73001 arrives at Southampton Central.vaatamisi: 4A pair of Southern Region rail built home signals act as gate guardians, as a very smart looking 73001 enters Southampton Central with a short mail/parcels working bound for Weymouth on July 28th 1978. The first of the Class 73 Electro-Diesels, 73001 emerged from Eastleigh Works in February 1962 as E6001. The class was indigenous to the Southern Region for most of their working lives, but in a bizarre twist, five 73s ended up on Merseyside in the 1990s, including the locomotive seen here.

Class 306 EMUs at Leicester (GC).vaatamisi: 2Dating 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Great Central Main Line, that last saw a passenger train in 1969 when the DMU service between Rugby and Nottingham was withdrawn.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.veebr 13, 2015
