This is one of a small number of photographs taken by me on Saturday 1st October 1988, at Waterloo Railway Station, at the Ian Allan Network 150 Day. The event was organised by the well known transport publishers, Ian Allan, to celebrate the notional 150th anniversary of Britain’s railway network, though there were of course several passenger railways in operation before 1838. The event included the posing of various historic locomotives at some of Waterloo’s platforms. It is difficult to see such an event being held today at a major London terminus, because of the perceived security risks. So the day was quite an historic one in more senses than one.

Technical notes:- Taken long before digital cameras were generally available, the photographs were originated on Agfacolor colour negative film, and were professionally scanned from the original negatives onto CD in January 2010. After over 21 years, I cannot remember exactly which platforms these photos were taken at, although from a photo of a departing train, I can say that it was at the end of the station where trains used to leave for Windsor & Reading. So although I can, I believe, locate the correct square, I can only locate these photos in it very generally. They are submitted primarily for the interest of their content.
