Early Victorian Royal Train
In the yard at Chinley station stands a model of Queen Victoria's Royal Train as run for her in 1844 by the London & South Western Railway. The locomotive is a Rothwell 2-2-2 and the Queen's saloon is in the middle of the train. A train like this was used to collect Queen Victoria at Gosport pier when she had sailed across from her retreat in Osbourne House on the Isle of Wight. The model is by Famous Trains' member Peter Swift. (Year taken, 2022)
BR Standard Steam
The British Railways standard range of locomotives were introduced from 1951 with a view to replacing the oldest of the former regional types. A total of 999 standard steam locomotives were built before the threat of dieselisation and rationalisation completely negated the need for more new steam locomotives. This picture shows the Capitals United Express being hauled by one such a locomotive. (Year taken, 2022)
