Britain's railways was now made up of the Western Region, Southern Region, Scottish Region, Eastern Region, North Eastern Region and London Midland Region - the old LNER being divided a mongst the two newly- formed Regions: Eastern and North Eastern, whilst the Scottish Region was composed partly of the former LMS and LNER.

For example, it was not unusual for the Stanier 'Black 5' and in particular the new BR Standard classes, to be found working hundreds of miles from the Region they were initially allocated. Colin was born in the North East and spent his grammar school years living in Corbridge, Northumberland.

Colin's email address is (Left) Former North Eastern Region engine driver John Moor Evans (Jock) sadly passed away aged 96, surrounded by family at Tandridge Heights Care Home, Hythe, Kent, on Monday 11th January 2016.Over the years, the Regional boundaries diminished significantly, including the North Eastern Region which was absorbed into the ER in 1967.As a result, many locomotives (from an operational standpoint) worked beyond their arbitrary Regions, so in many ways it is meaningless to classify any particular class of locomotive as belonging to any one of the six Regions during the transition from steam. I have recently been contacted by Colin Mason, who currently works and lives in Japan.However, like most young train spotters, simply collecting engine numbers on its own was not enough and he soon hankered after a camera so that he could record the action on his local line.He started out with the family Box Brownie but this did not give him the results he craved and in July 1960 he bought a Halina 35X camera, archaic by today's standards but pretty much top-of-the-range for a 13 year-old! Brian's early railway photography was taken in black & white, but he did buy one colour negative film for a special event.
