Some of my teenage memories

In these strange times it is good to look back at memories we have, here are a few pictures I took of P Tanks in the early 1970s. I would have been about 15 or 16 when I took the early ones on my "Dial the weather" 35mm camera!

No.27

27 at (I think) Polay Bridge just north of Sheffield Park.
 
27 on top shed with 75027 in the "temporary" shed extension!
27 about to leave Sheffield Park
 

No. 323

323 running round through Platform 2 with Driver John White in charge
 
Taking water on Platform 2 at Sheffield Park with Russell Pearce on the bag
 
Driver Pip Stephens with 323 on the coal dock at Sheffield Park with the phase 1 workshop in the background

No.178

If you have enjoyed looking at these pictures and had your memories jogged in a nice way please consider making a donation towards the continuing restoration of No.27. Without your support we cannot carry on with the restoration at the same rate experienced so far.
A donation of £27 (or any amount) would go a long way towards our aim.
(with gift aid that becomes £33.75)

If you can help us, please make your donation on line at: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/27
 
Thank you
