GCR 6th.October, 2012 7/7

On Tuesday I showed you the ex LMS 0-6-0 Fowler Class 3F No.47406 ‘Jinty’ and here it is again running tender first on its way south with the same rake of wagons as before on a demonstration local freight service. Photograph taken during the Great Central Railway Autumn Gala at Quorn.

It is showing its backside to us Brian... good shot....petersmile
Brian Walbey: That's one name for it Peter, glance in to see what Ray's F-I-L would have called it, I'm far too polite to repeat it!!

Is it still called "tender first" when it ain't got a tender, Brian.

My first father-in-law called this "arsewise foremost" which I always regarded as a lovely phrase.
Brian Walbey: Yes tender first ray although my Dad was known to come out with such expressions as your alternative, bless him.
this one I like better than yesterdays
Brian Walbey: I guess one can see a bit more detail than yesterdays.

The charm of the budget and utility end of the railway trucks and engine spectrum
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Richard, I guess you and I wouldn't have seen these type of engines where we come from very often, if at all.
nice mellow colours to end the series Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill, good old British railways colours.

Just like it was in the old days Brian. When I was on the railway in the mid 60s these fitted vans were everywhere
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris, and as for the vans, when I worked in the office at Kings Cross Freight Terminal in the 1960's there were hundreds of these box vans all over the place every day, plus the stinky old fish vans fresh in from Grimsby!!

This all looks so workmanlike and efficient, Brian, and I bet it was
Brian Walbey: Quite sturdy and powerful little engines I believe Lisl.
Another fine shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Another wonderful shot Brian. I enjoyed your series!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
I take the chance of this wonderful image to wish a very Happy Christmas Brian.-smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan and the same wishes go from me to you and your family.
Good shot, Brian. I can hear it hissing and rattling.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme, I'm always pleased to see this little engine running about.

The old brake vans are a rare sight now. The only one I've ever seen in recent years on the public railways sits at the back of the short train with the nuclear reactive waste heading back to Sellafield. I like the reflection on the loco's tank here and the fine station.
Brian Walbey: Yes brake vans are things of the past now Alan. All of the stations on the GCR have been restored to 40's and 50's style in general.
