(F) Elsewhere in Telford 2010

The pictures posted under the MOMING’10 heading have already covered the exhibition and the few I took there would merely be duplicates. A comment there made the point that exhibitors often don’t get to see much of the remainder of the show never mind any nearby attractions. On this occasion the nea...

My two pictures show a near meeting between a Trabant and a metre gauge horse tramway in Döbeln taken last October. Unfortunately the Trabant had moved off before the tram (pulled by 'Elko') came round the corner. The horse tramway is a resurrection of part of the original line that had run from 189...

(F) Rail Mounted air drill

Found this rail-mounted piece of equipment and photographed it earlier this year at the Black Country Living Museum’s colliery. It gives the impression of having been assembled from bits found in the scrap box. I don’t have the details of its origin but I assume it is a drill of some kind and that i...

(F) 18" Gauge Survivor -- Chatham

A visit to the Chatham Model Railway Exhibition gave the opportunity to see some surviving 18” gauge track that includes the mixed gauge weighbridge seen in the first picture. I should perhaps explain that the exhibition venue is in the former naval dockyard that once had a very extensive network of...

Ex WD Bogie full dropside wagons - query

John, Since posting the previous two pictures I made a quick foray to Pages Park knowing that a D wagon was either outside the shed or formed in the demonstration freight train that is running up to Saturday of this week. As luck would have it the wagon was formed up in the train (worked by Brigadel...

Here is a view of a 15” gauge locomotive. I know little about it as I did not even take the picture and have never been to the location. However no copyright infringement is involved since the photographer was my wife and I do have her permission to publish it. The picture was taken at Cricket St Th...

I naturally took far too many repetitive shots during the day but here are a few that I hope give a flavour of the day. Rishra is posed against a suitable industrial backdrop. The locomotive was built in my home town of Burton upon Trent a number of years before I was born. After service in Calcutta...
