  8. Good evening, David. That’s a great selection of photo’s at Didcot in May, 1979. The first photo’ is a superb and well composed shot of the tank engine, and something is chalked on the top of the smokebox door. It seems to end …Man. I cannot see exactly what is before the ‘Man’. The black and white photo’s are an excellent and nostalgic set. JVol1307, of an LNER buffet car interior, c1948, is outstanding. It is full of details which will be of good use for modellers. Thank you for posting it. Very best regards, Rob.
  9. Good evening everyone. Firstly, it’s an informative discussion about the roof of Scarborough station. I have learnt infinitely more from it than over the last two and a bit years. I was in Scarborough today, and what I noticed again today was the smell of the diesel fumes. Again many thanks for the discussion and the information. This evening we have more photo’s to enjoy. They are courtesy of Andy Hughes, John Turner, and Philip Wheldale, all on Flickr. Firstly we take a look at 66414, as it slowly edges forward at the worksight at Hull Paragon Station, while 66555 stands in platform 3. 66414 would leave two hours late working as train, 6Y32, the 17:05 Hull Anlaby Road Junction - Doncaster Up Decoy, on the 16th April, 2022.

Best regards, Rob.
  10. Good evening, David. That is a fantastic set of photo’s of the Stockton and Darllington around Brussleton incline, in June, 1975, by your Dad, on an RCHS visit with Ken Hoole. J4443, of the cottages and engine house, is a great photo’ and there is excellent details for modelling purposes. The photo’s of Doncaster in 1979 and 1983 are a superb selection. The last photo’ of 37170 and another one, on a down empty mgr train, in October, 1983, is well composed and the 37’s make an impressive sight. Very best regards, Rob.
  11. Good evening, everyone. Firstly, Mike, that’s a good post about the current state of Scarborough station. I asked, in the booking office, about it at Easter and there was no information available. As you say it is actually quite disgusting. It is so dark and miserable. A bad advertisement for visitors to the seaside resort. This evening it is time for more photo’s to enjoy, courtesy of knoxrj, George Woods, John Law, and Richard Stewart, all on Flickr. We see first a view of D49/2, 376, The Staintondale, on a Whitby train at Malton, on the 31st May, 1936. Next is a view of 37402, leading a RHTT working at Cottingham, on the 21st October, 2021. We now have a photo’ of two two-car class 108’s at Bridlington, on a service to Hull, from Scarborough, in May, 1986. Finally, it is time for a photo’ of 60163 "Tornado", as it passes Anlaby Road Junction on train, 1Z70, the Hull to Carlisle "The Ribblehead Rambler" charter, on the 30th September, 2021. This was the first steam hauled train to depart from Hull Paragon in 14 years. Best regards, Rob.
  12. Good evening, David. That’s a great set of photo’s of Hexham and around Corbridge on the Newcastle to Carlisle line are a superb selection. The last photo’ at Corbridge Dilston crossing, with a Class 37 on an up pw train, in July, 1983, is a great view of the train, and a former Gresley corridor carriage can be seen as a mess carriage. The photo’s of the Midland Main Line with four photo’s at Leicester and one at Nottingham, are a superb set. The first photo’ of a Class 45, on an up ecs, on the 9th August, 1977, is an excellent shot, and the first vehicle looks like an outside framed Siphon G with the top half of the sides panelled over. Very best regards, Rob.

Best regards, Rob.
  14. Good evening David. That’s a fantastic selection of photo’s of the Cumbrian Coast line, with trains on Arnside viaduct over the Kent estuary, in June, 1976. The last photo’ of a two car Class 108, on a down service, is an excellent photo’ and it captures the full length of the viaduct perfectly. The black and white print of B1, 61092, on an up class F, ordinary goods train, from Cambridge to Hitchin, at Hauxton crossing, in September, 1948, is a real gem of historical interest. The photo’s from Northumberland, at Ashington and Freeman's crossing on the Blyth and Tyne, are a superb set. The last photo’ at Freemans Crossing, with 56117, Wilton Coalpower, on a coal train to Blyth power station, on the 25th July, 1996, is a splendid three quarter portrait shot of both the 56 and its train.
