Grandaddy-GM Pioneer 59001 'Yeoman Endeavour' dodges the lengthening shadows as it slowly climbs Upton Scudamore Incline with '7O40' the fridays-only 13:35 from Merehead going down to Eastleigh Aggregate Sidings.Viewed passing the stubble fields where the once previously fallow fields have for the last 5 years or so have been given over to Maize production.

Here is a full set of converted Ex- Coal Hoppers (HTA) now rebuilt as HRA's,about 20% have been cut out of the centre making a more useful hopper for aggregate work.Hauled by DB's 66150 it is viewed passing Bratton on the B&H with '6M20' the 10:37 from Whatley Quarry going to Churchyard Sidings.Does the appearence of these wagons mean the end on the old orange 'rust bucket'ex-RMC's I wonder?-----------28 january 2019-------------
Locomotive Services Ltd owned Class-47 1733 or 47853 if you prefer, today worked '5Z80' the 08:19 from Crewe H.S taking Mk-2 Brake Coach 17080 owned by Statesman Rail down to Eastleigh-Arlington (ZG).Here seen running at quite a speed through Freshford in the Limpley Stoke Valley in an extreemly fortunate burst of 'almost' full sunshine.Any chances of sun looking up at the skies 30 minutes before would have been dismissed out of hand!-------21 january 2019-------
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
