Bulleid Pacifics from A. E. Brown
Author: gbmott

By popular demand, some Bulleid Pacifics for this week's dose of A. E. Brown.

1.  34062 17 Squadron - Worting Jct. 4-20-56
2.  35017  Belgian Marine - Worting Jct. 4-15-56
3.  35020  Bibby Line - Basingstoke 5-30-56

A lot more where these came from . . . . .

Thank you, Gordon. "Popular demand" has been suitably satisfied....at least for this one person. Three splendid images, indeed. And the hits from Mr. Brown's camera keep on coming...!

Third photo shows 35020 just a month after being rebuilt heading the lunchtime Pullman 'Bournemouth Belle'.

In unrebuilt form, 35020 was notorious for an incident on April 24, 1953, when the driving axle fractured while accelerating on a descending grade. This resulted in a temporary withdrawal of the entire class for inspections of the driving axles.  Three years later, 35020 would become the second of the rebuilt Merchants.

I was on an excursion with the City of Wells in the spring of 1983. Wonderful trip, engine, train and crew.
