Seen the news this morning peeps? You ain’t seen nothing yet... #InterestingTimes
What a lovely #SignalBox It’s not very big though, sorry @MrTimDunn #Robertsbridge
Here’s the connection at #Robertsbridge at the @RVRailway
Unfortunately, a number of years ago, there was a landslip on the siding. #Robertsbridge #Earthworks #Geotech
Finally, there’s a few things going on here including this! Ever seen a deconstructed turntable, with part of it on a wagon!? Well here it is! #Robertsbridge #Turntable #Heritage #Connections #Rail #RotherValleyRailway
As if you didn’t need reminding, stay away from the tracks folks. Trains are fast, heavy & don’t stop quickly, especially here where the limit is 90mph. Stay well & keep safe folks. That’s pretty much me done until the end of the year. Unless it isn’t, as the case may be... #Rail

So we start with the 1st line & hit the buffers as we hit the “reallocate funds fallacy”. This has been explained so many times. Cancelling #HS2 means no money for anything else. Funds raised for #HS2 can ONLY be spent on HS2 & these funds are borrowed against future use. Image
If there’s no HS2, there’s no funding for HS2 & no money. Also please explain how NR received an initial £48bn for CP6 back in 2019 if HS2 was “hoovering up funds”. As for value, as seen with existing lines, heavy capital costs are made back over the lengthy operational timespan
Remember that parts of today’s WCML are almost 200 years old. How many times has that paid for itself over & over & over again above its initial costs? Also, what’s with a #Green going with the austerity rhetoric?? We can’t afford not to decarbonise, at any cost, esp public spend

DAY281: 28/07/2019 it’s @RHDR thread time! My 1st ever visit was on this day having had a lovely weekend camping in East Sussex with friends. We started at #Dungeness behind Hercules #Steam #SteamTrain #TrainTravel #TravelbyTrain
#CoronaAlone #CoronaLockdown ImageImageImageImage
Departure from #Dungeness behind Hercules! It’s situated on a uni-directional loop as we head back towards the beach & the single line section towards Romney Sands via the spring loaded points. #RHDR #Steam #SteamTrain #TrainTravel 🚂 🌊
Past the wonderful #ThePilotInn where you can get cracking fish n chips we chatter across Dungeness past Lydd-on-Sea along the single track section towards Romney Sands. These little engines make a fantastic sound! #Steam #Heritage #Railway 🚂 🌊

I joined from @NetworkRailLDS to @NetworkRailKGX We had a good trip, up the ECML with everyone in good spirits on the train! I grew up with the HSTs on the ECML & it was a nice way to remember my late grandfather who used to take me to spots along the line to see them... ImageImageImageImage
I somehow featured in @LNER Final Day highlights video talking about this & remembering them in #Intercity Swallow livery 🖤❤️
