After several months when 'Thumbnails' were appearing overlarge (depending of which Browser was being used) my Server appears to have rectified the problem.Difficulties I have encountered for quite along time associated with sizing thumbnails and text now seem to be cleared.Work for me within the Website is now much easier-Hopefully for those viewing it things are much better as well.If you are still having problems add a 'comment' just to let me know the current status.Thanks.Tom C (January 2017)
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!
With the entire line from Bradford-Junction to Bathampton closed as an engineering blockade this working bound for probably Bath-Spa creeps through the closed section at about 5mph as per the regulations no doubt.Colas's 66847 was leading 4 sets of fully loaded HQA's making a total of 20 bogies.Just visible on the rear is 66849 which will no doubt return the discharged train back to Westbury tomorrow sometime.The train,'6C23' the 15:49 from Westbury to nominally Bradford-Junction (The start of the occupation) is seen at Freshford approaching the station there.This is another local location that has had severe remedial work to get rid of the overgrowth of trees and bushes

The still gleaming 66041 with 66024 sandwich a train of new sleepers bound for use in an engineering occupation somewhere east of Bristol either nr Keynsham or Bath-Spa..Working is listed as '6W11' the 14:40 from Westbury to Bristol-East via Taunton.Here viewed at the now incredibly pristine Fairwood nr Westbury.Even the famous White Horse has had a recent smartening up performed on it!------22 april 2017------
Todays '1Z22' Test-Train from Tyseley-L.M.D (08:14 off) going to Bristol via Weymouth passes Masters Crossing at Fairwood nr Westbury heading west.Newish Colas recruits 67023 was leading with 67027 on the rear.Originally I was going to go to Cole south of Bruton but this working having lost an hour off its schedule made that location a non starter due to the reduced sun-angle.Note the trains first coach is optmistically fitted with a pantagraph.Lets hope there is never a need for that piece of test-kit in this area!------------19 april 2017-------
'90 Glorious Years' 43027 headed todays '1A78' the 06:45 from Penzance to Paddington.43028 was on the back.This is the HST's on this route's final summer in monopoly service before the 'cheapo' IEP's appear towards the end of the year.So I am kinda making the most of them before they are mostly exiled to Scotland!-------19 april 2017-------
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
