    • Photos from 1950s spotting trips.
      Recently I purchased a box of railway ephemera from the estate of a deceased enthusiast who seems to have been a teacher in the Cambridge area. However, he seems to have travelled far and wide in the 1950s and 1960s, taking his camera with him. I have spotting notes, a few logs of travel details, and photos of locos seen on shed at various locations around Britain. 
       
      Unfortunately, the writing in the notebooks are in pencil and seem to have faded a little making easy identification of all the numbers a little tricky. Not only that, but most of the photos are not captioned at all which doesn't help matters. However, there are a number of images from 1954 and the first of those digitised so far are from South Wales.

    • Shwt
      Situated around the sand and gravel pits of tewksbury, Shwt was a small station stop and goods yard on a previously busy double track LNWR line. Modelled around the mid 1960s, the line in recent years has fallen upon hard times, converted to single track some time ago, the line beyond Shwt crossing has now succumb to the Beeching axe. With the closing of this line, Shwt lost it's passenger traffic and owes survival to the sand loading platform constructed next the old engine shed. The only trains to reach Shwt now are mixed goods trains which supply the small coal merchant, the goods stores and the sand loading. As typical for the 1960's Shwt is occassionally the destination for railtours exploring old lines

    • On Shenston Road. Some recent photos.
      Having been asked on a few different threads to show some more of D1047s stock, I thought I'd start up this topic to show some of the locos and stock I've photographed over the years. Some of my earlier attempts are a little crude. (I shall blame the camera) but in recent years, and with a better camera I've been improving somewhat.
      Anyway here are some to start the ball rolling.
      A general, (slightly out of focus) view of the station at Shenston Road.
      Moving on the station holding sidings. Sorry didn't note down the loco numbers.
      Cl45 No102 runs through the station whilst Cl47 1674 waits in the goods loop.
      Cl22 D6327 waits in the down platform at Shenston Road.
      D1028 runs through Shenston Road from the Birmingham Snow Hill direction.
      Stroke of luck as D1028 is caught between the hordings from a passing bus.
      Well that's a start. I'll add more as time and photography permits.
