GCR - Loughborough 27-4-13 #7

A little collage of images taken near the main locomotive workshop at Loughborough Central. There is always lots of bits and pieces like this standing about, and which make quite interesting photographs.

I agree, they do make interesting photos - and I like the way you've done the collage!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, there are other things to photograph as well as the trains at these heritage railway.

Aha - here we have two classes of locomotive I was very familiar with. The Modified Halls were efficient well put together machines on the GW whilst the 8Fs, quite a lot of them built in wartime at Swindon, Doncaster or Eastleigh, were the latter day mainstay of freight on the S&D right up to the last day.
Brian Walbey: Once again, coming from East Anglia, both classes were ones I wasn't that familiar with during my youth, I've made up for it since.
You are quite right Brian and have demonstrated the fact very well
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I should do more shots like this when I visit the GCR.

I love the dilapidated railway wagon doors.
Brian Walbey: I hope they don't keep any valuables in that wagon, it doesn't look very secure.
Nice....
Brian Walbey: Thanks.
Good backdrop for the bits and bobs Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks janet, it makes a change to a straight forward train shot.
This door is not in use anymore I presume Brian! Very nice collage indeed.
Brian Walbey: It is the worn out door on the body of an old wagon standing to one side.

A fine presentation which just shows the amount I of restoration needed to keep our history alive. I like the brazier.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Alan, although I think this wagon body has seen better days and is used for storage.
great History as always Brian. Loving this series
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much.
Love those doors - I'd like to see one without the two small images - should be stunning!
Brian Walbey: I wasn't really sure if the doors on their own were interesting enough hence the two small ones.
