All the Best, Andrew. Many thanks Andrew
Royal Albert Bridge
For some reason the majority of images that I took around 10th August 1972 – clearly on the same roll of film – have suffered the same fate.
On 10th August 1972 I spent the morning on the Gunnislake branch, travelled by dmu to Saltash before walking across the Tamar road bridge and spending the afternoon on the Devon side of the bridge photographing all and sundry , the majority of which was of course loco hauled.
Here are three that I’ve had great difficulty scanning and restoring the colours to an acceptable level. Unfortunately I’ve failed completely, these three being ‘the best’. Oh well, these things happen... Are they better in black and white??
84 works off the bridge with a northbound parcels train.
1026 Western Centurion heads into Cornwall with a wonderful mixed freight.
1059 Western Empire – despite its headcode – works the Penzance portion of the 1130 off Paddington.
Best regards Ron.
Many thanks indeed Ron we're so lucky that you have saved what you did.
