photoblog image 3672 at Grosmont

3672 at Grosmont

This photograph was taken at the North Yorks.Moors Railway a good few years ago, hence I can't remember any details of the camera I used, from outside the locoshed and workshop at the far end of the foot tunnel leading away from the main station.

Number 3672 is an ex War Department 2-10-0 which was designed by Riddles. This one has been named Dame Vera Lynn and is in store at Grosmont awaiting a heavy overhaul.

Number 69023 in the background is a J72 tank locomotive, originally built for the North Eastern Railway from a design by T.Wordsell. This has been named Joem and is currently undergoing an overhaul.

Ever since our ride to the Grand Canyon a week ago, Brian, trains have really been on my mind. Kinda hard to forget them!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, you could have worse things on your mind I suppose smile
A real contrast here Brian: I well remember these WD 2-10-0s in service
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, the afficianados used to call then "dub-dees" I believe.
A beautiful perspective on these two engines Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richardm almost a little and large comparison between the two.
I remember steam trains, Brian, but they were all the same to me.
Brian Walbey: Obviously you must have led a sheletered childhood Chad, thanks for your comment :-D

Oodles of atmosphere here, Brian. I'm sure that once the overhauls are completed, they will go on giving sterling service. I like the NYMR; it actually goes from somewhere to somewhere else!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan I like this railway but it is quite a long time since I went there, I believe they run right through to Whitby now as well.
No 600 Gordon is in the engine house at Highley on the SVR. It used to run but boiler failure has put her out of action.

Brian Walbey: I remember seeing Gordon at the SVR years ago Bill, I haven't been there for a long time. Thanks for your comment.

Lovely image, what an honour to have a train named after you smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I'm actually surprised they haven't named the white cliffs of Dover after Vera Lynn as well smile

Look at that power!
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Ellie. They had to be very powerful engines as they were built to haul very heavy freight trains around during World War II.
