Colonel Stephens

Many railway enthusiasts will know of ‘The Colonel’, as he was called. Born in 1868, he was a widely read and educated railway engineer of the late Victorian era.

Back in Harness!

If anyone had told me back in 1967 that 40 years later I would still be involved with steam locomotives, I would have thought them ‘off their heads’.

‘Lord Nelson’ in preservation

The locomotive ‘Lord Nelson’, Southern Railway No.850, built at Eastleigh Loco Works in 1926, was selected for preservation by the British Transport Commission when withdrawn in 1962. ‘Lord Nelson’ was stored at Fratton, Stratford and the Pullman Car works at Brighton. In 1975 she (all steam locos are feminine – I wonder why! Michael Walshaw) was moved to York for display at the newly established National Railway Museum. Soon afterwards, ‘Lord Nelson’ was loaned to ‘Steamtown’ at Carnforth for restoration for mainline operation.

H.C. Baker.

Purbeck Railway Circle

On Friday 16 November Michael Baker will present a slide show entitled ‘Across the USA from New York to San Francisco’.   Michael had always promised himself that he would make that most romantic of journeys - for a fan of 1930/40s Hollywood anyhow - across the USA, which is what he did when he retired - sort of - from teaching. He will relate his journey, starting in New York, on to Philadelphia, a jump to Chicago, and then to California – by diesel, electric, steam plus the odd tram, trolleybus and horse. We meet in the Catholic Church Hall, Rempstone Road, Swanage, at 7.00 for 7.30 pm. All welcome.
