Railway Articles

I’ve just added some new scans of my slides dating from 1983 to the Picture Gallery. 

The pictures were taken at Clapham Junction on 3 August 1983 – and show a time of rapid change.

Corsica - Chemins de Fer de Corse

The Chemin de Fer de la Corse (CFC) is a fascinating metre gauge rail network serving the French island of Corsica.

At the time of my visits in the 1980s it was a delightful combination of beautiful scenery and quaint rolling stock.

In the mid-1980s there were still some interesting old autorails to be found in use in Corsica.  One such example is Billard Autorail Type A80D 2 no 503 dating from 1940.

Chemins de Fer de Corse - the "Sous-Marin"

Locotracteur no. T114 of the CFC (Chemins de Fer de Corse) was built in the works at Bastia in 1955 from secondhand parts.

The locotracteur was known as the "Sous-Marin" on account of the round windows.  Quite why is a mystery because submarines don't have round windows!

The GCR And A Kingmoor Black 5

After a 15 month gap, I'm back at Loughborough for a photo charter.  The loco?  A Black 5 - and not just any Black 5 - a Kingmoor Black Five. 

In 1967 as a twelve year old I looked down in awe from Etterby Bridge at the lines of workstained locomotives lined up outside Kingmoor shed.  Black 5s, 8Fs, Britannas and 9Fs dominated. 

We spent a whole afternoon wandering around the shed gathering numbers.  Kingmoor closed to steam some months later at the end of 1967.  It left a memory with me that's remained ever since.

My trip to the UK has brought me to Scarborough. 

I've an hour to spare so I've been seeking out some of the last operational semaphore signals on the ‘Big Railway’.

Gricing Quickie Near York

Living in Cyprus I do miss a spot of casual gricing. 

So on a visit to the UK as I drove over the East Coast Main Line just north of York at the amazingly named Nether Poppleton I had to stop and have a look. 

The snow was an added bonus!

Xingyang Brickworks Railway

The Xingyang Brickworks Railway is 15 km west of Zhengzhou in Henan Province in China.

The line is 762mm gauge, approximately 5km long and is worked by two C2 0-8-0 steam locos.

Yinghao Coal Mine Railway

The Yinghao Coal Mine Railway in China was built in 1962.

To a gauge of 762mm, it ran 9.8 km between the loco shed in Yinghao Meikuang through Xiangyang Chezhan to Yinghao.

There was a junction at Xiangyang Chezhan where the line drops down to the mine and coal loading facilities at Liangjiawajing.

Jiayang Coal Mine Railway, Shibanxi

Set in an almost tropical part of China, the Jiayang Coal Railway is well worth a visit.

The line climbs steeply to the 'half-way' point at Mifengyan, where the trains reverse before continuing the climb to Huangcunjin.
