    Default UK Screenshots for Pre BR Blue. High resolution warning.

    Right my disclaimer and reasons:

    This is for Steam shots from the U.K. because the main UK screenshots thread is becoming overwhelmed by modern 1990's onwards.

    So this thread is for mainly steam era pictures, the newest things that I think should be here is BR green late crest diesels, U.K. narrow gauge and Irish trains are also allowed, providing the loco's are powered by steam.

    I will start this thread off with some pictures and then regularly post in this thread and hopefully others with th same intreasts can post there work here as well, WIP pictures are very welcome.

    Remember guys Steam ran this countries railways for 100+ years and without it modern traction would not exist because without steam there would have been not power source to build the loco's in the first place, or any need for railways.

    now all these pictures I have posted before but they will do to start this thread.

    good point it should read BR Blue Pre Tops onwards rather than 1990's- modern day

    well the shots will be most welcome here .

    Additional to the beginning disclaimer this is not intended to compete with the main U.K. Screenshots section just to promote U.K steam.

    I always wondered who made this, and now I know LNER, I found this picture a while back in Google and I loved it, I have this saved as my desktop picture, it's that glare from the firebox that does it for me, if only Auran steam engines could look like this at night along with the coaches, that would be one in the eye at Railworks...

    Great shot there LNER

    Here a few screenshots from me then.

    A Sulzer Type 4 on the sea front near Olemouth.

    A Black 5 and Standard 5 pass each other at Wolverton Station.

    An A3 Passesunder the North Wolve Jubction Signal Box.

    A Standard 4 appears from the Chapel Hill Tunnel with a Local to Olemouth.

    Valliant2995 what part of the WCML ar you doing, I was also planning to do Baddesley Colliery as well. To go into to my Trent Valley Layout.

    I might, at some point, do Rugby to Tamworth, but it's a long way down the list!

    I'll do Atherstone Station as part of Baddesley, but my main interest there is the industiral railway and the colliery, not the WCML.

    Rugby will be done at some point, because I want to re-create the Rugby Leamington line, which was still part open as a freight only branch when I lived next to it as a child.

    It's very tempting then to go up to Nuneaton, because I work next to the WCML at Brinklow.

    2995Valliant Sound nice looking at you're images I guess you using TRS09 or higher. I wouldn't mind extending the Trent Valley line layout down to Rugby and up to Lichfield but I need to find some more info about the Tamworth, Rugby and Lichfield in the 1950's and 60's.

    Like the screenshots Stovepipe.

    I can't see the point of this. People are posting steam shots in the existing UK Hi-Res thread. It would be better if we had separate UK Diesel/Electric and UK Steam threads. However, I'll join in with a few pics.







    Best wishes,

    Well, the point is that though people are still posting steam there it is lost amongst Diesels and Electrics, this thread is meant to be where like minded people, who prefer steam, yet may like other forms of power can focus their steam creativity here, basically the steam part of what you said about 2 separate Diesel/Electric and Steam Threads you may not see the point in this thread i don't see the point in other threads, but I don't say anything in them about it for example KRS thread all I have said in there is about the S&D representation, no-one is forcing anyone to view/post in threads. Thankyou for your contribution to this thread, look forward to more.
