Retired railwaymen and steam fans gathered on Farnham Road bridge on Sunday morning, July 9for the unveiling of a plaque by Richard Greenwood MBE to commemorate Guildford engine shed which closed exactly 50 years ago.
Further details can be found on page Putting this page together has rekindled a lot of old memories of Nine Elms, Eastleigh and Guildford depots - all of which I worked at during my time on the footplate, and every one of which went into gradual decline towards the end of steam days.
So too did the locomotives that graced these depots - once-proud gleaming machines facing their final years in a deplorable state of disrepair due to neglect.
In fact the headlong rush to abandon steam was an absolute travesty as some of the new BR Standard Class locomotives were regarded as no longer fit for purpose and scrapped after serving less than 10 years in service - a massive lack of forethought Apart from the incoming and outgoing lines there are ten roads within the shed and a further fifteen outside.
Sadly, only a few locomotives are shown here but you can imagine the hustle and bustle during the shed's heyday in the s. Battersea Power Station with its four corner chimneys in brick cathedral style dominates the skyline; it is the largest brick built building in Europe.
The sign was removed from the wall surrounding the depot when it was being demolished to make way for the new Covent Garden Market in the early s. Beyond it can be seen Battersea Power Station with chimneys belching smoke and steam.
Above-Below From main line to country branch line services Locomotives were often booked to run coupled together to and from Waterloo to ease traffic congestion.
Waiting for its pathway, S15 Class stands at the signal on platform 2 with a stone train from Woking heading for the same destination and then on to either Three Bridges or Tonbridge. The locomotive's cabside was given a representation of the medal and its ribbon, which was displayed until the engine was withdrawn from service and scrapped in the late s.
Another locomotive presented with a cabside crest was 'Tangmere'. The loco was built in September at Brighton works as No 21C This was the continental numbering system as preferred by Oliver Bullied.
Following the nationalisation of Britain's railways Tangmere was renumbered in July It was not until that the 'Tangmere' shield was added beneath the cab number. In March of that year Tangmere was returned to main line running and is regularly employed hauling steam specials, including the 'Scarborough Spa Express' seen here on the climb to Diggle on the outward leg to the Yorkshire coast.
A pair of type 3 Crompton Diesel-Electric locomotives stand nearby - two of the steam locomotive's fate are sealed - is preserved and can be seen working on the Bluebell Railway. Introduced in and designed at Brighton, 22 of the 80 members of this class were built in with a double chimney including Below I can think of numerous good points about the new BR Standard Class locomotives, especially from a fireman's point of view; the relative ease regarding disposal duties is one of them.
When operating a rocking grate it allowed the accumulative deposits of clinker and ash to fall straight into the ash pit; this was much easier than the laborious task of dragging the clinker and ash out through the firehole door using a clinker shovel.
Most BR Standard Class locomotives also had self cleaning smokeboxes, as indicated by an 'SC' plate beneath the shed number plate. Another creature comfort for the fireman and driver was their comfortable armchair type seats instead of the primitive drop down wooden slat seats found on the Urie and Maunsell locomotives.
Sadly after only a 10 year working life, ended her days in July To facilitate the loading of these trains, a thoroughfare connecting York Road up to concourse level between Platforms 11 and 12 was used for transferring bundles of newspapers hot off the presses in Fleet Street.
A loading supervisor seated himself at a pedestal desk on Platform 11 to direct operations see Cuneo's superb painting above. The supervisor would also issue free newspapers stamped with the word 'Gratis' in red ink on the front page for railway staff.
This was done by holding a paper bundle by the string and bouncing it up and down thereby loosening the string just enough to allow them to roll up two or three papers and slide them out from the top without damaging the bundle. This would then be repeated with other bundles to supply colleagues in different departments or stations.
A team of sorters travelled in a section of the train to sort the newspapers into smaller bundles for delivery to stations and newsagents en route.Need help finding us? Visit our site for directions to and a map of Beaufort, South Carolina.
Having made its mark in the commercial airline sector, the Aneo is now being considered by Airbus for new applications: as a highly-capable and cost-effective platform for ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) duties and as a military transport.
