Thank you for posting the photos - very useful.
Given that the backs of the bogie wheels have rubbed on the mainframes, what hope have we of getting a scale model to run round normal curves.
In model form the frames don't bend to get round corners either - and those frame strikes have been there a very long time...
The M7 shows the same frame strikes.
Great photos. Most of the time I lived in Langton she was or seemed to be out and about, it feit the same with the M7 too. Have you been signalman long at Swanage?
Very useful. The photos of the bogie show just how simple these older locomotives are/were.
Ta muchley for the appreciation - I'll get around to the requests as the opportunity arises.
Something over twenty-five years Peter. I started training when we didn't have signals!
Were you a volunteer? If so we must have met somewhere along the way ...
No I was not a volunteer, at the time I was a shopfitter so worked stupid hours and a single parent time was sort of short. I still like to pop down when I am in the country.
The difference is the 1:1 version doesn't short when the wheels strike the frame
Another haul, further to follow.
Sorry, as I said, these are just snaps, I am definitely not a photographer!
And some more.
Any more while the loco is still accessible?
Lovely set of photos. Many thanks.
Thanks for posting the shots of 30120 at Swanage - great detail. I was particularly interested in this having enjoyed a cab ride on 120 while she was at the Battlefield Line in December 2016. This shot shows departure from Shackerstone as the sun breaks through the mist on the morning of 30/12/2016.
Give me a head's up when you are next in the neighborhood - I feel a pint (or two) and a natter coming on!
