LSWR Steam Extravaganza 150

Fresh out out of the scanner. Over the weekend of 23 and 24 July 1988 to celebrate 150 years on the London & South Western Railway, BR Networkq Southeast ran several steam hauled excursions around the Salisbury area. I recall the lineside and bridges packed with chuffer fans including me. Tap, click, lick or whatever floats your boat for bigger images 

34092 City of Wells, departs Salisbury with the 'Atlantic Coast Express', Saturday 23 July 1988. Rolleicord Vb Kodak T-Max 400. Skew Bridge was so busy, I had to hold the camera over my head and look up in to the viewfinder to achieve this photograph.
