OK to kick things off a list of favourite galleries of all things hydraulic

Class 35 Hymek group on Flickr

DaveF's Flickr gallery

Deadman's handle Flickr gallery - Final year/railtour stuff

Fray Bentos's Western Flickr gallery - fellow Ex Downendian on Flickr

Nidge's Flickr gallery

Steve Boon's Western archive - great, been on the web for years but brillliant

Trainsferriesbusses website - More hydraulic fun

Les Tindall's Western and Hymek gallery - Early 1970s gems

Brian Thomas's Hymek website- For all Class 35 fans

The KDH archive https://flic.kr/p/kqFnd1 D6337 first but scroll through that lot! My favourite batch to have emerged on Flickr - summer 1969 and all that!

Downendian here is a site I use http://www.jboon.fsn...l52livery1.html

 

It was good to see the photos of 1010 on the Western Requiem railtour what I went on. It was a bit of a round trip, being as how I was living in Lancashire.

Just discovered "The KDH archive" on flickr, with galleries on most hydraulic classes including this one on the Westerns http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157634818516912/

 

It contains some magnificent photos, including this one of Hero almost devoid of blue paint

http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/9709825201/in/set-72157634818516912

 

and this one of D1059 departing Plymouth North Road for Cornwall with the remnants of the Millbay branch in the foreground

http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/9359419008/in/set-72157634818516912

 

A new flickr member in 2013, it makes you wonder how many other collections are waiting to be given a wider audience. 

 

EDIT: I pasted the website hyperlink, so I'm not sure why the photos are being streamed. I've reported myself in case it breaches copyright and the link needs to be changed.

Hi all,

 

pictures of hydraulics of any class hauling/propelling Inspection Saloons seem to be rarer than hens teeth - if anybody has any that they would be prepared to post here, or can point me in a particular direction, I would be more than grateful.

 

regards

 

Mike

Mike, I've just seen your request. There's one on my Flikr site http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/10422133144/in/set-72157636832767166

Hi Andy,

 

that is great, many thanks for posting. It looks as if the Inspection Saloon is DB999506 with E's branding - handy as Easy-build have just brought a 7mm kit out for this Diagram 1/552 Inspection Saloon - see also Brian Daniels build thread of DB999508 here on RMweb

 

cheers

 

Mike

Take a look at the KDH archive that I've put a link for in post 1 of this thread or here

https://flic.kr/p/kqFnd1 edit - scroll backwards first.

D6337 as landing point - click forward and backwards from that photo.

Wow just wow - May 1st 1969 first date to set on the time machine South Devon sea wall

Might it be possible to get the Mods to merge this thread with Neil's other hydraulic one?

Thanks Jonny but I'd prefer to keep this thread for Flickr and other galleries on the web with BB linking where this is possible. I'd also like to keep my photo thread where there has been great interactions and people including yourself posting their superb photos when they don't have their own dedicated thread or Flickr streams.

Hi Mike,

 

many thanks for posting the Hymek with what looks like a Q13 Inspection Saloon, but I cannot place the Saloon livery, it looks almost like Inter-City - I hope that it is as I am building DW80975 in that livery and need an excuse to get a Hymek! Wallet about to get a pounding at the GOG show at Kettering tomorrow.

 

Cheers

 

Mike

I have rounded up as many of my father's diesel hydraulic photos as I can find. They are posted on the ipernity photo-sharing site, along with the rest of his railway photos and my more recent ones. 

The links are

http://www.ipernity.com/doc/philsutters/26485611

 

If you want to download any of these for personal or other non-commercial reasons please do. The ipernity site has had a bit of a wobble recently, so you could find these links disappear. I thoroughly dislike Flickr's style now and don't know where, if anywhere, our fairly large archive would go if ipernity did fold.

Best wishes to all for 2016
