NR and the S&C manufacturers have opened new ones, such as the site at Beeston (seen here alongside the stabled tilting S&C wagons).

Banning denser development in affluent single-family neighborhoods makes mass displacement of the working class inevitable.

What a statement to put out at almost 6pm on a Friday afternoon, after the government's week from hell. Wow.

Complex S&C involves lots of short rails and moving parts. Operating standards were not as rigorous and labour was cheaper in the 1970s, and today we also have much less time to get out on track to maintain them (lots more trains) so we generally build S&C tougher and simpler.

Horrific to watch. This is what it looks like when you give up a leadership role in your continent because some nutcase said we can trade more lamb with the other side of the world.
