On my way back from Peterborough today I popped into the Nene Valley Railway to see what was going on - not a lot really. I was a little disappointed with what I did see. There was only one loco in operation, a little Barclay saddle tank engine, which is fine for a cold wet day, however it was pulling a rake of French, I think, coaches - which looked a little odd. Also there were more continental locos around than British. A Polish tank engine was in steam too. Here are some views:

I also took a few general shots around the yard and shed. There was so much packed in that it was difficult to get good clear pictures. I liked the turntable and the steam crane, good example of oily weathering:







There were a large number of diesels in various states of repair:

Nice pictures Bob


Always good to look at prototype photos to give you ideas.

the picture with the chain and pulleys is that a drive system for the semaphore signals?

I think they are for signals, but for the sets at the other end of the platform (they can be just seen in the last photo of my second set of pictures), hence the need to cross under the line. The wires behind the pulleys control the bracket signal seen in the preceding shots.

Lovely and informative pictures, Bob. The yard of diesels in various states of repair is a sad picture, but who knows... :) All it will take is money, enthusiasm, motivation and, er ... more money :D

That IM46 is a handsome shunter. I hope they get it up and running.

These are very good and helpful photos, Bob.

I like that green shunter too. Is it British, does anyone know? I'd like to have a model of it.
Good weathering on the Esso tanker as well.

I think the diesel is British and, unless I am mistaken, it is a class 14. According to Phill's excellent link to the history of UK diesels it was introduced in 1964 and retired in 1969 - clearly not a great success!

Some good photos, Novice.
Details that can be used for modelling are always welcome, so your trip wasn't in vain :!:

Brilliant photos Novice. I frequently drove over the line on the A1 and there always seemed to be loads of "stuff" there but not much actually going on.

Super "detail" shots - always very, very useful to see.
