JOHN POWELL'S

TRAINSPOTTING DATA RECORDS.

Over the last five years John Powell has provided photographic detail and records that have given
visitors to this website unique research data and photographic memories of the railways in our area.

This page has been developed to publish John's original spotting records of local movements
during the early sixties along with several visits to Crewe and Doncaster works.
John also lists a staggering amount of data from a coach trip he took, from Carlisle to West Scotland,
on October 28th 1962.

I'm sure you will find the following detail a very nostalgic insight into which steam engines were
common sights on the North Wales Coast main line during the 1960's.

It is also interesting to note the abundance of LMS steam locomotives that were still an everyday
sight in the early 60's. Also it is exciting to browse the data and picture the sight of
Jub's, Patriot's, Scot's, Princess's, Semi's, Black Fives and Brit's amongst the lines of
engines awaiting attention at Crewe works.

In stark contrast to the lines of condemned engines listed on Phil Seymour's Data page at Cashmore's
and Woodham's yards, awaiting their fate,  just a few years later.

Many thanks to John for allowing us to share this unique data.

The two photo's below show the contrasting scene at Crewe works in 1953 and then in 1970.






The two photo's below show folders published by Crewe Works, that were distributed
to visitors during organized visits in 1955.




The folder below was distributed during John's visit in 1970.
 


The photograph below shows one of the tour guides, taking a break in the erecting shop, who regularly
took parties around Crewe works. John remembers that they used to take parties around twice on Sundays
and he particularly remembers that he had many an interesting chat with this guide and John is sure that
he will be recognized and fondly remembered by many site visitors.

Black Five 45111 (7C) in near Ex-works condition, rests on Crewe North shed on
December 5th 1948.
 



The following five shots are by courtesy of Bradford Barton Publishing. The photos appeared in a book titled
"Crewe, A Railway Centre"  by Rex Christiansen. The photographer was Brian Morrison.
46164, 42962 and 71000 are dated August 20th 1955, 41229 and 46235 were taken on August 20th 1955.
(Many thanks to David Campbell for the above information and dates)

They portray the scene and capture the exciting atmosphere that anyone who visited Crewe during this
period will no doubt remember. The first one shows the iron footbridge which was
affectionately known as "The Spotters Bridge".
The following four were taken from the bridge.

The following two photographs, which give a good feel for Crewe station and the "spotters bridge",
are by kind permission of David Hey, whose tremendous website is well worth a visit-
providing you have a few hours to spare because , I suspect , like me you will find it impossible
to leave once you have entered as it is such compulsive reading and full of railway interest.

Visit to Crewe Area.   October  30th, 1966.
 
This data list is from a week before Phil Seymour`s list of November 6th 1966, and there is not a lot of
changes between the two, but I thought I would publish it anyway.
On the list, the first class 40 ( No D322 ) was withdrawn after a collision with soda ash wagons at Moore near
Warrington, some time earlier in the year. 
I took a photo of it in the works and it is reproduced below. (John Powell)

Although Chester shed ( 6a ) had closed in 1967, my friends and I did a Crewe Works visit by car on the
 
21st of January 1968, which contained for our first time no steam, but we called at Chester Shed and found that
 
it still had some steam engines around the depot.
