    Not sure where to put this. .......

    What makes a good post? I am not exactly sure. Many of mine are somewhat self-indulgent. I see something I want to investigate and I write about it. ...

    There are older threads about Skelton Junction and surrounding lines on www.railforums.co.uk which I reference towards the end of this post.

    The reason I wanted to look at this was utterly self-indulgent.

    Long ago, ... long, long ago ... I lived in Broadheath. My home was less than a mile from Skelton Junction. Doing some investigation was as much about my roots as it was about railways. ....

    This short piece is the result:

    The really significant piece of work was what prompted my interest in the first place - an article by Eddie Johnson in the November 2003 issue of Steam Days.

    I think what makes a good post is well presented and accurate content, self indulgent we all are to a degree but that's fine because all this interest and information is being made available for members to share whenever they may need specific detail in their projects, so please do carry on being self indulgent Roger because you are indeed a most determined researcher and your posts / thread are always packed full of factual evidence which makes for a great read. I,m sure all the our Mods and Admin will say the same. :tophat::thumbup:
