  2. Very happy days!! A normal spotting trip to Southall would yield 22's,42's,43's,52's,35's,a Pullman or two,and some named 47's that other regions didn't have. Not forgetting Falcon on most days..... Neil
  3. You have a good memory Jeff! I saw Foxhound several times in the spring of '71. By October,she was in store at Old Oak with 823 D809 and 842. Great name for a loco....

  6. Hi Nidge, Interesting collection of shots there,I like to see pictures taken from the footbridge at Southall,where I spent a lot of time as a lad...Is that maybe a failed Warship being removed from a train? Main line loco's were not uncommon visitors to the depot at Southall,although on one Saturday afternoon back in October 1971 I was really surprised when 831 Monarch arrived on shed,only Warship I saw on the depot. More pictures please! Neil
  7. Hi Tony, Am more or less positive that No. 20 was on display at the depot,to back this up I remember seeing a picture either in a magazine or somewhere on this esteemed site of the loco on display. I wonder if I did see 1508,or was it a slip of the pen... Neil

Neil
  9. Terrific stuff Phil-very inspirational! Neil
  10. Hi Tony, The Peaks were seen at the station,I never visited the stabling point.Looking at my records for that era,that seems to be a usual amount of Peaks,yes several visits were made,alternating with spending more time at Kings Cross,which was a fabulous place to watch activity. Neil
  11. Fabulous collection Phil! Can I ask a couple of questions? Did Royal Oak in MFYE carry a blue data panel; do you have the nameplates for Victorious and if so are they the re-drawn ones? Cheers, Neil

  13. Hi Dave, Back in the mists of time you were enquiring about the livery on 37705. I've now been able to get a copy of my print done.I have to say that I'm disappointed with the quality,it's not as sharp as my original,which obviously I want to keep.I should probably have got a copy using the negative,but that would be hard to find right now... However,you're welcome to have a copy if you still need it,not sure how we would arrange this? Neil

My mate and I were walking up the wide staircase which led to the Underground at Liverpool Street when I heard a noise,looked round to see 8204 arriving on vans,30 seconds later would have missed it-the only one I saw in service.
