    Hi all, Chicken Ste from team tunnel trash here, well after last weeks monumental cock up by yours truly on posting pictures of the cathedral arches i think i've got the hang of it now. Tunneltrash and a few others from T.T.T did a reccy on this place earlier on in the week and felt that we had a good entry point, so when night fell it was time to put our plan into action. i thought that this place was a bit harder to get into than the arches, it certainly took longer anyway. But we managed to stay out of sight and after a few setbacks we were in. I'll let the pictures do the talking from here on in.

    Some interesting stuff :thumb



    er, well nearly - you have got double tags on every picture - that's why you have a set showing either side of each pic

    If you are copy/pasting the url versions from photobucket that already have them (which you are) then you just paste that straight into your report, not into the report using the 'insert image' option.

    Small point - but it will make your reports look a lot tidier. :thumb

    awesome, I would love to see the front of that Class 142, I've seen 142059, the brakes failed in 1990 and hit the buffers at liverpool lime street. God knows why the front is down there, the train was kept at their depot at newton heath until it got cannibalised.
