Although we want to capture what the railway was like in the early nineties, all aspects portrayed, undoubtedly the motive power which was a real draw for us. The variety at the time was wonderful.
Though even now you can go and see older traction working, class 56s with Colas, class 20s and 37s with DRS and a whole host of things with the West Coast Railway Co. it somehow isn’t the same as it once was. Did we even realise how lucky we were with the variety we had?
The railway wasn’t perfect, not by a long shot – wages were low and the industry run down in many areas but this had its own charms. But the sight and sound of some of the older traction created memories which will never fade.
This section will allow you to see the fleet as it develops.
