Three Bridges CMD #1

The next set of photos come from an open day at Three Bridges CMD.  I had no idea when these were taken, except that they were filed with the other Redhill pictures.  But Google told me that the shunter 09009 was named ‘Three Bridges CED’ on 27/08/1990.  Google maps aerial photos show the electricity pylons that are in the background of some shots.  So that’s when they must have been taken.  I really can’t remember going there, or why I went!!!!  So here’s the locomotive in question, all spruced up and ready to be named.


And some underframe detail.  Bet that didn’t stay white for long!


A general view of the yard.


And pictures of the cranes on display…

And one hard at work….


A luminous tank wagon…


Some modern but battered vans….


And a rather nice, if rather tired, ex-Southern Railway brake van…


Next post will have lots of pictures of fishy wagons – engineers wagons named after sea life (a bit like Scottish National Party leaders) for the uninitiated.
