Re: And another hobby.

No offence taken, Sandy. A number of ships started their journey well before the outbreak. I am glad I am not on P&O ship Arcadia at this moment. Since Fremantle (Perth, Australia) beginning of March, the ship has been denied entry to any of its scheduled ports. The last being Cape Town. At present ...

Re: Diesels at Crown Point.

As well as the bird on the fence, a bird has landed on the signal. Will it fly away when a train arrives? IMG_3605.JPG A train is due. It is safe to cross the road. The postman is waiting for someone to answer his knock on the door. Two dogs with him wait patiently. In days gone a dog did not have t...

Re: And another hobby.

I find it hard to believe that cruises are still going ahead at present. I no longer work in the docks so can't give chapter and verse. However most, if not all, cruise ships sailing are heading for 'lay up', one at Portland, another at Dover. A further ship is laying up near the Nab. Southampton p...

Re: And another hobby.

To be honest I cannot believe the intelligence of people booking any kind of travel in view of what is happening around the world I do wonder if there are millionaires cruses out there for the duration. Not bad way to sit out the epidemic is it. Long as you are all fit when they get on board. If yo...

Re: And another hobby.

I think many passengers have been on these ships for sometime - how long have your friends been on this particular cruise? The ship, Zaandam of Holland America (Part of Carnival Corp) left Buenos Aires on March 7th on a cruise around South America, through the Panama Canal to Fort Lauderdale. Since...

Thanks BB.

Re: Diesels at Crown Point.

The layout is not all about railways. :) It must be nearly home time? A couple of ladies waiting outside Roseville School for their 'little darlings'. IMG_3590.JPG Driver John Thompson (of W.A. Glendinning, Shotley Bridge) was regularly seen in Leeds. Here he is about to talk to Foreman Tim Sullivan...

A 'troop train' from the north is passing the level crossing and heading south. A mix of different carriages from different Companies is evident. IMG_3573.JPG Same train passing Sovereign Street Station. IMG_3574.JPG Another 'troop train' heading south passing Crown Point. IMG_3576.JPG Glencairn
