    ooooooooh I like this too. Love anything to do with trains (and no I'm not a trainspotter )

    Good to see a few different engines, and different liveried carriages. and the coal train too :)

    Whereabouts in warwickshire is this? and is it some kind of train graveyard, or a railway museum? Either way, I'd love to see it.

    I'm betting Peanuts will like this as well, :D

    Excellent pics,

    :) Sal

    One of them is certainly MoD Kineton.... Loads of old loco's and rolling stock stored there..

    And I would say these were taken a while ago as 47307 moved from Kineton to EMR Kingsbury during May last year, and was cut up there during May this year ;)

    Is this for emergency use?
    I'm loving the old Intercity carraige in what i'm guessing is the old BR colours

    Long Marston had an 'open day' a few weekends back for enthusiasts to be able to go and have a nosey around.
    Its not just old stuff that goes into LM, there have been brand new wagons there for a few weeks while the terminals have been upgraded to be able to take them.
    Of Course I don't Look Busy... I Did It Right First Time!
