Castle' Class 4-6-0 locomotive, No.4094 Featured Print

Castle' Class 4-6-0 locomotive, No.4094

Castle' Class 4-6-0 locomotive, No.4094 'Dynevor Castle', hauling the Ocean Liner Express from Plymouth Millbay to Paddington. The three leading vehicles are 70ft 'Ocean Mails' storage vans, although they appear to have been demoted as there is no legend on the lower panels, and they are probably conveying passengers' luggage. This view was taken at Sonning Cutting, Maurice Early's favorite location. The bridge in the distance carries the A4.

Patrolling the permanent way, Manningtree, Essex, May 1948

A ganger patrolling the permanent way, Manningtree, Essex, May 1948. Maintanence of the permanent way was essential for the safe running of the railway. The ganger checks the sleepers, the fastenings of the chairs holding the rails, the tightness of fishplates and the size of the gap between the rails. He carries a hammer for knocking in loose keys securing the rails in their chairs. Photographer Cyril Herbert was one of the few enthusiasts who produced studies of railwaymen. Herbert worked on the railway himself and took this photograph while on duty.

Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, c 1927

Passengers waiting for a train, at Eskdale Green station on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, by HGW Household, about 1927. The R & E R opened in 1875 between Dalegarth and Ravenglass. It was used for the transportation of iron ore, as well as for carrying passengers. The line closed in 1913 when the iron mine closed, due to a flood. The line later re-opened on a 15 gauge, again to carry passengers and ores. It has been preserved as miniature railway.
