Hi all

Thought I would share this photograph taken by David Kirkwood today with the group, I think it is stunning.
But as a train buff I would!!

Alycidon, is there an available EWS timetable?

These particular workings today were very much a one off due to engineering works elsewhere, there is a timetable but it is not available for general use and it can change at short notice as coal supply and demand alters.
The Scotrail Yahoo Group is the best way of trying to work out where and when these workings occur http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/scot-rail/

Thanks for the info Alycidon :) In a similar situation saw freight
moving through Queen Street low level, but that was many years
ago.

I suppose having the EWS timetable available would incur security
issues regarding the nature of the cargo.

I can see this bridge from my flat window. There are two empty passenger trains go over every day. One at about 10.10am and another about 10.30 pm. Saw an EWS coal train going across this morning as I went out to get my newspaper. Nearly got hit by a bus because I stopped in the middle of the road to gawp at it.

Did you notice they have knocked down the two buildings in St Andrews Street, at the back of Reids furniture shop? They have installed a 24 guard as well, in case anyone steals the rubble.

Pound to a penny, I should be heading south instead of north :?: :oops:

In view of Fossy's above post, I should be heading to a darkened room. :roll:

FFS, I appear to have edited my previous post to nothingness, it went something along the lines of:

I can't find St. Andrews St. on my maps & looking up Reid's of Glasgow does not help, if you are seeing Fossy looking across the river into Clyde St. from Calton Pl. Do you mean this demolition site beside "Howard Bedding"?
