That's the one.  December 4th.  It was a Wednesday in evening peak traffic and it was foggy.  The 4.56 left Cannon street three quarters of an hour late, headed by 34066 'Spitfire' and ploughed into the back of a stationary electric train.  Spifire was subsequently repaired and returned to service.
With kind regards
Laurence

That's interesting information @crewearpley40 , I have put crew in my Union Mills 3f,which I detailed adding a reverse lever, hope I put them the right way round I could end up with egg on my face. The crew I have used so far is from the little sets that Graham Farish do, a touch expensive but they are already painted and they do different sets with the crews in varying positions. I have put crew in 3 steam locos and my Deltic, if they are in the correct positions is anybody's guess.

Chris
Your '3F' is a Midland locomotive.  I'd put the driver on the right.
If you post, or PM me, what locomotives have put crew in, I'll try to help.

Anyone know where there's a comprehensive list of steam locos drive sides? I'd hate to put the driver on the wrong side :dunce:
You know, Mick, that's something I've never seen!  As with Chris, please feel free to ask and I'll try to help.  Some are easy, such as GWR or the BR Standards.  Others depend on the owning company but even then there are confounders, such as the G&SWR which switched from right to left when Peter Drummond took over from James Manson.  The Stirling tradition was right-hand, the Drummond one was left-hand.  And, as for the '4F' class - right or left according to whether a Midland or an LMS one!

Best wishes.

Presumably left, John?

Not at all, Mick. It became an interesting discussion!

Cheeky, George! So I won't tell you how many shots make up this picture, but it was taken with the new
lens.

Another nice picture Roger, even if it is a load of them rolled into one, (I understand that is what 'stacking' is). One thing - your drainpipes - are they shop bought or home made?

Hi again Roger, here is a pic showing the selection of loco staff I have used, like I said a bit expensive but nicely painted.

Yes indeed, Roger.

The BR Standards were all left-hand drive.

Just like with upper-quadrant semaphore signals, three of the 'Big Four' got round to settling on left-hand drive.  The other company remained different, of course, in both respects.

Many thanks for another absolutely splendid train-less photograph.

I hope you are keeping a lot better.

All best wishes.

John

Home made. I usually make them from wire but have sometimes used plastic rod. I've never tried to represent the brackets that hold the real thing to the wall - I think they're too small to make them scale size. So the pipes are just glued straight onto the walls.

Thanks John, and yes, I am feeling quite a bit better. I'm even trying to make another building but gardening keeps getting in the way!

Thanks Chris. I was looking at the GF sets earlier this evening and I wondered if all the figures are in useful poses. But the advantage of having them already painted does make them an attractive option.

Another superb photo.; many thanks. I really like the contrast between the realistically weathered WD and the ex-works BR Standard 5MT.
