Due to continued ongoing difficulties at the Web-Host the Browser 'Mozilla-Firefox' is giving problems with Thumbnail sizes (Since mid July thet are often way oversize for the page).Until this is fixed try 'Google-Chrome' or even 'Apple-Safari' (Available as a download for PC's).Apparantly these are working somewhat better currently.When the situation is sorted this notice is be removed--Sorry for this Hassle!
Always 'CLICK' thumbnails to view 'FULL PAGE' Image. Web-Browser Mozilla-Firefox gives a better experience whilst browsing older (slightly smaller)1240-853 images. Use Key F11 to get rid of the toolbars whilst viewing individual images.Use again to get them back!
A nice working to fill in a Sunday morning was this one '6X54' the
09:03 from Plymouth coming up to Westbury.56078 was making a
appearance here at Frome hauling the RailVac No-4.The sun was in and
out very quickly due to the fast moving clouds.Luckily a rather large
patch of cloud cleared literally a couple of seconds before this working
reached this spot.It wasn't hanging about either probably doing over
50mph! Most freights that pass this spot are doing more like 25!---------25 september 2016---------
This is my last ditch effort at pulling something out of the day when this rare pair of type-1's visited our part of the world.They are 20118 and 20132 leading '1Z16' the 16:05 from Swanage to London's Kings Cross.All part of
4-day tour laid on by GBRf to celebrate 15 years in the business.This shot was taken at 19:28 with sunset officially at 19:33 so considering the time of
day/night? it's not too bad an effort.1600-iso was necessary on my EOS to
allow me this slim chance of stopping the action.I achieved that (just).
Location is Arn Hill nr Warminster with the shot taken off the top of a 9ft
ladder leaning against a convenient electricity pole!

Here is an interesting juxtaposition.The contrast between 2-wheel pedal- power and 12 wheels delivering 3300HP! I know which one I prefer...
AI's 59004 'Paul A Hammond' gets its train '7B12' the 11:25 off Merehead
going to Royal Wootton Bassett away from Westbury past the stacked
pushbikes here in their special racking on platform 2/3.----01 september 2016----
Welcome to my Website. A Replacement for the one lost when Fotopic.Net failed in March-2011. Formally Site was known as 'TC-on-Tour/TomCurtisRailGallery'. Now just 'TomCurtisRailGallery'. Dedicated to all things Railway from the Early Sixties right through to the Present Day. (New Material added Regularly most Weeks). Updating with Current Material plus Additions from the Achives. Steam and Diesel going back to 1963 when I just 15 yrs old. Photographs are mostly in the Sun where possible. However the odd Worthy-Working is shown no matter what the Lighting or Weather conditions! (Recently included are occasional Video Clips!) Now Retired since 2009 (Great!) and still hanging around at Stations around on Bridges. See 'About Me' section for a short potted history of my railway interests and life. I live in Frome-Somerset. A fairly high proportion of my material will be shot within a 20 mile radius of Westbury-Wilts. Tom C
