Victoria Station & Great Central

Recommended Posts

As Wembley was nearest to the ex GC main line, it was always favourite for special trains to use that route. 

Always a good chance of seeing some rare locos on them too.

Good photo of some very smart CLW girls, Lizzie.   I hated the berets, too

Maybe Siddah recalls the train trip at Stalag Augustine every year was to 

Chester Zoo.

In my time from the meagre midland!

Nah mate never went to the Zoo with Gussies .............I suspect that in my day you (the school that is)  couldn't ask folk for the money for the trip with voluntary or otherwise contribution. My recollections of steam train jaunts was the weekend ramblers trains from Victoria Stn out to Derbyshire in the mid 60s........ Lovely

Coal train heading over central viaduct.

Its a shame this version is small and does'nt do it justice.

Maybe cliff could source a bigger less blurred photo.the views of canal st.castle, lace mkt, all in one picture.

Shame its all gone.

The two Rogers on here might like and appreciate this snap.

On the York St.side a hydraulic pumping house..not very commonly seen..but quite large inside with a vent turret on top.

All gone by 1968.
