So, I made a visit to Kemble today and these are some of my photos. I had hoped to see two other diverted workings but, for some reason they did not turn up. I also undertand that there was a problem at Gloucester
2. Glorious summer sunshine lights up the late running Night Riviera, viewed from the Motorcycle park at Penzance
3. 57306 with 57605 slow to stop at platform 4 at 09.05
A week of nights saw the Network Rail UTU train in action on the mainline and Newquay branch. 37175 sounded great growling around the Newquay line in the dead of night. Pictures taken at Newquay and Goonbarrow.
Back onto a day off on 8th July and a trip up to Treboul Farm near St Germans to savour WCR's 47826 chattering up the bank with a heavy load of Northern Belle carriages, and 47804 dead on the rear.
43093 is also pictured. The once pride of the Old Oak Common fleet of power car now looks rather jaded with peeling paint.
Best wishes, Craig
This is Sloane Square station (in the heart of Chelsea) – the tracks are clear but plenty of vegetation growing up and out of the walls. You might be interested that the green bridge you can see carries the River Westbourne over the platforms – one of London’s lost rivers.
Kind regards, Simon
