Alternative Photographs (18)

Another five pics from five contributors comprise today's post 19th July 2011.  As I am receiving many pics at the moment please be patient if your pic hasn't appeared yet, it is in the 'bank'.


Pic number one is of a SR 'Lord Nelson' class 4-6-0 locomotive designed by Richard Maunsell in 1926. It is the prototype, No.850 Lord Nelson, and Alan's shot was taken on the Gloucester Warwickshire Railway on 8th June 2008.





The second shot is from Jeff Nicholls. It is rather special as Jeff is actually driving the locomotive in Poland. He took the picture from the cab of OL49-7 at Lubon on 10th June 2009 whilst waiting for the distant unit to clear.




The Peak Rail Gala of 14th June 2011 was the location for the third shot, by John Smith. 0-6-0 saddle tank No.68013 is pictured arriving at Darley Dale with a short freight train.




The fourth pic is from Bevan Price. It is a photograph of a Metropolitan Line service at Barbican taken on 2nd July 2011.






The final shot is another example of the well photographed steam locomotive, GWR 'Castle' class 4-6-0, No. 5043, Earl of Mount Edgcumbe. In Barry Rigby's shot the creation of Charles Collett is seen passing under what was known locally as 'the four bridges'. The location is where Patricroft MPD used to be. The bridge in the shot is to be replaced by a new one following the future electrification of the line. The pic is dated 16th April 2011.
