Anyone like the romance of the old steam loco's

Woo Hoo, I used to be a train spotting"anorak" when I was a wee boy.
Central Station, Queen Street. Polmadie Loco Depot etc. There was another depot in the south side, used to get a bus to it, but blimey the names gone. Old age Tsk.

I still have my "train" book from way back then.
# 49 Gordon Highlander
# 256 Glen Douglas
# 45621 Nothern Rhodesia
# 46105 Cameron Highlander
# 46221 Queen Elizabeth
#46222 Queen Mary.
and more biggrin.gif

Here's a couple of crackers that I never spotted.

I love steam engines. Nice to see the L.M.S. and L.N.E.R. names again.

Sir Nigel Gresley went whooshing past here yesterday (Saturday ) morning. Also Tornado (newly-built engine ) occasionally comes past. Both on special excursions from Kings Cross.

Fantastic Stuff there Macbeast, luv it! happy.gif

I've been on both trains, Sir Nigel Gresley was up here in the spring running from Waverley station to Dundee and on the return leg the train was pulled by Union Of South Africa, all fantastic stuff...

In August, I took the plunge on the Settle & Carlisle line with Tornado pulling, what a fantastic journey that was!!

My Mate works with Network Rail and one night his "Sleep" (shouldn't be doing that!) on shift was disturbed by a large hissing and chuffing sound, waking his crew they went out to see what was going on. On one of the sidings was "Hogwarts Express" with a diesel behind it. As they clambered over it for a better look one of them asked the engine crew what the diesel was for " Oh that...." was the reply "....it couldn't make it over Beattock so we gave it a tow"

Enjoy the photos, there's nothing better than a steam train.....


P.S I've seen 4472 in the flesh at Crewe during (The Great Gathering 2005) when she still had German Smoke plates on her....

Cool, my relatives were the Neilsons, any pictures of their old engines.


We still got six old beasties in New Zealand from the 1870-90s.

They had a place down by Finneston road or street.

I read on another forum that, today, a 'Steamie' managed to do something that modern electrics and diesels have been unable to do lately, namely pull some carriages. What a blow to modern technological pride !

Tombro rolleyes.gif

P.S I also noticed, on a news report over here, that the modern London buses were having difficulty coping with ice on roads. A far cry from Glasgow Corporation Daimlers of the late fifties that seemed to take everything in their stride and always goet me and my family back to 'theDrum' in one piece, no matter what the weather ! Yet another blow for modern transport technology !

Tombro again biggrin.gif

Thanks for all the pictures and infor on these old locomotives. I've always had an interest in trains especially when we stayed in my family's Railway Inn in Lochmaben which was obviously clost to the railway station.

P.S. Conside this a non-post - I'm not a man laugh.gif laugh.gif
