In Search of Purple

In Search of Purple

At Custom House, the DLR station has been closed for most of 2017, whilst the Crossrail station is being built, and finally the DLR side opened back up again this week, and with it came rumours that a purple 'Elizabeth Line' roundel was now visible ... Music by Joakim Karud http://youtube.com/joakimkarud If you've made it this far in the description, well done! Why not write a sensible comment, followed immediately by your best Homer "Mmm, purple" impression. (Which by the way, is the thing you must now forever say whenever anyone mentions Crossrail. Ok?)

New Crossrail Trains (Class 345)

The new 'Aventra' Class 345 trains are now in operation on the TfL Rail branch between Shenfield and Liverpool Street. When Crossrail fully opens in December 2018 from Abbey Wood all the way to Reading as well, these are the units that will be running on the line.

RARE Alley to a railway crossing in London

RARE Alley to a railway crossing in London

This is a foot crossing on the Angerstein Wharf line in the London borough of Greenwich. It's considered rare because there are hardly any foot crossings in London. The crossing is accessible through an alley between the houses on Fairthorn Road. Angerstein Wharf is located on the south bank of the River Thames and is connected to the North Kent Main Line by this branch line. It is used to haul aggregate from the Aggregate Industries site to various freight yards in and around London. EDIT: I made a mistake in the subtitles @1:14. It should have read "Built by John Julius Angerstein in the 1850s". The branch line opened in 1852.

Royal Train, with HM the Queen, arrives at Cardiff. June 7th 2016

With special permission from platform security, we were allowed to record the arrival, at 7.20sec, of the Royal Train (67005/006 ) and the Royal Party being greeted on the platform.....plus some freight! In part one of an excellent but very hot day we see various class 66s, of special note is 66162 going on the line north via Queen Street and 70806 with 2 log wagons passing through towards Newport. Due to being limited with our position on the Royal Platform I was just able to record the ecs move to Canton..part 2 soon...

Why Not Monorail? (2000)

Why Not Monorail? (2000)

Is monorail 'just a ride' or can it serve as safe, fast and economic rail transit system? This year 2000 video, produced by The Monorail Society, was filmed and written by myself and edited by Karl Parker. While the listing of monorails has changed considerably since 2000, the basic arguments laid out for monorail remain largely the same. Proof in hardware? Have a look at the many new monorail systems built and now under construction since 'Why Not Monorail?' was produced: 2001-Tokyo Resort Monorail 2002-Dusseldorf 2003-Kuala Lumpur Monorail 2003-Okinawa Monorail 2004-Las Vegas Monorail 2004-Moscow Monorail 2007-Singapore 2011-Chongqing Monorail 2014-Mumbai Monorail 2014-Daegu Monorail 2014-Sao Paulo Line 15 2014-Qom Monorail 2014-Xi'an Monorail 2015-Sao Paulo Line 17 2015-Riyadh KAFD Numerous other monorails are in advanced planning, with construction to begin soon. All this activity proves that monorails are NOT 'just a ride!' For further information, visit The Monorail Society website at monorails.org .

TfL Rail Paddington to Heathrow

TfL Rail Paddington to Heathrow

With a new tube map for May 2018, TfL Rail services now run between Paddington through Hayes and Harlington, and down to Heathrow. We went to catch the first ever 'purple' train (Class 345) in passenger service, and try to get our heads around the service pattern... TO SUMMARISE! BEFORE ... - Heathrow Express (4 trains per hour, to Terminals 2&3 and then T5) - Heathrow Connect, USED to run to Terminal 2&3, and then also (if you stayed on) to T5 as well - There was a Heathrow Express shuttle every 15 minutes between T2&3 and T4. AFTER ... - Heathrow Express - UNCHANGED - 4 trains per hour, to Terminals 2&3 and then T5) - TfL Rail, two trains per hour (New Class 345) only as far as Hayes & Harlington - Old 'Connect' trains (now with TfL Rail badge on them) every half an hour, all the way to T2&3, and then T4. - TfL Rail shuttle every half an hour between T4 and T2&3, meaning that there is a train every 15 minutes from T4 FUTURE ... - Crossrail/Elizabeth Line (New Class 345 purple trains) will run 6 trains an hour to T2&3, four with then go to T4, two will go to T5. - Heathrow Express remains unchanged... for now. Clear as mud? Excellent.
