34034 has just come on shed at Nine Elms, one of 34's regular drivers was the late Reuben Hendicott who along with a few other drivers I got to know as I spent many Saturdays at Nine Elms in the last 2 years of steam. Reuben along with Gordon Hooper, and Gordon Porter were the 3 Nine Elms 'racers' who really brought out the best off the Bulleid pacifics after the re-signalling of the LSWR main-line to Basingstoke in 66. 20 years later I moved to Bournemouth, and by a million to one coincidence Reuben was my next door neighbour, a real character, he had many tales to tell,I wish I had wrote it all down, a few I can remember - one day, maybe another thread .

A nice setting - the snow and dull sky only highlights the well cared-for prairie centre stage.

Another half dozen photos all taken at the Eastleigh 100 in 2010.

First, the "Three Amigos".

20s.JPG

Then, "Brute Power".

Diesel power L.JPG

Thirdly, just so this is not all the same.

Manston L.JPG

For something definitely not the same. It occurred to me the number of modellers who sprinkle their depot scene with loco wheels(usually just the one?) Not driving wheels but wheels all the same!

 P1010446.JPG

Now back to diesels and electrics with this duo. 

P1010456.JPG

Finally, or is it?

I'll chip in the first round of many to come:

 

110 year old Beyer Peacock 3016T at Central Station

DSCF0539 (1024x768).jpg

 

The first locomotive across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, 1905, sits in the NSWRTM

DSCF0301 (1024x768).jpg

 

NR18 in new Indian Pacific livery at Central on January 2nd

DSCF0799 (1024x768).jpg

 

100 year old Hunslet 2705 at Thirlmere

DSCF1545 (1024x768).jpg

 

4306, the only diesel of her design left in the world at Central

DSCF3780 (1024x768).jpg

 

4918 on the AK track recording cars at Central

DSCF3826 (1024x768).jpg

 

4473, unique in being the only 44 out of one hundred to have a horizontal rear headlight

DSCF3833 (1024x768).jpg

DSCF3692 (1024x768).jpg

 

A study of DL liveries. DL44 is one of only two left in this colour scheme, whereas DL40 is in standard Pacific National Blue and Yellow

DSCF3680 (1024x768).jpg

DSCF0822 (1024x768).jpg

 

 

And, whilst not technically a locomotive, I just can't resist this one of Paybus FP1 down at Thirlmere in the RTM

It was a very pleasant day out was it not? As to "getting in anyone's way", I have a wife of 48 years standing (tomorrow as a matter of fact), to do that.

On the theme of obstructions etc, did you see this derailment on the Saturday afternoon to the north of Eastleigh. I took the picture on max telephoto, steadying the camera against the wall of the supermarket just under the road over bridge.

As a youngster I was fascinated by pictures of foreign locos and how different most of them looked from our own but one engine which seemed far less alien to me was the Australia NSWGR C38 in its streamlined form.  Already being ousted by dieselisation it was obvious to me that I was was never going to see one as I was hardly likely to make my way to the other side of the world and it certainly wouldn't be before steam finished in Australia.

 

But life takes some strange turns and so it was that in September 2004 - after the end of my 'big railway' career - I found myself working on a short term consultancy job for City Rail in Sydney.  I knew a bit about preserved railways in Aus but almost nothing about mainline steam in NSW so it was a huge, and very enjoyable, surprise to come across this  train in Central one Saturday morning as I was on my way to the ZigZag Railway.  And not just any steam special but one with a streamlined C38 at the head of it - only goes to show that some childhood dreams really can come true.

Not the most popular of railway units. New out of the box at Newton Heath in 1985.

Yet more from me, taken at Eastleigh 100
Why can't we have more open days like this?

D7612, in surely the best livery for a 25?

and 20110, with the safety covering for the 3rd rail in position -
It looks like it's sat on wooden track! ;)
