Mud Child, your point is totally valid and well made. However, there is a huge difference between staff working on the railway and CUSTOMERS taking photographs while visiting a tourist attraction. Unfortunately most people these days are not fully aware of the risks of trespass simply because it is not part of their everyday life and they therefore have no reason to know.

I think we have established that the five people in the picture were there through no fault of there own and they were only there due to poor signage or lack of platform staff. While I consider the defamatory remarks made concerning the Highley Five both here and on the fotopic site to be uncalled for, I look forward to reading that adequate signage has been reinstated at Highley to prevent a reoccurence.

I agree signs should be in place as a minimum and barriers placed at the top of the platform ramps would be much better. in this case if the signs were removed for painting or whatever the persons cant be held responsible. however some people will trespass no matter what you do or say. my point is that if people are to go on or near the line they should be PTS'd and wear Hi Viz, if they dont have both of the above then they should be considered as trespassing and removed. photography shouldn't be encouraged where people can walk onto the line. unless they have a good reason to be there why are they there people shouldn't be allowed into a place where there is a chance they can be hurt.

The common sense people had many yers ago has been lost due to the nanny culture we live in, i don t need a sign to tell me if a train hits me it will hurt.

not being a photting type i dont lust after the master shot and cant understand why a photograph is worth more than my life.

this is bound to upset someone.

I wondered why 7714 was on the last train arriving at Kiddie. How long will she be out for? As she was meant to be running today.

I was hoping to see it around Arley at some time, but saw 5 other locos instead:-
5164
7714
7812
42968
45110
An enjoyable few hours out & warm enough to sit in the sun & eat sandwiches at the station.

Withdrawn from service as a preventative measure, not a catastrophic incident. I have every confidence it will be available for traffic very soon.

All that was needed was plug out and hose in, but then again if no-one qualified to remove plugs was present, it seems nothing could be done...

It has to be said 88 is a cracking engine, I was on it today and I'm extremely impressed...

All credit due to the WSR for their work on it...

Why couldn't it be backfilled up one of the injectors? This did the trick at BY on reopening morning. As per the instructons - this engine definitely needs filling to the whistles and the backhead clacks shutting down of a night.

I would second both of these comments - it goes very well and is in good nick. Mind you the controls make a GW cab seem ergonomic!

I was at BH when the DSM withdrew it from service. The reason I was informed for its withdrawal wasn't for the reason outlined above. I am happy to reiterate it was "Withdrawn from service as a preventative measure, not a catastrophic incident".

As olly5764 said "nothing too serious".
