195110 was one of two sets working out of Blackpool North on these duties on 16th August 2019, which was a very dull and wet day indeed. The new train is seen at Salwick heading towards Preston.

Riddings: 1908 0-4-0ST locomotive 'Whitehead' running round at the eastern end of the Midland Railway Centre's line at Riddings, on the afternoon of Saturday, 4th May 2019. At the present time, this terminus consists of just a run-round loop with no station nor alighting facilities but the MRC does have a long-term aim to bring the line closer to the Erewash Valley Line with a new Pye Bridge station to allow passengers to alight at this end of the line. As it is, the current Riddings run-round loop is within sound, if not sight, of the Erewash Valley Line which is just behind the trees in the left background.

Niddrie Landsale Yard: Looking south over the former Landsale Yard at Niddrie, being prepared for redevelopment in 1997. The brick building had track entering the left arch but I don't know its purpose. The 'main line' to Woolmet Colliery ran to the left. The engine shed was to the right of the camera. The shopping centre in the background is on the site of the brickworks. See image 46580.

Tirphil: 37421 hauls the second evening commuter train from Cardiff Central to Rhymney out of Tirphil on 27th August 2019. Fans of the class 37 exhaust note should enjoy these trains, as there are some 15 stops - especially tuneful uphill. We had risen at 04.30 to catch the 07.24 into Cardiff - a long day. [see image 25707] for the same station looking rather less spruce over 30 years ago.

Orwell: Orwell was an intermediate station between Derby Road and Trimley but it closed in 1959 to allow faster Felixstowe services when DMUs were introduced. Near the station site is Levington Lane level crossing, where 170272 is seen heading from Ipswich with a service to the branch terminus on 31st July 2019. Work is presently taking place to extend double track from Trimley to this location, to increase freight capacity on the branch.
