"Exeter is an important railway crossroads, marking the junction of the two traditionally rival West of England lines from Waterloo and Paddington. Today, at the beginning of a new era of competition on the railways, Exeter is once again served by rival companies. We see the Western route towards Taunton and down to Torbay, and the Southern line to Honiton, as well as the Exmouth and Barnstaple branches, and the freight line to Meldon. At the centre of it is Exeter St Davids station, where you can see trains for London leaving in opposite directions! Many aspects of the working of the railways in the Exeter area are covered in this programme, including memories of recent steam specials, and the last days of the well-loved Class 50 diesels." A fascinating insight for Train enthusiasts t...
This was a 2 day visit for me..
Today we are in Karlsruhe in south-west Germany not far from France. Karlsruhe is a midsize city with approximately 300,000 people; it is the second-largest city (after Stuttgart) in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. In Germany it is known for its excellent technical university, its Baroque palace as well as hosting Germany’s two highest courts: the Federal Constitutional Court and the German Supreme Court. It is also known for its expansive tram and light rail system, which achieved international recognition and gets copied around the world as the “Karlsruhe Model”. The city has 71 km of tram lines, which serve the city proper. This tram system is shared with a light rail system called “Stadtbahn Karlsruhe”, which has a system length of 262 km and reaches far beyond Karlsruhe itse...

The Bangkok Airport Rail Link goes from Suvarnabhumi Airport to the centre of Bangkok. It also links to the MRT (underground) and BTS (skytrain) in the heart of Bangkok. The Bangkok Airport Rail Link works out much cheaper than a taxi if you are travelling solo or even as a couple. It is especially good if you are travelling light. Where taxis can be 300-400 baht to your hotel or to the Airport with all surcharges, toll fees and meter fees are totalled up, using the Airport Rail Link saves money and can save on time too. For larger groups and if you have a lot of bags it is still recommended to take a taxi due to the lack of escalators/lifts, also the changing to the MRT at Makkasan and BTS at Phaya Thai is not ideal. Makkasan Station to Suvarnabhumi Airport Journey. Date: 4th A...

Rail maintenance work has been carried out at Newport in Melbourne’s west for over 130 years. In 2016, Downer completed a $7.5 million upgrade to the site, including the installation of a Portal Wheel Lathe to service train wheelsets for all three rail gauges used by Australian networks. The extensive two year upgrade created 84 new jobs over the program, transforming the historic site into a leading rail services delivery centre for bogies, wheelsets and engine overhauls.

A visit to the Cottesmore Industrial railway Centre coincided with both current locos being in steam and one under going a boiler test. In preparation for an open weekend a bit of shunting was necessary and this is a short film i made of the resulting manouvers.

One of York’s most anonymous buildings houses the railway’s engineering memory - an archive of around nine million records dating back to the 17th century, but still expanding to take in documents from the 13,000 or so live projects currently being pushed forward by Network Rail. All the great engineers are represented - Stephenson (both George and Robert), Locke, Barlow, Brunel - and a number of structures that helped to sharpen the cutting edge, such as the tubular girder bridges on the North Wales coast line. Also here are the title deeds for all the land and properly ever owned by the railway. But it would be wrong to regard Network Rail’s National Records Centre simply as a historical repository. Understanding how a structure was built and its subsequent evolution can help to explai...
