Class 45, 45051 arrives at Exeter St Davids.2 x angesehenVery much a routine sight at the time, 45051 slips into Exeter St Davids with a lengthy NE/SW service formed of MkI stock on July 27th 1978.

Along the platform can be seen BRUTE trollies, another common sight at every main station, they too along with the Peak, the MkIs and the vintage signals belong to a vanished world.

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Great Central Main Line, that last saw a passenger train in 1969 when the DMU service between Rugby and Nottingham was withdrawn.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