Vol 19: Mainline 2007, Part 2: GW, BR & SR Locomotives

There’s plenty of variety in this volume, with 7 GW locos, 2 BR Standards and 2 Southern locos. Highlights include Bradley Manor’s last mainline trips, 6024 and 5051 double-heading, fantastic glints from 9466 and 35028, Duke of Gloucester setting new standards on the South Devon Banks, and Sir Lamiel making a night departure from Salisbury. My personal favourite? Clan Line climbing Parkstone Bank, from a standing start at Poole, pulling 13 carriages and an EWS diesel, then roaring through Basingstoke, whistle open, really takes some beating!
