OLD photos, including one of a derailment at Shawford in the 1950s, have been sent to the Chronicle.

L.J White, of Sparrow Square, Eastleigh, was inspired by the Bygone Hampshire features in the newspaper.

The derailment was around July 20 1952 and the train was a Lord Nelson class Howard of Effingham.
