  1. Its all about money and keeping as many hopes alive as possible right to the very end of the season, I suppose
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Definitely Great Northern Railway, later LNER See
  6. The kettles were interesting too. Here's one on eBay (linked image)
  7. Sentinels D11 and D12 are in various photos, so at least 2 were in use at some time or other
  8. There were at least 3 BR standard shunters - Robin, Simon and David according to pictures online.
  9. Here we go... I think they had one or two ex-BR shunters too. Not sure of the details
  10. They had a 4-axle Sentinel diesel shunter with a centre cab will try and find a photo later.
  11. The white rings on the tree and white edges to the front mudguards on the lorry suggest wartime.
  12. Some motors seen recently in Armenia and Georgia - a couple of lorries and British buses included too, for completeness
  13. It is not the first time that strange car has been discussed. There was definitely a very long and interesting topic in the photo some time ago on here. The result was inconclusive despite several near misses. Probably a kit car or home made job was the final conclusion, IIRC
  14. Collars Ltd of Wembley owned AUU 602, a Commer two-ton chassis with an "art deco" streamlined van body by Holland Coachcraft of Govan in Glasgow. This van was displayed at the 1933 Commercial Vehicle Show
