Here is (for me) the rather elusive 66779 'Evening Star' that has for the previous 3 days worked this train '4Y19' the 12:30 from Mountfield Sidings to Southampton Western Docks empty boxes to collect a load of Gypsum.A cold day but the trip down to here on my motorcycle was well worth the effort!----------11 april 2019----------
Unbelievably although this loco has been a regular in Westbury now for many months this is the first time I have managed a shot with the sun on the front end of it in GBRf colours.Its regular duty before the GBRf takeover of several engineering duties out of Westbury was '6M40'.This working was always backlit when departing northwards just after midday from Westbury.So here is 59003 on the first GBRf operated '6O41' from Westbury to Eastleigh East Yard.GBRf's previous regular duty '6M40' has now been given over to Colas.All very entertaining I must say. The train is viewed in sparking light passing the small church at Little Langford in the Wylye Valley.Hopefully some of the GB-Celebs will make occasional appearences as well---you never know.The Westbury Area Hotstop just got a little bit hotter!---------1 april 2019--------
The Queen visited Castle Cary this morning and she arrived there after spending the night in Fairwater Yard to huge crowds and much flag waving.The train then returned to somewhere in the London Area (All very secretive) but thanks to OTT I was able to track it as '1Z90' so I knew it was coming! RTT of coarse displayed nothing! So here is 67005 'Queens Messenger' looking immaculate as expected with partner 67006 on the rear of the little used these day Royal Train.Note the small adjustment of the loco livery along the lower bodyline.It looks much nicer than the crude red strip these engines carried previously.The ECS (apart from all the staff and servants) is viewed passing Berkley Marsh nr Frome in nice sun albeit with some residual mist in the distance.--------------------28 march 2019--------
43188 'The Welshman/Geriant Thomas' heads another scratch-set along with 43042 forming a 2+4 'Castle Class' HST.Viewed working '2U08' the 08:41 from Westen-Super-Mare to Cardiff-Central passing through the Parson Street/Malago Vale area west of Bedminster. --------26 march 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
