Then and Now
1967 - 2017
Throughout the first seven months of 1967 I made various trips to London. Waterloo station and Nine Elms engine sheds were the main destinations although I did venture to Kings Cross on a couple of occasions when 4472 Flying Scotsman worked specials from there.
The Locomotive Club of Great Britain (LCGB) ran their 100th rail tour on the 5 February. I didn't travel on this tour but saw the departure from London Waterloo. 50 years less a day, I also saw a steam departure from London.
Nine Elms was the last great steam shed in London but by 1967 was looking very run down. The site is now used by the New Covent Garden market.
