News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

Faversham, Sauturday 11th July, test running to Margate.



And, ladies and gentlemen, for a mere 48.70 you may travel from Ashford to St.Pancras and back again on the preview service.

What a bargain.

Smeed Railway Station. Near Ashford Kent.
In 1850, six years after opening the South Eastern Main Line, a deputation of local tradesmen pressed the SER to open a station in the village, arguing that the potential goods traffic that could be generated would outweigh the lack of passenger receipts. Although there was little in the way to suggest that Smeeth could justify and support a railway station, the SER agreed to the venture. A site was chosen one mile to the south of the village at a point where the Bonnington to Smeeth road (now the B2069) crossed the railway line. The land was owned by the Knatchbull-Hugessen family,

Okay, it's not a loco. But I remember these cages as a common sight on stations and yet now the parcels traffic is no more...

This is at Rochester.

A couple of photos of The Golden Arrow at Folkstone recently.

For those folk you do not know, The Golden Arrow was used on the record cover of Madonna's song, Holiday.

I have  posted these photos on the forum before, it shouldn't be any harm posting them again, for who mist them before.

Look at the difference between The Golden Arrow in the first photo at Dover and the last one, the one I took this year.  Spot the difference.

No. 42 was one of a large class of standardised diesel shunters constructed for the War Department during 1941, being dispatched to France as part of the D-Day landings. The name ''Overlord'' is a recent addition, being added during 2000 as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the D-Day landings, for which it was again shipped over to France for the event. For most of its operational post-war career, No. 42 was employed by the MOD as a shunter at Long Marston, Warwickshire.
