  1. The scenes around London right now are ridiculous.... Liverpool Street station, Leicester Square and the streets surrounding Wembley. Kings Cross had to be evacuated this morning as a flare set off the fire alarms.... i'm sure we don't want to see this happening here.
  2. http://www.signalboxes.com/darnall-signalbox.php https://www.picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s03030&pos=2&action=zoom https://picturesheffield.com/frontend.php?keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;s15019&pos=15215&action=zoom&id=17812 For starters.....
  3. Mitchells at Meadowhead normally have a good selection of beers.
  4. Wednesday can't afford any players at the moment.... and if you was a player and heard that the club that were after youand they'd had issues paying players wages then would you sign for them ?
  5. Unless they want to put the ice down for the Steelers.... it could be a bit cold on the floor even with the wood down. The lack of touring acts not coming to the Arena is a worry for me...
  6. Which is basically just another exit from the retail park taking you out on to a busy Aldwarke Lane towards Dalton under two low and narrow railway bridges.... doesn't help the Parkgate area in general and if the land the road crosses is also redeveloped into retail units then that in turn would bring more traffic in.
  7. But when things get back to normal or as normal as can be expected will we be getting big name acts again ? Some huge very well known Worldwide acts have announced tours such as the Pussycat Dolls, Genesis, Elton John, Blondie, Snoop Dog, Diana Ross or even Sheffield's own Human League... but none are stopping of in Sheffield. Is the Arena past it's prime or are the promoters avoiding it for another reason ?
  8. 1F70 London St Pancras to Leeds due Sheffield 22:18 Platform 1.... the last HST to leave the Capital in revenue earning service. Moments away.... 43102 leading 43274.
  9. So.... the last EMR HST's have run... all we have left locally are the sets that Cross Country still have in service that regularly pass through Sheffield. Meanwhile on the ECML, they've been bringing the Class 91's out of warm storage to cope with the Hitachi crisis.
  10. And not forgetting that it's a reduced capacity too at Meadowhall... maximum 8,500 at any one time.
  11. They move on.... Hillsborough see at least two drug drop offs daily, reported to the police and it's ongoing, same places every day.
  12. The last EMR 125 runs on Thursday (13th) on a St Pancras to Leicester and return special. Cross Country still have a few sets running, I saw two within an hour passing through Sheffield on Friday.
  13. An area of the old marshalling yard was in use as a temporary container terminal before Christmas as the one at Rotherham Masbrough was having some work done. They'd cleared the cutting below what used to be the depot, put up some generator powered lighting and unloaded containers there.... is that the same area that will be put into use or is it the other end of the yard ? I do lose my North / South bearings around there.
