Headstone Lane: Class 47 in ^Police^ livery on a northbound car-train at Headstone Lane. As I took this picture, with the train approaching, the 47 was making such a racket I thought it was going to collapse into pieces !
London and Birmingham Railway
Bernard Holland [04/07/2003]


Maxwelltown: Road approach to the former Maxwelltown station in 2017. The station, now a private residence, closed to passengers in 1939. The former station yard off to the right saw use as a rail served fuel distribution depot for several years. The last remaining section serving the former ICI works at Cargenbridge, less than two miles west of here, finally closed in 1994. [Ref query 1025]

Uplawmoor: A view of the concrete southbound platform at Uplawmoor taken from the remains of the northbound platform. To the north/east of here the trackbed remained in a remarkable state of preservation for several miles in the 1980s with each sleeper indentation obvious in the ballast, up until it was dug up for a gas main.

Middleden: The Halbeath Waggonway served pits to the east of Dunfermline and also local industries and ran to Inverkeithing Bay, finally closing in 1867. This view looks north along the course of the waggonway towards the fence marking the boundary with the M90 motorway in 1988, over 120 years after closure. The location is close to Middleden on this NLS map.

Newton Stewart: The old locomotive shed at Newton Stewart, officially closed on the last day of 1959.The building looks to be in a much better condition than it was 10 years ago, having since been taken over by a vehicle servicing and repair company and equipped with a new roof [see image 15246]. View is north east towards the station site in May 2017, looking along the trackbed of the former Whithorn branch.

Brotton: This is looking south, the line is from Boulby potash mine. Much of the output from the mine is transported by rail, as the site is located south of Loftus along the route of the former Cleveland Railway and Whitby Redcar and Middlesbrough Union Railway. Today the line is open from Saltburn to Boulby for goods traffic only. Teesport handles most of the bulk cargo export from the mine, via a specific potash and rock salt terminal. The Cleveland Way is to the left.

Ordsall Chord: Looking south west from near Salford Central station on 19 May 2017 across the site of the new Ordsall Chord. Since my last visit the large brown girders are now almost complete over Trinity Way with only a short section to be fitted before reaching the new bridge over the River Irwell.

Dunblane: An Edinburgh service pulls out of Dunblane after a few minutes wait for the road. The starter signal on the up side is MAS while the down starter is still old tech. Both are controlled by Dunblane box, just visible behind the bridge. It^s quite remarkable, when you think about it, that Victorian technology survives in this day and age - and there seems to be no hurry to replace it!

London Extension (Great Central Railway)
Peter Todd [06/05/2017]


Wuhan: Wuhan railway station. Train C5606 consisting of CRH2 stock has just arrived from Huanggang. The C-train could probably be described as a provincial inter-city train. A comparable service in Scotland might use a 158 or 170 ... well, there^s no comparison really ...! Wuhan station opened in 2009 with the opening of the Nanjing-Hefei-Wuhan high speed line. 7 May 2017.

Palma: The low point, quite literally, of Majorcan Railways. This is Palma station in 1991, when the once extensive island network had been reduced to the tourist line to Soller and the 26km main line to Inca. The metre gauge diesel railcar on the left shuttled between Inca and Palma but other lines beyond Inca had been closed. The burnt out depot and railcar in the background summed it up really. Thankfully, since then, the line has been extended beyond Inca, electrified and also now terminates in an underground station in Palma connecting into the new Metro services. Soller services still run but from their own separate surface station.

Glasgow Queen Street: The frontage of Queen Street station on George Square with the Millenium Hotel (older than the railway, it was the Queen^s Hotel, then the North British Hotel) to the right. The statue to the left is of Robert Peel, Prime Minister from 1834-35 and 1841-46, and was erected in 1859. He was a supporter of Free Trade, repealing the Corn Laws.

Craiglockhart: ^Flying Scotsman^ at Slateford pulling out onto the WCML from the Craiglockhart Connection with 1Z44 ^Cathedrals Express^ for Appleby, running on time after a late start from Waverley was recouped while awaiting the WCML path at Slateford. Out of sight at the rear of the train is 47746 ^Chris Fudge^ which provided more assistance in rear once the whole train was on the main line - hence a fairly rapid acceleration away towards Kingsknowe.

