Lovely shots. That quadruple header must have been good to see and hear!

Ooooooh :whistle:

Just imagine all the lovely clag if they’d opened the taps :lol:

All the times I’ve been past Hubbert’s Bridge on my way to CGY over the years and never seen a 50 or a 56 :grr:

Thanks for posting :thumbs:

Brings back great old memories of sitting at the end of Reading station as a 12/13 year old watching as the Westerns, Warships, Hymeks and Brush Type 4s went through. We would always ask the driver if we could have a look in the cab and most usually obliged. It was only a year after this that I discovered aircraft.

Nice images in some great light! I also think the Fifties looked best in rail blue- Network South East made them look like a fairground attraction ! Like Graham I too have fond memories of Western Region hydraulics being a west country boy and the final years of steam mainly on the Somerset and Dorset line.
