Redhill 1990 #2

The second set of pictures mainly show two engineers trains passing through Redhill.  One is headed by two Mainline liveried 73’s, the other an interesting double header with a 33 and a 73.


And to close, some hoppers in the sidings.  All sorts of interesting wagons were dropped here on occasion, to be collected by a train on one of the other lines out of Redhill.

It is sobering to think that I took these photos 30 years ago.  And since then many, if not most, of the buildings in the background have been demolished and rebuilt.  Redhill has become a bit like the child who was asked whether he liked living in Hong Kong.  “Yes, but I wish they’d finish building it.”