Aylesbury: The start of the final week of Chiltern Railways Bubble Car operation shows both units, the last 1st generation DMUs in main line service, parked up at Aylesbury earlier on the Monday afternoon (150517).

Yeoford: The 12.27 Exeter St Davids to Barnstaple service draws into Yeoford request stop on 22 April 2017. The station waiting shelter incorporates a free, community-organised lending library (well, actually a couple of shelves of books). The rusting rails of the bi-directional Dartmoor line in the foreground disguise the fact that it is still operational, despite the loss of aggregates traffic from Meldon Quarry (now closed), which formerly generated up to seven trains a day. A passenger charter operated from Paddington to Okehampton in February 2017 and the summer-only service from Exeter to Okehampton, supported by the County Council, is due to resume operation in May.
North Devon Railway and Dock
David Spaven [22/04/2017]


Dunblane: A through service to Glasgow pulls into Platform 1 at Dunblane while the ex-Edinburgh train waits in the reversing stub to replace it and return to the capital. The Edinburgh train had arrived in Platform 3 (left). These manoeuvres may seem a little unnecessary when Platform 3 is off the main line, but the Platform 3 track has no southbound connection with the up line. Platform 1 is also more accessible for passengers.
Scottish Central Railway
David Panton [18/05/2017]


Oban Bay: The then recently-launched Calmac ship MV Claymore is seen leaving Oban bound for Castlebay and Lochboisdale in the summer of 1979. She was the third ship to carry that name in ferry service.

Helsby: 40025, formerly named Lusitania, calls at Helsby with a North Wales to Manchester service in November 1980. Wisps of steam from the front end indicate the boiler is working. Beyond the loco a Park Royal Class 103 DMU can be seen waiting in the adjoining platform to make another shuttle run through Ellesmere Port to Hooton.

Appleby: Colas 60080 thunders through Appleby with the Carlisle to Chirk timber train on 10th May 2017. This train has a path to run either via the S&C or over Shap. I nearly missed it as I was browsing in the station bookshop but heard it approach and managed a shot.

Quorn and Woodhouse: On display at the Great Central Railway gala on 6 May 2017 were the smokebox and cab of the new build Clan project. Bearing the number 72010, which would have been next in the Clan series if the order hadn^t been cancelled, these initial parts of the locomotive, which will carry the name Hengist, are seen here in the yard at Quorn & Woodhouse.

Dunlop: A Swindon Class 126 DMU passes through Dunlop on a very wet 19th June 1974. The DMU is heading south on the former northbound track. Single line working had been implemented pending the lifting and relaying of the nearer track, which ultimately would be the remaining track until recent re-doubling. (Comment from Michael Laing; That^s a Class 126 inter-city DMU. Note the headcode panels, white circle MU code and buckeye coupler.)

Crediton: The 13.43 service from Barnstaple to Exeter and Exmouth waits to cross the 13.53 from Exmouth at Crediton station and loop on 22 April 2017. The attractive station buildings have recently been repainted in London & South Western Railway colours. From here to Cowley Bridge Junction in Exeter the line is controlled by Track Circuit Block. Services on the Barnstaple branch seem to be predominantly operated by Pacers, and one is therefore thankful that - surprisingly - most of the route has been re-laid with CWR!

Waverley: Skinhead BR Type 2 5015 and BRCW 5307 await departure from Edinburgh Waverley with the ^Scottish Steam Special No.3^ on 8th September 1973. A4 60009 would take over from Inverkeithing.

Struan Viaduct: Struan Viaduct is just east of the former Struan station. Viaducts would be more accurate - the single track Highland main line was doubled from Blair Atholl to Dalnacardoch in 1900, requiring a second bridge. Singling came in 1966, but fortunately both the bridges were retained and it was re-doubled in 1978. The bridges cross both the River Garry and the B847. The original bridge is on the left and ^new^ bridge on the right. The view looks west.

Barnstaple: The traditional running-in board seen at Barnstaple (formerly Barnstaple Junction) station on 22 April 2017. The station - junction for no fewer than four different standard-gauge lines in its heyday, and formerly boasting three through platforms - is now just a single-track terminus, although a short loop remains in situ south of the station. However, loco-hauled charter trains rarely visit the branch, as structures limit the line speed to 30 mph (60 mph for diesel units).
