While not being "good" photo's, they are good photo's of British Railways at work, taken at a moments notice when something good appeared. Please enjoy and feel free to use them in whatever way you wish.

I was just 17 when this was taken at 21A Saltley loco outside no3 roundhouse. The engine is 2-6-0 Mogul 43046. They were good engines, but were very noisey and the cab moved about a lot, the injectors were good too, we used them on the Leicester, Derby and Reddich lines.

I am now adding class details and my experiences of the loco as well as stories to the photo's.. Invercargill New Zealand 15 January 2005
