Strathspey Railway

Strathspey Engine shed - August 2010

Approaching the Shed

In recent years, I have made a number of visits to The Strathspey Railway armed with trusty Camera. A request in another topic has prompted me to share some of the images. This first one is to test the waters, and prove the method of posting. Hopefully this process will work ok, and it will be possible to share a few more. The files are too large when fresh from the camera, so advice from Davey T to use Irvan to resize images at 700 wide has been followed.

The ambiance was of a tidy workplace, which matches my own experience as an engineering apprentice at ICI in the early 60s

Well worth showing us, Les.

Of course the modellers over the pond would delight in modelling such workshops, but I don't think I've ever seen such internal detail here in the UK.

Someone prove me wrong . . . .
