I am research with old railway and stations around the northamptonshire. I am looking some old photos of stations, railway and loco runs etc.
brings back real memories of the great steam era,
I have been looking for a great photo of 4084 'Aberystwyth Castle' that my Great Grandfather drove to frame along with buttons off of his GWR uniform and his WW2 lapel pin badge. Found a great picture of this and this will form a great family keepsake.
Old enough , but fortunate enough to remember the days of " real " steam , and your image of the two gas turbines 18000 and 18100 together at Swindon is the only shot that I have ever seen of these two together in many years of building an archive on them...it must surely be unique.
its a pleasure to look at part of our great railway history,i have purchased quite a few photos linked with my hobby ,long may you continue
My dad was a guard on these trains ,out of Kings Cross until 1956.Wonder if there are any pics of guards about fromthat era,,thanks. George leonard peacock was his name,known mostly as len x
Saddened to hear of the death of Hugh Ballantyne, a legend amongst photographers.
