Potpourri #1057

Some pictures today….

Railway posters ain’t what they used to be…..

But other advertising was a little more basic….


An Albion Nimbus outside Southampton Central station….


Staying with the station theme….

Redhill with blue-grey EMUs but semaphore signals…


Seaton Junction before rebuilding and widening….

Farnham in 1910….


Hope I’m OK to share this photo by Derek Buckett – it’s such a wonderful shot of Southern electric loco 20003 at East Croydon.


Moving on to the prototype for everything department.  A Merchant Navy class at Clapham Junction hauling a milk train – probably for Vauxhall, not Morden.  This was a common running-in turn for ex-works locos, so a wide range of classes could be seen.

Buses on bridges have become a modelling cliche.  But how about a tram engine on a bridge?


A very modellable scene from Australia….
