Belmond Pullman liveried 67024 runs away from Bath Spa as an ECS '5Z71' the 13:34 from Bath to Bristol East Depot after dropping off its passenger from '1Z70' the 09:47 from London-Victoria as a Belmond Pullman luxury Excursion.Sadly this time of year precludes any chance of shots of the return working as the sun sets now at just after 16:00.-----25 november 2023-----
Running in the best lighting probably for weeks 66415 'You Are Never Alone' approaches Fairwood Junction with '6C50' the 12:45 from Oxford-Banbury Road to Whatley Quarry with its train of returning empty JNA's.-------7 november 2023--------
The main reason for my short visit to Freshford in the Limpley Stoke Valley was the passing of this returning ECS '5Z43' the 12:53 from Eastleigh-Arlington to Crewe-HS.It being the HST pairing of 43047 and 43046 reliveried as a repro-Midland Pullman.This 'full length' set of nine coaches is the only full size hst-set now working in the entire country with the recent demise of the Arriva-XC fleet.-------------------------15 october 2023------
A rather sad shot really.This is 43008 in Inter-City' colours along with 43007 in 'Original' style on the rear making their final journey in normal revenue earning service.They are to be removed at Plymouth and prepared in readiness for a farewell railtour at the end of September.Arriva-XC liveried examples will take their place on the booked return working. So here is '1V50' the 06:06 from Edinburgh to Plymouth viewed at Parson Street in Bristol....Thankfully it was a superb full sun day for this fairly historic albeit quite sad working.-------------5 september 2023-----
'Pinky' 66587 'AS ONE WE CAN' is partnered with G&W 59206 on this mornings '7A09' the 07:12 from Merehead going up to Acton-TC.Here seen at Berkley Marsh trailing a pretty dramatic plume of mendip dust behind it!-----5 september 2023-----
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
