Lost amongst the streets of a housing estate
in Murcia in southern Spain, we came across
this small preserved locomotive, sitting on a
plinth in the middle of an urban roundabout.
No plaque, no explanation. I imagine it must
have been rescued from an industrial concern
that was demolished to make way for housing
development or beachside apartments. There
wasn't a good angle for a general view so I
just took this detail shot of the side of the
boiler. It has a pleasing palette and a - for me - pleasing arrangement of bits and pieces
and pipes and springs and things.
It was the start of a fascination with steam locomotives that endures today.
It was considerably enhanced by making a film, with director Richard Piper, about a
British team of amateurs rescuing a dozen locomotives from arctic Finland. That film got
the immediate attention of the BBC when they were commissioning a new series of
Great Railway Journeys, and we were immediately recruited as a production team on the
strength of our short film. Our contribution to the series was to be Fairbanks to
Anchorage in Alaska - a trip I'd actually done - with Carrie Fisher presenting. But alas the
film turned out to be a reserve project in case any other in the series failed for whatever
reason, and none did. C'est la vie.
