Many thanks. Somehow, black and white photos seem to represent the days of steam much more appropriately than colour!

Here's anther gloriously evocative photo, courtesy Mick Nicholson, of a J39 held by signals in Hessle Station on the up slow line. This was the place where we spent our Saturdays and many school holiday days just watching the trains and there were so many, from so many different places.

This country station was and still is some four or five miles from Hull's centre, situated on the main line to Selby, Doncaster and all points beyond. Once it was a four track main line, with semaphore signalling, gas lighting and the assortment of buildings which North Eastern stations exhibited. A working goods yard and station staff all contributed to that timeless feel of this place.

Now, of course, the layout is rationalised to two track. The goods yard, semaphore signals and signal box are gone and the station is unmanned and sadly neglected, though still operational.

Anyway, a photo of a wet winter's day in a different time.

Cheers

Mike

Kit's arrived!

Just need to sort out HL hornblocks, Ultrascales and GS sprung buffers for it.
That would be an ecumenical matter.
