It's a while since I've posted many photos, so I thought it is time to have a new ongoing thread.  The photos were, as usual, all taken by either Dad or I from  the early 50s to the present day.  The quality will vary depending on the condition of the original slide, the camera and film used.  I'll try to avoid ones I've used before.

 

Some are taken from my sets on flickr, others are ones I am still working on having scanned some years ago.  The locations will probably be fairly random.

 

Other threads of my photos include:

Dad's black and white photos:

http://www.rmweb.co....947-to-1955ish/

 

This is a newish thread covering France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark etc (or at least it covers bits of them!):

http://www.rmweb.co....-19th-may-2015/

 

A short thread:

http://www.rmweb.co....h-january-2014/

 

My own black and white photos:

http://www.rmweb.co....-30th-december/

 

I'll start today with a few from the Lune Gorge etc and Shap.

3 photos of Lancaster when electrification work was in progress.  While I was doing my PGCE year (teacher training) after my Biology degree I generally took each weekend off and went out to take photos.

 DaveF, your photographs are very nostalgic. I love the way the class 114 unit appears to be weathered. Please post more when you can.

 

All the best,

The one with the EE Type 1 looks like the sort of thing that a kid might run on their first train set..Brakevan on wrong end and a pair of non-identical opens on either end of a bogie well wagon. Oh, and a Triang Cemflo on the well-wagon, as its flanges were too big for Hornby-Dublo points..

A few from Kent today.  They were taken on day trips from Basildon travelling through the Dartford Tunnel - which in those days could have big traffic jams.  Where I live now a traffic jam is two cars in front of me at a roundabout.

Wonderful photo's again, DaveF. The class 47 view has reminded me of a day excursion on 17th April, 1977 from Hull to Shrewsbury. Again many thanks for these photo's.

 

All the best,

I do still take railway photos, here are a few of the 150+ I took at the Tanfield Railway today.

 

Note: All these photos were taken from areas with public access.    The Tanfield Railway still allows access to the engine shed and stock storage areas unless movements are taking place, then some areas are roped off.

You will also notice that orange jackets are not worn.

excellent pics once again dave, very much enjoy your late-60s/ early-70s ones for the mix of liveries, even in one train.

 

J1265 is a good one for the nice view of a dia.17 RF - a particularly LMR vehicle, looking fresh in b/g with small numbers

 

all of your photos seem to have a lot of 'peripheral' interest too - detailing the fixtures and fittings & other ephemera of the railway e.g. C177 of the green 114 at barkston

Crewe in 1971 today.  These were taken on a Saturday visit at the time when I was spending most days working towards my finals at University in Manchester.  I always found a day out watching trains and taking photos was a very good way of relaxing.  As far as I can see it was a day when nothing much happened in the World.  There had been a postal strike which lasted from 20th January to 8th March, this probably explains the number of mailbags around the station.

Excellent stuff .Love the Standard 5. When I went to Poland in 2003/4 this was very much the sort of thing that still happened near Wolsztyn and Poznan. A 'Standard' type 2.6.2. MT loco on an old branch with just a few wagons (usually timber). Great fun, especially when one was driving/ shunting.
