'Union of South Africa' 60009 works hard to make up lost time as it powers past Berkley Marsh with the final 'Torbay Express' of the 2019 season from Bristol-Temple Meads to Kingswear.The train '1Z27' left Bristol nominally at 08:00 but in fact was over 20 minutes down.However by the time it arrived at Taunton it was back on schedule after some brisk running as seen here.This is almost certainly the last time this loco will be pictured heading west towards Devon as it is due for withdrawal from mainline service very soon and interred in a museam in Scotland by its owner John Cameron.The cost of another full overhaul now becoming quite prohibitive running into well over seven figures! ---------8 september 2019----------

The LMS-Pacific 'Duchess of Sutherland' 6233 comes off the Golden Valley Line from the Swindon direction at Standish Junction with '1Z24' The Cotswold Venturer which departed Paddington at 07:40 bound for Worcester Shrub Hill.A very warm day which explains the total lack of steam (condensed water vapour) coming from the exhaust even though it was accelerating hard over the junctions reverse curves.Pictured from a public foot crossing.-----24 august 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
