That looks like an Austerity Q1, were they allowed on pretty coach duties?

 

Was it actually a bridge that was created to carry a Ton?

Hi Julian, some pictures on the Mike Morant site. https://mikemorant.smugmug.com/Trains-Railways-British-Isles/SR-and-BRS/SR-2-6-0s-0-6-0s/i-zphGXcm/A

You may be right about Tonbridge but I suspect not https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/uploads/emoticons/default_biggrin.png. All the best Adrian.

The Medway goes right through the middle of Tonbridge. Not to be confused with Tunbridge Wells. Tonbridge is by far the older town but I’m not sure of the origins of the name.

I like the chestnut fencing, something not very often modelled but very common up to the 1960's.

Yes, thanks. I like it too. Very easy and very effective.

There are plenty of photos available of Q1s on passenger work. often on secondary lines, but also on ECS workings at major stations such as Waterloo,

Some more steam, this time of coming from an unfinished Manor locomotive storming over the Dawlish sea wall.

Another wonderful image- the eye is drawn to one of the most perceived (wrongly) least interesting and mundane items of railway rolling stock, but it eclipses the other vehicles that would normally take centre stage!

The NRN antenna is a bit wonky (just an observation, not a criticism!).

The driver is inspecting the insides of the smokebox, whilst puffing away on his pipe and the fireman has got an e-cig going whilst wondering how the scrap metal thieves got in and nicked the bottom half of the firebox.
