Evening All,I recently uploaded some pictures taken on an LCGB trip to Yugoslavia in 1966 to my Flickr site. If anyone is interested in seeing them, this is the first one in the Photostream:They can also be found in this album together with the pictures I uploaded previously:Hope they're of interest.
Wow! absolutely brilliant, never been interested in anything other than British Railways but to to see these locos kept in such fantastic condition in 1966 is incredible, beautiful stuff. I traveled to Italy in 1965, just south of Derby was this Jubilee covered in filth, unrecognisable, number or name, it was in a disgraceful condition. We traveled to Rome all the way by rail.....unforgettable, Metz depot on the French/German border was full of of steam and from a distance it all looked in pretty good nick. On the return trip I saw a number of French steam locos all looked to have many years of service left in them heading north to Paris. From Paris to Calais, the real bonus........double headed what I now know to be Chapelon Pacifics, fantastic, wish I had a half decent camera then,
Can't go back
