Dave Hill Photographs

These photos were kindly sent to us by Dave Hill. Dave was a prolific trainspotter in the 1960s and saw all of the 10xx Counties. At the bottom of the page is his County spotters log from the 1960s.

A cracking shot of 1013 County of Dorset at Shrewsbury 26.07.63

1013 County of Dorset passing Tyseley with a goods train on 29.09.62

1014 County of Glamorgan at Birmingham Snowhill 22.06.63

Two views of 1021 County of Montgomery at 82B St Phillips Marsh, the upper on 18.08.63 and the lower on 26.04.64, sadly by then minus its nameplates

An evocative shot of the Great Western Main Line with 1021 County of Montgomery piloting 5059 originally Powis Castle but renamed Earl St. Aldwyn in 1937, seen here passing Moreton-on-Lugg on 31.07.61

We finish with this rather sad view of work worn 1024 County of Pembroke in for repair at Wolverhampton Works. From the looks of things it has been towed to the Works for repair as the connecting rod is on the running plate chained to the nameplate and roped to the boiler, presumably with the other one in a similar position on the other side. 16.12.62
