Class 104, M50455 at Manchester Victoria.4 zobrazeníA scene from the Manchester Victoria of old - a well worn location with an equally well-worn first generation diesel multiple unit. A Class 104 BRCW DMU with M50455 leading, was awaiting departure for Blackpool North on the 16th September 1980. These units, allocated just up the line at Newton Heath, dominated the services to Blackpool & Southport in the 1970s and into the early 1980s.

Withdrawn D1056 -'Western Sultan' at Swindon Works.5 zobrazeníClass 52, D1056 -'Western Sultan' has reached the end of the line as it awaits the torch at Swindon Works in February 1979. No more would the locomotive visit Paddington, travel along Brunel's billiard table to Bristol, head underneath the red cliffs alongside the South Devon coast and never cross the Tamar heading for the far west. D1056 emerged from Crewe Works in March 1963 and was withdrawn from Plymouth Laira Depot in December 1976, clocking up 1,352,000 miles in its 13 year career.

DMU Excursion at Blaenau Ffestiniog.3 zobrazeníAnother view of a Ramblers Excursion from East Lancashire to North Wales, stood in the former LNWR Goods Yard, amidst the slate at Blaenau Ffestiniog in May 1978. The 10-Car formation consisted of a Class 104 3-car set, a Class 108 2-car, a Class 105 2-car and at the rear another 3-car Class 104. The train had first travelled to Llandudno before traversing the Conway Valley Line. The nearest car is Class 104 DMBS M50468.

47480 at Vigo on the Lickey Incline.1 zobrazeníAn ailing 47480-'Robin Hood' splutters up the Lickey Incline at Vigo whilst struggling to lift a SW/NE service up the 1in37 gradient on September 5th 1981. The loco had expired at the foot of the incline and the following service, hauled by 47035 pushed the train up the bank until the driver of 47480 managed to get the engine re-started. Once underway, 47480 and its train of MkI stock pulled away. The incident caused chaos on a busy Summer Saturday with trains not being able to get a run at the incline.

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Great Central Main Line, that last saw a passenger train in 1969 when the DMU service between Rugby and Nottingham was withdrawn.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
