Re: [b]Colour of Station Name Boards:[/b]

Caledonian days they were a deep purple background with white letters. In LMS days they painted the background a creamy/yellow colour and the letters are black

I've got a couple of Running in boards which I'll try to photograph and upload

Would look lovely on my wall, housed in a replacement wooden frame! Well, I had to ask. Best wishes, Michael Dunn. Hi Michael, I'm sure something can be arran...

Re: Milepost 91.

Not all WCML mileposts were marked with 'Carlisle' - this only started somewhere north of Coatbridge. From at least MP 98 (Carnbroe) southwards they were standard numbered MPs. I would reckon yours comes from somewhere in the Motherwell area.

Re: Belgium Dunalastair's

They were ordered by the Belgian State Railways and were direct copies (with some adjustments such as wider cabs etc.) as the Dunalastair II (Caledonian 766) class. One is preserved, in Belgium (link below takes you to a photograph). http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/3997-4-4-0-dunal...

Re: Another mystery location

I take your point but, according to recent photos, the footbridge is now at the south end of the station although an old map has it at the north - still fits with the hills on both sides - it's incredibly frustrating Looking north fro the south end of the station http://www.moraymrg.org.uk/mr-images...

Another mystery location

I have bought a negative from a well known auction site but don't know where it is - on the basis of the hill formations I originally thought Aberfoyle but the station buildings and platform don't look right - perhaps somewhere in the north east, ex-GNSR area? I haven't received the actual negative ...

Re: St Brides Crossing

Checked the maps and the 25 inch series would be perfect but, incredibly frustratingly, the nearest map stops half to three quarters of a mile away, at the head of the Pass of Leny! If the next one in the series, westwards, were available I'm sure it would show the footprint of the building.

Re: St Brides Crossing

I may be wrong but would be interested in anyone's opinion. It looks to me as John observes like the 'box and house are not attached which, if true, would make this fundamentally different from the other locations where such structures were employed (Awe Crossing, Glen Lochy, Drumvaich and Dalchonzi...
