  1. The NYMR gala in September was a splendid affair which I thoroughly enjoyed despite the rain on the Friday and Sunday. As has been mentioned before, the Hall and the King double-heading on the Sunday completely flattened the 1 in 49 up to Goathland! I took quite a few pictures during the weekend and if anyone would like to have a look the first batch is now on Flickr: Hope they're of interest.
  2. Afternoon All, Yesterday was a red letter day for Southern fans as 35018 BRITISH INDIA LINE was back in the south working on its old stamping ground for the first time since withdrawal in 1964! I went out to take some pictures and these are now on Flickr. If anyone one would like to have a look, this is the first one in the Photostream: RD20480. 35018 at Farnborough. by Ron Fisher, on Flickr They can also be seen in the album 'Main Line Steam, 2019': Hope they're of interest.
  3. Morning All, On Saturday, 15th June, the Ruislip Lido Railway Society held an open day to celebrate their 40th Anniversary. In the evening there was a special running session for members and invited guests; I was once a volunteer there before moving away from that area, so was pleased to be invited to attend. I took a picture (or three) and these are now on Flickr. If anyone is interesting to have a look, this is the first one in the Photostream: RD19979. MAD BESS. by Ron Fisher, on Flickr They can also be found in this album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/train-pix/albums/72157709261326952 Hope they're of interest.
  4. By lucky chance I happened to be in Ruislip on the 15th June (for the Ruislip Lido Railway's 40th Anniversary) and by even greater chance I was staying at a hotel next to South Ruislip station! But not by chance, I made sure that I got there while 7029 was enjoying a little rest during its trip from Oxford to Oxford. My pictures are now on Flickr and this is the first one in the Photostream: RD19919. 7029 departing from South Ruislip. by Ron Fisher, on Flickr They can also be found in the 'Main Line Steam 2019' Album: Hope they're of interest.
  5. Afternoon All, Last month I paid a repeat visit to the London Transport Museum Depot at Acton in West London. This is where they keep all the stuff that won't fit into the museum itself at Covent Garden - and there's an awful lot of stuff, believe me! My pictures are now on Flickr, together with the pictures I took on my previous visit, so if anyone would like to have a look this is the link to the railway related pictures: If you are also interested in vintage buses, those pictures are here: Hope they're of interest.
  6. I went to Winchfield this morning to take a few snaps of MAYFLOWER on the 'Cathedrals Express'. They are now on Flickr and if anyone is interested to have a look, this is the first one in the Photostream: RD19580. 61306 approaching Winchfield. by Ron Fisher, on Flickr Alternatively, they can be found in this album; https://flic.kr/s/aHskSJjga3 Hope they're of interest.
