Last days of steam in the sixties- Photo Archive 2


After seeing Bob Masterman’s great collection of black and white photos of steam in the ’60s, I was inspired to dig out my old album and scan some of the prints that I had taken with my Brownie 127 in my schooldays. They are a bit of a mixed lot and nowhere near the quality of Bob’s, but I hope they may be of interest. Please forgive the 4 photos of “modern traction”- some of the subjects are no longer with us! Please also forgive the quality- I did dabble with home developing in those days, not always as successful as I would have liked. The final photo of 68012 was taken at Middleton Top Shed which was possibly the remotest MPD in Britain, apart from Sheep Pastures which didn’t even have a shed!
