    Ah but the downside of that is that you would now be an old git like those of us who did witness it!

    True, but in this day and age, I know which I'd rather be! I'd love to have seen the golden age of rail and road travel, not today's throwaway stuff.

    I'm not sure about "Golden Age"....Nine Elms was more "Grubby Age!" and here are a few more from 1966....in the rain. 20170811132155_09 35030.jpg 20170811133201_01 34037.jpg 20170811133201_07.jpg 20170811133201_09 35022 Holland America Line.jpg

    How did all you all afford colour???

    Nine Elms on 8 January 1966 - no bother getting in, I suppose that may have been due to it being a Saturday afternoon, I don't know.
    Visit to London was to take part in the S15 Commemorative rail tour the following day.
