A few random photos I've been scanning


Recommended Posts

  • RMweb Gold

I've been scanning a few of my old negatives, and am picking a few to put on RM Web each day over the Christmas period (hopefully).

I don't think they are on flickr, unless I have put a colour slide version on.

Wow! Some great shots on there, iv seen a couple before on there but what great photography, now for a cheeky question, would you have any pics of the old leeds northern from dragon junction through bilton crossing and on to n'allerton? I would love to see some more pics from there, specially if theres any from the bilton coal drops sidings & loops, its the basis of my long term layout so would be very grateful for any more unpublished pics

thanks again

james

Hi James,

Many thanks for the comment. I only have a couple north of Harrogate, they are on my flickr site of trains south of Ripon in the last couple of days before closure. In those days I was still at school so relied on Dad for transport so had to go where he went - usually Pilmoor or the S&C.

Anything from the area around Derby Dave?

At the moment only the colour shots on flickr, one of the sets is Derby in the 60s and 70s at:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/davidwf2009/collections/72157626274215250/

 

I think I have some post war ones around Derby to scan once I have catalogued them properly.

Lovely stuff Dave, many thanks for sharing those.... that Deltic shot from 1965 really does hit the spot, looks very 'modelable' too. I can just picture it in grainy colour as well, with the two tone green livery on the loco and brown and cream Pullmans standing out against the greyness.... smashing!

3 bonus pictures from one of Dad's albums taken in the 40s and 50s.  They were printed on a lustre (textured) paper which sometimes causes small white spots when scanned owing to reflections.

Camera details are given for interest - at the time the family had a photographic shop and business.
