  4. I've had a look through from page 1 and not seen any photo's of this, so think it's safe to post these 2. Location, Leyton Yard early 70's
  5. My apologies for that Guys. Must have missed it.
  6. Anyone like to have a guess at this one. Photo taken I believe in the 70's at Peterborough.
  7. Click on the photo, takes you to the flickr site with more details of location.
  8. Interesting looking bit of stock up against buffer stop.
  9. Going to stick my neck out on this and say that I'm fairly certain that the photo of the 2 railway men with their hats up, is Blackheath station. Left hand side is the bay platform and a siding, that later on, a weed killer train was kept. The water tanks were L1 tenders I've been told. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackheath_railway_station#/media/File:Blackheath_railway_station_1814222_fec4318b.jpg The canopies on both sides were shortened at some point. The tall dark area on the right between the support and the start of the wall posters, is the door to the downside staff room.
  10. Some very fond memories of Manningtree station. Used change there to go see my grandparents who lived in Dovercourt. The best day of my young life ( 13-14 yo ) was a cab ride in a class 37, all the way from Liverpool St to Manningtree. The platforms were shorter then, so the loco had to pull past the ramp, can you imagine what it was like for me to climb down off the loco and walk back to the platform at that age! The engine looked huge to me. When we went there, we changed onto the 'Little train ' to Dovercourt, that in it's self was a great line to travel back then. Happy days.
  11. Does it come apart easy or is it a mare and need a lot of hacking?
  12. These GBL's you speak of, am I right in thinking their the plastic ones that came with a magazine and you can bash them into a running loco?
  13. Some great early railway footage, Sykes equipment and a whole heap of over acting, what's not to like
