Bluebell Railway
#1
Some pictures I took while on a visit to the Bluebell Railway, maybe around 1966/67 - I'm not exactly sure. The camera was probably a Kodak Instamatic and these photos were about as good as it got with me operating it.

London Brighton & South Coast Railway Class A1 Stroudley 'Terrier' 0-6-0T, No.55 "Stepney".

I think they are great pictures for the time Dr Chris. Are they scanned actual photos? Sign of the times for sure...were those short shorts and over the calf socks part of the uniform of the UK Boy Scouts?

That 4-4-2T is an especially interesting locomotive. I’m not familiar with a radial tank engine. The side tanks seem a bit small relative to the overall size of the engine.

Now I’ve gotta do some research.... Darn it!

EDIT: Yep, I already had to avoid the stuff about radial aircraft engines used in tanks! Big Grin LOL

Yes they are scanned actual photos. Yes, they were part of our uniforms, though we seem to have been taking a fairly relaxed attitude towards our appearance.

I had no idea you were in the Scouts, though I do know you've been on several well known UK heritage railways. These photos were indeed very well taken for a 14/15 year old in the mid-late '60s. The scanning quality is so good it makes them look like they're much more recent. Are there any particular experiences you or the others recall from your time there? Please tell us about your memories from it.
