Locomotion Shildon photographs

Post by Rlangham » Tue Apr 28, 2009 8:27 pm

Had a nice day out (despite the weather!) 'up north' to Shildon to visit Locomotion. Superb collection and museum, last time I visited the plans for the NRM building had only just been announced.

LTC Rolt's Alvis 15/20

J52 looking very nice in GNR livery

North Eastern Railway '901' class 910

Image

NER Snow Plough

Sad looking Austerity outside

Image

The fantastic North Eastern Railway Bo-Bo Number 1 (of 2), later classified as the ES1

Image

NER Breakdown Van sat outside - i'm presuming this is going to be restored in the near future?

Image

nom nom nom

Image

Formerly known as 'Bradyll', it now appears to be 'Nelson', the earliest surviving 0-6-0

Nice Great Northern Railway crane and match truck

great pictures on your web site ,considering the weather outside. but i would like to point out that the electric bo-bo shunters only worked between trafalger yard[manors] and newcastle quayside, they never worked to tyne dock ,just the weekly run to gosforth car sheds for servicing via the ecml .

Thanks for the correction, i'll upload more later tonight or tomorrow. Richard, would you like hi-res copies of the LNER locomotives for the website?

Sure. I might not use them all, but some could be useful. (901 comes to mind).

Shame about the reflection on some of the photos - I had the same problem myself when I tried to photograph the D17 at the NRM.

Hi Richard, PM me whatever address you'd like them sending to and i'll get them off to you.

Interestingly, when I walked by the ES1, the sun showed up the original BR crest and '26500' underneath the NER paintwork!
