This was a nice piece of luck! As this working '7O40' the 13:35 from Merehead to Eastleigh crept into view at about 10 mph (The loco was having quite a struggle climbing the Upton-Scud Incline) in the low late afternoon sun that had just popped out and also coinciding with an RAF Boeing-Chinook Helicoper carrying an underslung load. Bell-End leading 59201 is viewed at Arn Hill nr Warminster.---------------------------4 december 2020--------
After a morning of intense rain and extreme dullness the odds of getting this working '5Z02' from Weymouth (11:30 off) to Bristol-High Level were thought to be practically zero.Amazingly sod's law worked in my favour today and as Colas's 37099 came into view a short interval of sunshine coincided with its passing.A nice long set of test-coaches including what appears to be an ex-caledonian sleeper day-coach.DBSO-9702 which led going to Weymouth being on the rear of the formation.-----31 october 2020------
This DCR Contract from Westbury Down TC to Southampton Up Yard was just a 3-day contract,this being the final day.Amazingly I got lucky as the sun was shining in a clear blue patch of sky at this prime spot to record its passing. So here is the newest DCR rescued loco from the Toton-Dump 60029 still with its original nameplates 'Ben Nevis' working 6Z91' the 16:28 from Westbury to Southamptom moving spent ballast.Wagons being the almost brand new set of VTG boxes.Viewed on the Upton Scudamore Incline on the reverse curve at Lower Old Dilton.------9 october 2020------
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
