2357 in the goods yard


2357 shunting in the goods yard. Still haven’t painted that coupler and I’ve just noticed, after owning this loco for about ten years, that it’s missing its buffer beam number as per GWR practise. Another little job.

Journey’s End


4365 comes to rest at the end of the main platform with a stopping train from Andover Junction. The express fruit van could be a returning empty awaiting a new consignment of fruit and veg from the Vale of Evesham or it could be carrying new potatoes from Jersey or watercress from Hampshire.

Double-headed 4-4-0s


3714 double-heads with 3399, a pair of 4-4-0s hauling a parcels train and an excuse for me to clear an excess of locomotives from the station.
