EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative black-and-white photograph, transport enthusiasts Ernie Simms and Brian Kervin proudly stand before diesel locomotive No. D7010, a fine example of the iconic Hymek class, at the Steam Museum of the Great Western Railway. The D7000 Hymek class locomotives, affectionately named after the Hymatic Electric Traction Ltd. that supplied their electrical equipment, were a common sight on the British railway network from the late 1950s through to the 1970s. Ernie Simms, with his arms folded and a determined look in his eyes, wears the uniform of a railway staff member. His extensive knowledge and passion for railway history is evident in his engaged expression. Brian Kervin, on the other hand, dons a casual attire, reflecting the enthusiasm and dedication of the many volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to preserving and maintaining these historical machines. The locomotive, No. D7010, sits majestically in the background, its powerful diesel engine and distinctive curved cab design a testament to the engineering prowess of the era. The steam era was gradually being replaced by diesel and electric locomotives, and the D7010 represents a pivotal moment in the transition. The Steam Museum of the Great Western Railway provides a unique opportunity for visitors to step back in time and explore the rich history of railway transport. With a focus on preserving and showcasing historical steam and diesel locomotives, the museum offers an unparalleled experience for railway enthusiasts and history buffs alike. This photograph of Ernie Simms and Brian Kervin with D7010 serves as a reminder of the passion and dedication that drives the preservation of our railway heritage.
