Preserved LocomotivesHOMEPAGE for all of Phil and Molly's PicsArchive British railways Steam Photographs - mainly from the late 1960's

Although the picture quality isn't that good, (awful at times!), they do represent happy summers as a child and teenage railway enthusiast in the 1950's and 1960's. I'm sure many other people of 'certain generations' will also feel a strong sense of nostalgia for a lost age of steam locomotive hauled freight and passenger trains. The sad thing is that, apart from the Stanier Black Five 45110 and two ex BR Eastern Region locomotives 61572 and 65462, non of the pictured locomotives survived the scrapyard and cutting up after being withdrawn from service. Many were photographed in the last year/month of their working life! Some shed codes are quoted and dates of manufacture and withdrawn from service prior to being scrapped (broken up!).

Email Docs PicsThis web page is the 1st draft of the coloured photographic images of steam locomotives in the 1960s, as I'm still working on the images! Pictures coloured photographs of staem trains 1. to 25. are ex Kodachrome 35mm colour slides and 26. to 32. ex Agfa 35mm colour slides. The dates quoted for the photographs maybe 1 month later than the actual date they were taken? I'm just quoting the month and year on the slides.
