34067 ‘Tangmere’ at speed through Chelmsford station. The Cathedrals Express.

This is the ‘Southern Region West Country Class and Battle of Britain Class steam locomotive, 34067 ‘Tangmere’ at full steam heading north through Chelmsford Railway Station (UK) on December 8th 2009 with the Cathedrals Express Carol Concert Special to Ely Cambridgeshire for an afternoon carol concert in the Cathedral there. Designed by Oliver Bulleid, 34067 entered service in September 1947 and was withdrawn in November 1963. Out of a batch of 110 locomotives 20 still exist in preservation but 34067 is the only one certified for mainline metals use. Tangmere was a late replacement for A4 60019 ‘Bittern’ on this railtour as that locomotive has route availability issues on the line between Ipswich and Bury St. Edmunds. This is a first for me.. never seen Tangmere before.

Blandford Forum Railway Station 1960’s Part 2

The final days of the Railway Blandford in Dorset UK Then and Now Archive film of Shllingston to Blandford forum steam railway in the 1960’sContinued from Blandford Forum through charlton Marshal to Spetisbury and Baileygate the S&D railway from operations in the 1960’s to 20 years later in the early 1980’s. The remains of the track bed and some cuttings I filmed then have now gone leaving only one arch as evidence of the grand old days of steam railways. I always thought as a child in the 1960’s this line would be here forever with all that work to construct, it took around 2 years and built to last a thousand years, only to last little more than a life time. Dr Beeching known to be the axeman of the railway branch lines. I remember at the time late 1950’s there were many strikes and transporting freight and commuting by road became more popular and convenient which I would say led to the branch lines demise. The branch lines could not support themselves financially. In the video you will see the construction of the new Blandford By-Pass from brewery arch. These days with the ever rising cost of road transport Could the branch lines make a come back I sure do hope so. In the 1800’s land owners fought against the railways now we’re fighting to get them back.
