No.43106 aka the “Flying Pig”, in lovely late autumn light, wends her way to the summit of Eardington Bank on the Severn Valley Railway. The freshly repainted coach really does put the other three to shame – very ‘last days of steam’ on BR. And these are the very last days of Steam Age Daydreams so don’t forget to check out the archive section, there are also lots of photos from pre-BR, even pre-Grouping right through to the present day. In the Trains for thought drop down there are photos and musings on the nature of life the universe and everything – from Aristotle to ‘arry Hill!
I know from my stats that these blogs have been viewed in over 130 countries and that over a ten day period, last month, every single one of them was seen by someone, or some group, in South Korea, which was odd. I will still be taking photographs and my portfolio can be seen here: https://www.picfair.com/users/dropgrate
I will still be continuing to write; the last three parts of “In Memory”, my footplate memoire, will be appearing in 2019, with Part III planned for February and Parts IV and V at roughly 2 or 3 month intervals. Part II is available now, in print or as an ebook, at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Memory-Part-II-David-Wilson/dp/1731324022/
The book about my lifetime of involvement with matters railway is still available on Amazon – Below, is the link to that work. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gricing-Real-story-Railway-Children/dp/1514885751
