EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR takes us back to Penzance Station in Cornwall, circa 1960. The image beautifully captures a nostalgic scene that transports us to a bygone era of rail travel. In this snapshot, we see two magnificent locomotives side by side, each with its own unique charm and character. On the left stands the impressive Warship diesel locomotive No. D604, affectionately known as Cossack. Its sleek design and powerful presence make it an awe-inspiring sight against the backdrop of Penzance Station. This mighty machine represents a new era in railway technology, showcasing the advancements made during this period. Beside it rests Castle Class locomotive No. 7006 named Lydford Castle, exuding elegance and grandeur with its classic steam engine features. This majestic beauty harks back to an earlier time when steam power ruled supreme on Britain's railways. The juxtaposition of these two locomotives symbolizes both progress and tradition within the world of rail transportation. It serves as a reminder of how far we have come while honoring our rich heritage. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are transported not only to Penzance Station but also into history itself - where innovation meets nostalgia and where timeless engineering marvels continue to captivate generations young and old alike.
