Freightliners G&W-Orange 66503 was recently rededicated (7 August 2022) to Railway Magazine to mark its 125th anniversary. Its full revised name is now 'Railway Magazine Celebrating 125 years 1897-2022'.Here it is seen approaching Clink Junction with '6Z42' the 10:42 empty jna boxes from Didcot-Milton Sdg's to Whatley Quarry.-----3 october 2022-----
Colas's Tractor 37175 is seen with a NR-Test Train today running as '3Q37' the 10:09 from Westbury to Derby R.T.C cia White Crossing at Merehead.I think the reason for this run is to check the track nr Quarry Junction on the Merehead Branch after repairs that were needed as a pair of Class-59's and a few wagons became derailed there a week or so ago.Pictured nr Styles Hill on the Frome Avoiding Line.This is quite unusual to see a Test-Train here as the regular booked runs always go via the Station loop and not the Avoider. --Note the ex-Great Western Motorail NVA Van 96604 directly behind the 37. That passed here many times as LCHS came this way when 'Great Western' used Class-47's!------11 september 2022------
Colas's 56049 'Robin of Templecombe' passes Miskin in very weak sunlight with '6Z51' the 16:02 from Baglan Bay with a consignment of logs going to Chirk-Kronospan for processing.------1 september 2022------
Here is the late replacement traction for 45596-Bahamas that sadly was not allowed to operate because of the severe hot and dry weather we are all experiencing currently. The fire risk from any steam loco exhaust sparks being deemed to severe.Anyway. A nice change was this pair of WC-Rly Cromptons 33029/33025 which were pressed into service instead..No complaint on my part for sure! Here they are with '1Z50' the 07:13 from Paddington going down to Minehead on the West Somerset Railway.Naturally the schedule was much quicker due to the lack of requirements for water stops,checks etc.The train is seen speeding down the Frome Avoiding Line near Styles Hill.----------------13 august 2022-------
This is Arriva-XC's flagship HST-Power Car 43184 (43384) which is now the star of the XC-Fleet. Here it is working '1E67' the 16:27 from Plymouth going to Leeds.Seen shortly after passing Yate in the northern suburbs of Bristol.------6 august 2022--------
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
