Railway, Railway days

Hastings diesel tour

This morning saw me up early, so decided to take myself to Bromley South to indulge in a bit of nostalgia. The Thumper group on Facebook had published the timings for the Hastings diesel tour from Hastings to Crewe and back which stopped at Bromley South to pick up punters.

So car ride to Beckenham junction and train to Bromley South saw me arrive in good time, in fact too early but I was able to capture freight hauled by 2 class 60s heading London bound. Checking realtime the special was making good progress having been 4 minutes down around Tonbridge but near enough right time 8.08am at Bromley South


platform 1 as though she had never been away. I was surprised that she is fitted with central locking hence the orange lights and also had a modern tail lamp on the back in addition to the red blinds. The brief stop ended all too quickly and off to Crewe she went, hope they have a great day.
