Potpourri #1016

Not much to report on the railway front.  I was delighted to get my first covid-19 vaccination on Wednesday, but have felt a bit laid back for a couple of days after.  Nothing untoward – well within the normal day-to-day ups and downs, so a definite result.

So here are the usual mix of photographs that caught my eye.

I came across these pictures of a little ‘O’ gauge plank layout.  Interesting modelling…..

Nothing more elegant than a Drummond T9.  Lined black really suited them.

Now this is a ‘Minories’ on steroids.  I think that it’s Cannon Street again….

Dunbridge station in 1962, with an SR DEMU in attendance….

Love this photo from Peter Skellon on Facebook:

Here’s the CLC letter box for Trafford Park shed, which was located to the side of the entrance steps of the footbridge over the Manchester-Liverpool line. The photo was taken on 23 May 1969. I understand the letterbox has survived and is in a postal museum somewhere.

(It’s on the Isle of Wight.)  The rivalry between the LMS and LNER was such, that even when ‘cooperating’ on the Cheshire Lines Committee, they had separate post boxes!

And this is dedicated to our local bus drivers…..
