'Furzebrook flyer' 1990ish

Postby Steve47005 » 19 Feb 2010 11:43

I am trying to update my Class 33 haulage records and I have just found some slides of a railtour called 'The Furzebrook Flyer' I did with a 33/1 from Bournemouth central to the Furzebrook branch which also took in the Hamworthy branch not long before I joined the 'big' railway in 1991. Does anyone recall this tour? any gen would be much appreciated.

Have you tried http://www.sixbellsjunction.co.uk ?
Just had a quick look, but couldn't find anything for 1990 or 1991 under the name 'Furzebrook Flyer'

Maybe a member or two from The Bournemouth Railway Club might be able to help.
Believe their Secretary is Mr M Clancy on 01202 552007.

Thanks Buzby, but I have found the gen. It was a 'Dutch' 33118 and 4tc + 5tc on the 29/12/1990. :roll:
The loco and stock worked two tours to the 'Dorset Branches' that day one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I also found my slides of the trip too!!

A piccie is here too: - My Lords sir...

Select '33/1' section then go to 33118's thumbnails where you should get to see it on Platform 4 at Bournemouth Station.

Should have answered sooner, as it's my website. I tend to move the site around hosting sites, so please use the domain http://www.class33crompton.co.uk.

I was on the tour that day, I should have the original tour book somewhere, I will look it out sometime and add a section on the railtour section of the website. I am slowing scanning my old slides & negs, and have got to 1989, so hopefully there will be more pics from that tour on the site soon.

Cheers, Jon
