Steam Trains

Post by EarlBathurst on Mon May 20 2013, 21:09

Hi All, As some of you may know my first and main hobby is and always will be steam trains, I've been a volunteer at The Great Western society,Didcot, for 40 years, mainly on the maintainance dept Where i've been in charge for approx 22 years, I've Been lucky enough to have been in charge of Burton Agnes Hall,Nunney Castle, King Edward I,and EarlBathurst, On Main line tours and involved with a total of 16 locos including Britannia , Duke of Gloucester & Evening Star to name a few, so as you can tell my stationary engines are really secondary thing, but they did overlap once when i took into Laughing Cornwall and i picked up a Lister D at St Blazey Depot And it came back on the support coach ! Laughing

Ah Trains! Its said that there are a lot of frustrated Steam enthusiasts in to Stationary Engines!! Like you, my first and foremost interest will always be Steam Railways. Having largely been an armchair enthusiast, I did a short stint at a private railway. Over 18 months managed to Drive, Fire, Guard and be Signalman on open days. Sadly costs of travelling from Southern territory deep into Go When Ready country Laughing knocked it on the head. Did help recently saving an Industrial from the scrapman. That was fun dragging the loco with a porta power winch or when we could borrow it, a timber tractor. 30ft at a time then take up the track and move it to t'other end. Oh and we had to turn through 90 degrees too! Very recently we have been making bits for the new Brighton Atlantic at work and today part of the Westinghouse Pump has arrived for a repair.

Is there a website that gives details of steam loco movements on the mainline? I live close to the Gloucester-Swindon line and I know that it is sometimes used both for railtours and also for moving loco's from one place to another. I usually find out when I see a pic in the paper after it's happened!
Recently B.o.B Tangmere came through on a railtour, only found out after!
