The previous evenings Sleeper service from Penzance to Paddington that was cancelled due to the failure of 57603 is pictured passing Fairwood nr Westbury with the next-day positioning move up to Reading T&R.S.M.D.This ran as '5A40' the 09:15 from Penzance.57604 'Pendennis Castle' doing the job with the errant 57603 'Tintagel Castle' tagged on the rear.It is very unusual to catch one of these 'failed' Sleeper moves in the sun! Usually it is dark,dull and dank!------14 may 2019------
The NR Vegetation-Cutting Crew have been doing great work recently on the B&H around the Crofton area.This shot here on the Crofton-Curve is now once again possible after many years being lost to overgrowth. So here is GWR-Green 43198/43063 sweeping through Crofton with '1C79' the 06:47 from Penzance to Paddington.The only thing missing is the old occupation bridge that used to be in the background.That was removed a couple of years ago.----13 may 2019-----
GBRf's 50007 pretending to be 50014 'Warspite' trundles over the Common at Corfe Castle will a late afternoon service from Norden to Swanage..A superbly sunny day that thankfully coincided with this years Swanage Railway Diesel Gala.------12 may 2019------
As the HST clocks ticks on towards zero-day the only shot today I managed in decent light was 43185 'Great Western'/43092 flying down the Frome Avoiding Line with '1C85' the 14:03 from Paddington to Penzance.With several diagrams going over to Hitachi-Units as from Monday only a couple of rosters now remain on the Padd-Penz route. Careful use of 'Tiger' and several Devonian 'Groups' on Yahoo will help to identify the roster situation on a daily basis from now on!.---------27 april 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
