MOD traffic from the usually very quiet Army Depot at Warminster seems to be on the increase! Here is 66705 'Golden Jubilee',once famous for its large flag-logo when in its original GBRf livery is seen with '6Z07' the 15:20 away from Warminster loaded with military vehicles bound for Mossend Down Goods Loop in Scotland.Amazingly on such an indifferent day cloudwise this working passed whilst I was enjoying the largest patch of blue sky all day overhead!------24 september 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
