That's more like a dream than a scheme.

 

Who's going to pay the hundreds of thousands of pounds that it would cost

to set up and run?

 

The People of Oughtibridge, Deepcar and Stocksbridge would be better served

by a dedicated feeder bus service that connected them with the fabulous

SuperTram service from Middlewood.

 

SYPTE pull your finger out.

More like millions, however, if we are serious about public transport in this

county then it has to be done.

 

Then we better start looking at electrical transport.

 

Apart from horses, electricity will be soon be the only energy source available

in Britain. We will need all the wind farms and nuclear power stations that we can

get our grubby hands on.

 

Governments of oil and gas producing countries around the world are not going

to sell the last drop of their own energy supplies.

 

They will suddenly turn off the tap - it will hit us like a bomb - sooner than we

realise - and oil producers will keep what they have left for their own military and

domestic needs.

 

Anyone got a pony and trap going to Sunny Spain next year ???

just to let you know that as far as i know the only trains to go on that line are feight trains and they dont travel to the steel works at stocksbridge they travel to the steelworks at the bottom of foxhill behind the old station at about 2 in the morning (varied) and you can get onto the line there aswell from the bottom where the hillsborough snooker club is as there is a little footpath that leads directly onto the old line

Nice vid Bus Man. I would have gone up myself if I had known it was going to be 2x66s.

I thought it was just going to be one of the departmental stock locos.
