Here are a few photos taken by Mike Coulson during his visit:






He had travelled up from Southampton earlier in the day behind 34064 diverted via Guildford.

Mike also sent this photo taken at Waterloo of 35022 on the 10.30 on Saturday 31st July 1965. It was taken either by Mike or one of the lads he travelled with - so long ago. He asks - any idea who the crew are?
Dave Bryce has written: they could be Fireman Vic Spillett with the Disc Board and Top Link Driver George Holloway approaching the engine from the right.


Mike commented:
"My main interest was timing and recording speeds - and I also took a few snaps with a Brownie 127. Looking back, I'm amazed at the interest most of the Nine Elms crews took in me and their kind words. I particularly remember Frank Matthews, Reuben Hendicott, Mr Hawkins and Harry Pope - great guys."
