    Default My Historic UK Railway Photos

    Improved versions of my photos are now available to view on Google + . They are mostly of British steam and early diesels taken between 1959 and 1963, with some later photos from the 1980s.

    Thanks, really cool pictures. Seeing the album gives a much better feeling of what UK railroading was all about.

    Alan,

    The shots in South Devon took me back, I was brought up in Plymouth in a house which overlooked the line between Laira and North Road. It was nice to see the North British Type 2s piloting steam over the banks, they only did that for a couple of years.

    Lots of interest in the other albums, too.

    No, the line between Plymouth and Newton Abbot has grades of about 3%. During the change over from steam to diesel it was common to see both diesel piloting steam and steam piloting diesel (with both working). The diesels in those shots have Hydraulic transmission, rather than Electric transmission. The Western Region of British Railways (as it was then) had mainly Diesel Hydraulics for many years. Gradually they were phased out and replaced by Diesel Electrics.
    onen hag oll!
