photoblog image City of Truro

City of Truro

 

Last Friday at the National Railway Museum's second site, Locomotion, at Shildon, there was an evening's photoshoot with a few of the locomotives stationed there. Here the ex Great Western Railway's 3717, City of Truro, has been positioned next to the old Coal Stacks. These were used to feed coal from wagons on the top of the stacks into the tenders of the locomotives below.

Good shot Les, I seem to recall a comic , back in the day ,that had a series where this engine was the 'hero', something along the lines( no pun intended) of what if the Germans had invaded us, and this was used by the resistance to fight back, or it could be all the drugs I'm taking at the moment having an effectsmile
Les Auld: A strange fantasy indeed Frank, thanks for the comment.
i don't care that the 100mph claim is probably bogus she is such an elegant engine

A fine shot Les, she must have been shaking all over the place whether she done the ton or not.
