Southern Steam – Nine Elms MPD


The principal function of Nine Elms Locomotive Depot was to provide and service locomotives for Waterloo railway station. The original motive power depot was opened on the north side of the main line by the London and Southampton Railway on 21 May 1838. It was closed and demolished in 1865. A second larger shed was built in 1849 on a site later occupied by the Nine Elms Goods Depot. This also closed in 1865. A replacement for these sheds was opened in 1865 and demolished in 1876 to make way for the widening of the main line. A brick semi-roundhouse was built in 1876 and demolished in 1909. A large fifteen road shed was opened in 1885, which later became known as the ‘Old Shed’. It was badly damaged during the Second World War and never fully repaired. This was adjoined by a ten-road shed in 1910 which became known as the ‘New Shed’. The depot was demolished in 1967. The site is now a part of the New Covent Garden Market. These scenes were for the most part recorded in the last few months of steam operation on the South Western main line, 1966/67. 1) An overview of the shed, with BR Standard 5s and a South Eastern & Chatham Railwat designed Maunsell Mogul in steam. 2) A refugee from the Southern Region’s Central Section – ex-London Brighton & South Coast Railway E4 class 0-6-2T No.32487 shunting a refugee from the Eastern Section, Maunsell V (Schools) Class 4-4-0 No.30913 ‘Christ’s Hospital’ 3) Another ‘Schools’ – No.30925 ‘Cheltenham’, one of the three members of this

Southern Pacific Steam When It Was King


These are actual 16mm home movies films, made by the Late Robert G. Sage, SR. of Reading, PA. There were 12 Reels of movies from the late 1940’s through the 50’s. I bought these 16mm Films at a yard sale last year. I had them transferred through a freind of mind. All audio has been added. The pacing scene of the Daylight, sound was provided by pacing scenes from 1996 of the Eire Limed of C&O 614. Other train sound was from other steam locomotives I took audio of through the years. Hope you enjoy. Len.
