The almost 'ready to run' 2999 or as it is shown here as 2983 'Redgauntlet' sits on display on the turntable in Didcot Railway Centre.
It is only in this black livery for a short time as when it is ready for steaming in the Spring of 2019 it will be finished in GWR-Green.Luckily it was a perfect day lightwise for these one time only valedictory shots.

The dedicated Pullman liveried 67021 passes over the River Avon at Bradford-on-Avon with '1V80' the 09:45 from London-Victoria 'Belmond British Pullman' to Bath Spa.Similarly liveried 67024 was on the rear somewhere!------24 october 2018------
With the light up and down like a yo-yo it was something of a miracle that this shot turned out as good as it did.As the train was slowly passing the tree throwing a quite large shadow the entire scene was quite a lot duller.Then somehow it all lit up plus a bit of help from photoshop to produce this image shown here.So here is 60062 'Stainless Pioneer' with '7C31' an STP from Theale (10:26 off) to Whatley Quarry.A quite unusual working for a Saturday morning passing Berkley Marsh slowing for Clink Junction.It was held there to allow '1C80' to pass thus allowing me to grab a 2nd shot which was nice!.------13 october 2018------
A rather wider shot of the arrival of RHTT '3S33' from Cheltenham via Severn Tunnel Junction at Gloucester.56105 leads with 56096 on the back.On arrival they ran into Horton Yard here in Gloucester to refuel and refill the RHTT section with its chemicals and water ready for the next tour of duty that evening.---------10 october 2018--------
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
