At crewe heritage centre this Saturday ... See MoreSee Less
I’m coming on Saturday with a friend. Can’t wait! First visit. Could anyone help me understand which ATP resides at Crewe? I’m not particularly knowledgable about railways so bear with me. My understanding is that none of the first ATP (ATP-E) still exists anywhere, however, Crewe Heritage Centre have assembled a collection of rolling stock from the surviving ATP-P train sets? So my understanding is that Crewe have virtually all of the surviving ATP rolling stock, all of which is ATP-P rolling stock, plus there are a couple of other surviving ATP-P units in Coventry (I saw the crowdfunded to bring one of those up to Crewe too). Is that right?
Ellie Palmer - you should show this to your brother... 🙂

I'd like to say a huge Thank You to the gentleman from your signalbox who took time out to improve my little lads engine recognition skills this afternoon. As you probably gathered he is train mad (anything with a yellow front has to be a Class 37) & you have made his day. I will hopefully catch you again when we next visit. 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

News as regarding the APT power car. As your aware the target as been met and more, i'm just waiting for the safety checks on the power car from the NRM before booking the move. The crowd funder is still active until the 13th December, then it automatically closes, and surplus money will go towards the restoration part of the project...which is quite a bit lol. So thankyou all and any news i'll will keep you informed. Brian Porter ... See MoreSee Less

We’ve just had confirmation from the gang over on the APT P UK Class 370. They have been working hard campaigning to get money together to move the APT Power Car from the closed Coventry Railway Museum to Crewe Heritage Centre.
They have confirmed that tonight the Crowdfunder page has hit its target.
Thankyou to every single person who has dontated towards the campaign and a huge thankyou to Railcam for their continued Support.
The fundraiser is still open and donations are still welcomed as they will go towards the restoration of the vehicle.

In your Crewe North Junction signal box entrance area, you had very large photocopies of old maps. They looked very interesting with lots of details. But at about £6 for a large sheet of paper they were too expensive for me. I think you could make some extra money for your cause if you offered them for a more affordable price. Especially if you found someone who could copy them for less. I think offering them in the various local history groups would be popular. You don't need to supply them in tubes. ... See MoreSee Less

Just found these photos that Hughie Williams gave me. He took these when they moved the APT from its original position to where it is now. As can be seen the other power car, the one we're getting back, is in the consist. It was taken out while doing the move as there wasn't enough room to put it in. A great bit of engineering.

Excellent. My dad was passed out to drive the APT and although it never got into full service I'm very proud he was 'one of the few' so to speak.
I remember this well, I have some photos of this move as well Hughie was a close family friend.
