03079 at Doncaster Works.5 zobrazeníClass 03, 03079 has returned to its birthplace at Doncaster Works, for overhaul in October 1979. Built in 1960, the shunter had been allocated to North Eastern Region Depots and was a Gateshead machine when this picture was taken. Fame was still in the future for 03079, as in 1983 it migrated south to Eastleigh, before being transferred across the Solent to the Isle of Wight in April 1984. It was withdrawn from service in 1996, and was eventually preserved at the Derwent Valley Railway near York.

Class 306 EMUs at Leicester (GC).2 zobrazeníDating from 1949, former Liverpool St-Shenfield Class 306 EMUs, 055, 033, 083 & 078 wait at the entrance to Vic Berrys Scrapyard at Leicester on July 19th 1982. The location is adjacent to the former Great Central Main Line, that last saw a passenger train in 1969 when the DMU service between Rugby and Nottingham was withdrawn. Upperton Road bridge that once spanned the extensive trackwork at this location, was demolished in 2007 - yet another bit of the infrastructure of the old GC Main Line lost forever.13. Únor 2015
