Pretty much everyone at C&SC is a fan of steam, but only one of us is "lucky" enough to have a mainline at the end of the garden, literally. Hence. armed with a handy timetable from http://www.uksteam.info/tours/ I can often snap the good stuff as it trundles past.

Here's one from the other day

This is the only train near our house at the moment.

My dad would be able to tell you instantly what class of loco that is, seeing as he started as a fireman on the GWR – and "used to shift 9 tons of coal a day!". Nice photo

That looks to me like a 'Princess Elizabeth' Class of loco.

Although NOT a trainspotter, my Grandfather worked for SR all his working life, and between the late 40s and 1960 drove the "Golden Arrow" from Stewarts Lane Depot, Nine Elms to the Channel port(s).
