News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

There are lots of free graphics/viewer programs available that enable you to resize pictures. A good one to try is FastStone.

Great photo of Belvedere with that "streamlined" casing.  Built by Sentinel (Shrewsbury) in 1945 and at the Rochester wharf from 1950 to 1957.

Heres another loco shot taken at Corys in the 50s, this time the loco is 'Belvedere'. The famous crane can be seen in the background.

I found this which will be of interest to Sentinel S4 among others.



marked as sentinel loco Greenwich at William Cory Wharf, Rochester, 1955.
