Windsor and Maidenhead Branch

Specials to Windsor

   First GBRf 73141 Charlotte leads a rail tour composed of former “Hastings” unit 1001 into Windsor and Eton Riverside on 11 October 2009. Sister electro-diesels 73212 and 73213 were on the other end. Unfortunately the Hastings unit had sufferred a partial derailiment on arrival which caused the tour to be terminated.   Alan Cooke

   On Bank Holiday Monday, 3 May 2010, Britannia 70013 Oliver Cromwell, topped and tailed by West Coast Railway Company’s 47245, operated a series of specials to Riverside in connection with a Girl Guides’ event. In evening sunshine, the Pacific accelerates the last train of the day, 19.10 Windsor-Victoria, through Datchet.   Jim Tucker
