    Report - Stephenson Shunter - Tanat Valley Railway, Oswestry - May 2024

    Visited this one while out camping in Wales. Also got kicked out of a brewery in Llangollen, had to feign interest in a fishing club in an attempt to sneak into a saw mill, yet still failed, and broke down on the way back home. Got half a dozen nice shots of the brewery though, so I might put...

    Report - Stephenson shunter - Tanat Valley Railway, Porthywaen branch line - Oswestry - January 2024

    The Kingsway Tram tunnel in Holborn, completed in 1906, only served as part of an active tram line until 1952, shortly before trams were removed from London's streets altogether. Over the years the tunnel has been repurposed several times and was even utilised in 2008 as a film set for "The...
