fifty years ago
Two Ivo Peters shots from probably my favourite location on the S&D - Midford. Hopefully this will be the scene again in (hopefully less than!) 50 years time!
The first DMU to run on the S&D, back in 1958. Apart from a few special trains (like this) the S&D was steam worked to the end. Had the S&D been dieselised it could well have survived - but the WR were determined to kill the S&D at any cost!
All these shots are from the 2008 Ivo Peters calendar, available from the station shop.
