Who owns 47 270 ? Must be someone like Harry Needle or Waterman to be in 'preserved' condition.
Those cl350's look cramped inside.Not passenger friendly on long distance journeys.


47270 is named SWIFT and is owned by West Coast Railways.

This is a good one. Really captures the atmosphere

Do they still do these kinda things scrap line tours etc or is this something else H&S and the threat of terrorism has removed from our lives.
I remember as a youngster the Scrap lines at Weavers on Fielding St and we were never out of there ... They broke everything from Steam locos to aeroplanes and was an Aladdins cave for a kid. think i still have a brass and glass water level from a steamer.
Oh the big vicious dug liked cola bottles

Don't know,Cybers.
Open days tended to be PR exercises often coinciding with some sort of milestone e.g. Glasgow works open day celebrated its 125th anniversary
in 1981.
Depot/works visits were organised by enthusiast groups and were usually guided.
Proceeds from both types of events would go to a local charity.You may be right in that " elf and safety " will have put an end to such events.

Whilst not a train person by any stretch of the imagination i am rather enjoying these so ckeep them coming...

44871 is in Scotland at the moment on the GB VI trip.

Went to Inverness today and is going to Kyle of Lochalsh tomorrow.

44932 is also mainline certified.

So its amazing to see 41 years later they are still both running.

6441 is at the Ribble steam railway in Preston on loan from the East Lancs Railway.

I will ask my pal on saturday if i see him as he is a guard at brechin
Glasgow Loon

The restoration of 46464 is still on going according to my pal.

He also said that due to politics it will not be run on the railway at brechin when its finished.

Nothing new there,then. They could have had a very interesting range
of motive power,if it were not for politics. One of the reasons the group
I was involved with left after many years.

I'll be travelling past there in October - looking forward to it   .

Strange thing is, I don't really have much (if any) interest in trains, it's the infrastructure I like.

Good wee set Doog Doog.

Strange thing is, I don't really have much (if any) interest in trains, it's the railway infrastructure that I find fascinating.

I took a friend of mine over to the West Somerset Railway at Williton and we got these pics. They don't mean much to me but some of you guys might be interested in them. The photographs were all taken in July 2010.

The steam train in the background is one of several which run regularly on the Bishop's Lydeard to Minehead line. The West Somerset Railway is run entirely by volunteers!
