Odds and ends….

A few bits and pieces as a change from exhibition reports (although people seem to like pictures from an exhibition more than me wittering on…..)  All are from that wonderful time waster YouTube….

First a car journey up the A20 and A23 in 1964.  Many great modelling details here – old cars and buses, empty roads and unredeveloped buildings.  For local inhabitants note the section from 1:27 onwards, that passes through Redhill, Merstham, Hooley, Coulsdon (as in the picture below) and up past the power station at Waddon (now Ikea) and into Thornton Heath.  And I was just taking the 11-plus….

Next, London termini in colour in the 1950’s and 1960’s.  Some nice steam here, and note the Battle of Britain class slipping like mad as it pulls out of Waterloo.

A 1944 documentary of Waterloo, including some Southern steam.

Southern EMU’s 1962-1968 – a bit fuzzy, but some great shots of the Brighton Belle, including passing though the Redhill Quarry Line.

And finally a short snippet of Clapham Junction in the 1950’s including EMU’s and steam – and a lovely T9 4-4-0 at the end of the film.  Enjoy!
