We are on the move again at
The Helston Railway
Unfortunately I was still on route when this took place, however Chris Heaps, Chairman of the Charity Trustees of the Helston Railway kindly posed for this photograph.
We wish them well in this project. Well Done to you all.
I'm writing again following the discovery of an old photo of me, as a six-year old in the cab of a Class 52 Western. It was taken at Laira Open Day 1972 (I also found the programme!). I was wondering if anyone knew which Western was used for the cab photos on that day, and which other locos were on display.
I'd so love to know which loco I was sitting in all those moons ago!
Can anybody help please. (See entry on 2nd Sept for info)
Unlike most bridges that can be moved reasonably fast this one was a logistical nightmare.
Many thanks Mick.
Collett 2251 class 0-6-0 No. 3205 hauled two legs of this tour from Ilfracombe to Taunton and thence to Exeter. This double movement included what is believed to be the last use of the turntable at Taunton mpd.
Any ideas where this shot was taken?
