This DCR Contract from Westbury Down TC to Southampton Up Yard was just a 3-day contract,this being the final day.Amazingly I got lucky as the sun was shining in a clear blue patch of sky at this prime spot to record its passing. So here is the newest DCR rescued loco from the Toton-Dump 60029 still with its original nameplates 'Ben Nevis' working 6Z91' the 16:28 from Westbury to Southamptom moving spent ballast.Wagons being the almost brand new set of VTG boxes.Viewed on the Upton Scudamore Incline on the reverse curve at Lower Old Dilton.------9 october 2020------
For me this is about as good as it gets with this loco! So here is GBRf's 'Evening Star' 66779 passing the 1863 rebuild of the original 12th century Church of St Nicholas of Mira at Little Langford in the Wylye Valley. The working is the regular '6O41' 10:14 from Westbury to Eastleigh's East yard.The load today being 5-JJA's and 10 HQA's. Well worth the 50 miles round trip for just this one photograph!--------------------22 september 2020----------
Here is the Charter '1Z30' from Crewe to Weymouth via Eastleigh running bang on time passing Towns End Farm Crossing in Wylye in the valley of the same name.47593 leads with 2-tone green D1935 inside.Makes a change from the usual GM's! ------16 september 2020------
My 'voodoo spell with 66415 continues.This time in full light unbelievably screwed by 59206 going the other way..Still quite an interesting shot!..So here is 66415 coming up from Fairwater Yard to Westbury as '6C72' whilst 59206 goes west with '7C29' from Acton to Merehead.At least it was first 'double' G&W-Orange meeting!------15 september 2020------
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
