SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Alstom said if it wins the contract to build HS2 trains it can make single decker tilting trains Phase 1 London to Glasgow/Edinburgh and non-tilting double decker trains Phase 2 London to Manchester/Leeds.At least one Scottish politician MSP has complained that non-tilting HS2 trains will slow down tilting Virgin Pendolino trains on the West Coast Main Line.I think all the train manufactures have built tilting trains so I don`t understand why HS2 Ltd didn`t insist on tilting trains.
    The only downside with tilting trains is the higher maintenance costs which will be high for 250 mph trains anyway,this is the reason why CrossCountry disabled the tilting mechanisim on the BR Class 221 Super Voyager trains.
