Some years ago I bought a box of colour prints online. They all have date and location details on the reverse, but no clue to the original photographer.
They provide a great record of BR rail operations from 60-65 years ago when the pace of everything was slower; and I have only vague childhood memories of that time.
Here are a few of them:-
5065 ‘Newport Castle’ speeds through Southall with a westbound passenger train on October 25th 1959.
L1 2-6-4T 67764 at Whitby West Cliff on a local passenger service in May 1958.
BR Standard 2-6-0 76011 heads a local passenger train near Cole in Somerset on June 19th 1959.
King Arthur class 4-6-0 30452 ‘Sir Meliagrance’ at Exeter Central on June 29th 1957.
0-6-0 57667 on Oban shed in July 1959.
ex-LMS pacific 46232 ‘Duchess Of Montrose’ outside Crewe Works after an overhaul in March 1959. (Sadly, at this time the loco had just over three and a half years to go).
ex-LNER pacific 60020 ‘Guillemot’ leaving York in March 1957.
