  1. see second section on this page https://eastmidlandsnamedbricks.blogspot.com/2017/03/west-notts-brickworks.html
  2. Only one team gets relegated from League 2 this year and Macclesfield are very close to going into administration which, if it happened would probably mean they were expelled and no team is relegated this year. A good year to play badly? IIRC Stags benefitted like this once before when they avoided the drop from Div 3 to Div 4 as Peterborough were deducted points for irregularities and relegated instead.
  3. see this article for more information http://www.ournottinghamshire.org.uk/page_id__1109.aspx?path=0p31p331p map here https://rujokinggrandad.co.uk/ripley-nottingham-tram-1913-1933
  4. That's why I put a smiley at the end of the message
  5. Even if we exclude small islands in rivers like the Arun, you still have Thorney Island and Pilsley Island
  6. I saw TR14 NGR today. (think of model railways)
  7. Its all about money and keeping as many hopes alive as possible right to the very end of the season, I suppose
  8. The lower 4 have a playoff for the right to play the second and third teams in the final playoffs. Only 2 teams will get promoted - the top team and the winner of the playoffs. The Bury situation is being solved by only one team being relegated from League 2 this year.
  9. Leaves on the line also make the rails slippery. I am told that the Robin Hood line suffers from this. Some years they have implemented a special timetable with one train an hour skipping certain stations and the other taking things very carefully when stopping and starting from the likes of Kirkby and Sutton Parkway.
  10. On older trans everything put down the toilet went straight out onto the track. Not very nice having poo and urine all over the sleepers at a railway station (never mind anywhere else). Nowadays nearly all trains have retention tanks, so no problem.
  11. Definitely Great Northern Railway, later LNER See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bennerley_Viaduct
  12. The kettles were interesting too. Here's one on eBay (linked image)
  13. Sentinels D11 and D12 are in various photos, so at least 2 were in use at some time or other
  14. There were at least 3 BR standard shunters - Robin, Simon and David according to pictures online.
