Please feel free to make new threads, and posts in here. Ranging, from Feltham, Reading (Southern). Weymouth, Dorchester, Yeovil, and Exmouth Jnct. If there are enough threads, and posts to one or more particular locoshed. Then we will reconsider adding to the others.

If anyone feels that any other shed needs to be added - Please let me know. I will certainly consider it as long as it is going to be discussed. I don't want to make the forum too long in the window...
As discussed elsewhere, I think sub sheds need to remain in being discussed under sheds already on the forum.
I think Exmouth Jct would be a good one to kick off seeing as laid fantastic locos (Bulleids) down to the Ilfracombe branch!
If anyone would like me to add thios, then please let me know..

Thanks

Andy

Locomotive biographies of engines whose plates are held by the RAF Museum, and originally allocated to 73G when new

Post by 34070 Manston on Sat Jun 20, 2009 2:25 am

I have just found the following on the R.A.F. Museum website and thought that it may be of interest:-

229 Squadron

Built May 1947; New to Ramsgate shed. Unrebuilt; Renumbered 34063 January 1949. Withdrawn from Salisbury shed 15th August 1965, stored there until November 1965, then at Eastleigh works until April 1966. Final mileage 736,984. Scrapped by Birds at Bridgend May 1966 as one of the last engines scrapped there.

Fighter Command
21C164/34064


The 1000th locomotive built at Brighton locomotive works since 1852, new to traffic 14th July 1947. After trials, fitted with first of the modified 'V' wedge shaped cabs, with two side windows (three became standard later). New to Ramsgate shed.

Unrebuilt; fitted with Giesl oblong Ejector and chimney April 1962, but this had no particular effect on the Bulleid's already excellent steaming abilities. Standby engine for Sir Winston Churchill's funeral train in January 1965; held in steam at Staines, but not needed. Withdrawn from Salisbury shed 22nd May 1966, stored in Basingstoke yard September 1966 and scrapped by Birds at Bridgend November 1966. Final mileage 759,666.

Temporarily transferred to Stratford shed on the Eastern Region in May 1951 to supplement resident 'B1s' on secondary duties and proved valuable when the new standard design 'Britannia' pacifics had to be withdrawn from service on the Great Eastern Lines out of Liverpool Street for modification, returning to the Southern by May 1952. Withdrawn from 83D Exmouth Junction shed April 1964 as the Western Region began dieselisation of the main line to Exeter; stored at Eastleigh Works from withdrawal until November 1964 and despatched to Birds, Llanelly that month, where it lingered until early 1965.

Does anyone know the slightly out of date information regarding 249 Squadron? I wish these webmasters would update the information from time to time... study

Norwood Junction 75C

Post by truckersteve on Wed Apr 25, 2012 5:21 am

When I was very, very little (I was born in 1950) we lived near Norwood Junction and my Mum used to push me in my pushchair up to the top of the footpath which lead down to the M.P.D. to watch the "chuff-chuffs".

Another treat was to go to South Norwood Recreation Ground and watch the tank engines shunting in the coal yard the other side of the railings. I learnt the principles of Newton's laws and the relationship between the speed of light and the speed of sound at about the age of 5.

There is a clip on YouTube about it, Just search "Steam Days at Norwood Junction".
