The immaculate 67006 'Royal Sovereigh' today had the job of taking the ECS for tomorrows steam excursion using 60163 'Tornado' from Bristol to Tenby to Bristol-TM in readiness. Here is that ECS '5Z18' the 15:21 away from Eastleigh-Arlington (ZG) passing a lovely sunny Arn Hill nr Warminster .I saw this train held in the distance up in Warminster for about 5-minutes thus it coincided when it got on the move again nicely with a brief patch of clear blueness-which was nice!------13 july 2019--------
The NR-Tester ran from Reading Triangle Sidings to Salisbury via Exeter and the Wylye Valley today.Its departure from Reading as '1Q23' was at 05:41 this morning.Here it is on the final leg back from Westbury to Salisbury passing the now very overgrown well known photospot at Sherrington..Time for a short session of bush clearing required here methinks? ------4 july 2019------
BR B1 4-6-0 61306 'Mayflower' despite appearances was working quite hard as it hauls its train around the tight curve away from Redbridge-Jn in Southampton.The air temperature being in the high 20's preventing the steam from condensing to form the more usual cloud of white water vapour! The train is '1Z46' the returning 14:36 from Weymouth going back up to Princes Risborough,

At first though to be a 6 weeks contract this working '6Z91' between Westbury and Southampton Up Yard looks like it may have ended after just 4 days due to lack of crushed ballast to transport! Thankfully I managed this shot on day-3 of the pair DCR 56's 56091/56103 powering up the Upton Scudamore Incline with its fully loaded set of about 16 boxes!How many years has it been since 56's worked stone trains away from Westbury----Decades for sure! -----26 june 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
