July - Part One

July 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Back from a week in Italy - coast to coast (Rapello to Venice) via train. Even the one day strike by rail workers failed to spoil it.

Took a few pictures which may appear here eventually, but much more to do first.

I am ploughing through the 3000+ slides I picked up just before my holiday, still a long way to go, but I thought you would all like to see at least some of them. So I intend to put up the first 800 or so in the next couple of days.

The slides all seem to be the work of one guy - looks like he was based in the South West as Exeter St Davids features heavily. But he also travelled a fair amount and liked the tram systems and preserved railways in Western Europe.

Unfortunately virtually none of the slides have any information apart from the date of processing stamped by the slide producer, so I have done a bit of research from the actual pictures (but if anyone can help extra information is always welcome)

For now I will upload into the Latest Additions area of the website where there will be 5 new galleries (UK Locos; UK units; Europe (old and new); HST (because I can!!) and O&S)

Not there yet - but soon
