Shown here are the (then) still open, but seldom used, sidings at Reepham in May 1977, looking east towards the station. In 2010, the station had become a pleasant café, the goods shed a craft centre, and the trackbed a footpath/cycleway.
Corpusty and Saxthorpe: As if set down on someone's lawn, the former Midland and Great Northern station that used to serve Corpusty and Saxthorpe was being well cared for (by a local scout group) on 15th May 1977.

Seafield Shunting Frame: Seafield pit, just to the south of Kirkcaldy, was planned in the late 1950s and it was said it would last for 150 years. Despite this 'kiss of death' in longevity terms it did, nonetheless, manage 23 years in full production, closing in 1988 and having its prominent towers blown up the following year. It had a seam reaching well out under the Firth of Forth, coincidentally towards Seafield in Edinburgh which is within sight. This is, as far as I can recall, where the signal box stood between the ECML (left) and access to the colliery. [See image 29023]

There is a grandstand just off camera for viewing yacht racing, with grass terraces for spectators. The unfenced rail line runs right through these terraces!
Hobart: The solitary track from the north splits into three beside the Grandstand [see image 43328] with the one on the left falling away to quayside level for the container depot. The two to the right curve round to a general goods yard. These would have led into the passenger station were it not for the facts that there is a new road across the trackbed and the ABC TV buildings complex obliterating the site.

Leith Tram Depot: I wonder how many times I have walked past this bit of old tram rail on Leith Walk without noticing it? Leith Tram depot building near the foot of the Walk is soon to find a use as a community hub, whatever that is. This was the depot of Leith Tramways and is not to be confused with the Edinburgh Corporation depot at Shrubhill, further up Leith Walk. Sorry about the fag ends but I didn't have a sweeping brush on me.
Aylesbury: The start of the final week of Chiltern Railways Bubble Car operation shows both units, the last 1st generation DMUs in main line service, parked up at Aylesbury earlier on the Monday afternoon (150517).

Both parties met in April but, after talks broke down, the RMT confirmed that it would walk out once again on 8 April. The unions leader, Mick Cash, reiterated that he was still available for meaningful talks, but none in the last 12 months have been capable of putting an end to the row. Passenger group Brighton Line Commuters told the BBC that it welcomed todays fresh talks, but was sceptical that anything would come of it and argued the dispute should have been sorted out many months ago. Shelley Atlas, who runs the group, said people have got used to the situation by now, with many making alternative arrangements to get to and from work especially since several people reportedly lost their jobs due to repeated industrial action. Overall, almost 60,000 Southern services were cancelled last year, averaging 161 trains per day across the network. [From Richard Buckby]|
