Happy New Year to you both!! And not forgetting all our other forum members.

My photos too are on a fotopic site as and when I can get out to get some photos: http://andysteamgallery.fotopic.net/
As for Nick's photos; I would go as far to say that these are a fantastic bunch of photos of old and new ones that I visit regularly to drool over!! There are many more out there. Mine are more of today's Steam, rather than yesteryear as unfortunately I wasn't around!! I have had my share of firing trips on Bulleids though being a 3rd man down at the Midhants Railway! And what a fantastic line it is too!! I have yet to visit Swanage and get some fantastic shots of SLL's fleet. Of course Nick will have 2nd pickings (Sorry Nick) as firstly they will go on my fotopic site. My photos too are Copyrighted. The only problem I would have is someone used them on their site and said they were their own....
As for asking and borrowing photos we all ask each other from time to time to use for prosperity as Nick did with my Bulleid sound that I use on the Forum front page in MP3 format.

I'd be interested to know which film this is? There are many on Youtube. More importantly the still shots of Nine Elms.

I'm glad you like them. I lived right next to the main line at Woking, and could see the trains without even getting out of bed!

My only regret is that I didn't take more (and better) photos. But we must look to the future; preserve the best of the past (locos and photos) and make sure they are available for others, and remember to enjoy it all too!

Happy New Year,

Nick

All agreed. I had to make a five minute walk down the road, but plenty of other kids
provided feedback on what had come into Pompey or what was 'on shed' at Fratton.
Cheers

If memory serves me correctly, I believe it was Jeremy Hosking who bought and funded restoration of 34046 Braunton. He had to part with in excess of £750,000!!

If I've got the wrong locomotive, I'm sure someone will correct me quickly enough!

A Happy and Healthy New Year to all.

This is a good way to spend New Years Day: http://www.youtube.com/user/SouthernRailwayFilms

Richard Green http://www.locos-in-profile.co.uk/ has also made an excellent re-working of the Bulleid Society website: http://www.bulleidsociety.org/

I know a six figure sum was spent on getting 34046 to full working order. 34046 was sold to Jeremy Hosking in 1996. Does anyone know what parts from the other 13 other Loco's (Bulleids I would imagine) that are sitting on 34046?

A Happy New Year to you're good-self too!!

From 35017: I am only too aware that restoring locos isn't cheap. However 'Braunton' was only a fraction of the cost of Tornado, which is only a fraction of the projected cost of 5AT - hence the issue, can you find ways to do worthwhile innovations on something that already exists at less inordinate cost? By the way, when is it envisaged that 35005 will move again under its own power? It seemed quite a fixture at one time. I was driving along the M25 at Line and it came over the top -more interesting than looking at lorries!
