Andym's Web site

If you ever visit Odense (Denmark) visit their Railway Museum - I went on a visit with the Danish Luftmeldekorps (sister organisation modelled on our ROC) about 15 years ago. It was a really interesting day out... and there was lots of beer too...


Here is an example of a Diesel loco used from 1932.


And for the older ones amongst you...


And just for any ex RN Cooks...

Nice Piccies UA ---------------drool drool----!!

Who owns the LOCO is it a Railway museum one?????

Swanage Railway

I'm told by my Grandson that we have to visit this line on a regular basis.

If you are in Dorset its well worth a visit, during the summer they run regular services from a large car park in the village of Norton into Swanage. You end up just a few minutes from the beach, its hoped in time that the line will be upgraded again, to passenger quality. right through to Wareham.

Well the number reads 4365 and the name is ??? Ashton Hall. So it must be a Walt Train!!! 8O

Just for you lot--- and my interest in Steam trains :lol: :lol:

Its one of the 'Manor or Hall Class Loco's 4-6-0 with lightweight axles they were used on lines with weak track or elderly viaducts or bridges. The class is a very popular one for restoration and restorers change Loco names at will!! They were mainly used on the Great Western Railway.

Ok I have cracked the identity of the Loco that shouldn't be, It is definitely a Hall not a Manor, but, the second part of your statement has the answer, the identity was swapped by BR in 1962 and this loco (allegedly scrapped in 1962 was operated as Albert Hall, taken into preservation and, bugger this, :? the stories all here in these links

Gods Wonderful Railway :oops:

I'm sorry. I was just trying to help.

I must admit, that the image of Andy, sitting catatonic in front of his pc, with a small trickle of drool running out of the corner of his mouth, and the lonely sound of a locomotive whistle echoing through the house, is indeed a disturbing one.

What have I done.
I am afraid that our Cousins from over the pond have really quite ugly locomotives.Im not in the least titilated by them.Now if it were the Mallard,or One of the Battle Class.......................................
(bugger!!!! just drooled on the keyboard!)
