Class 25, 25145 at Manchester Victoria.skoðað 5 sinnumIn September 1979, Class 25 25145 was the wallside pilot bank engine at Manchester Victoria. The locomotive was on standby to bank eastbound freight trains up the steep gradient to Miles Platting. The wallside pilots, along with the old ramshackle Manchester Victoria with its coastal buffet, visible here in the shadows behind 25145, are long departed.

Class 24, 24066 at Doncaster Works.skoðað 6 sinnumPreviously allocated to Edinburgh Haymarket Depot, Class 24, 24066 had been withdrawn from service in February 1976 and was at Doncaster Works for scrapping in June 1978. Final disposal of the former D5066, which was vacuum braked only, came in September 1978. The image taken at the works open day, clearly illustrates the perils of photography at such occasions!

Class 104, M53529 at Rufford.skoðað 5 sinnumWith the former goods loading dock ramp in the foreground, a Class 104 2-Car DMU with M53529 leading, departs from Rufford with an Ormskirk to Preston Service on the 11th May 1988. For many years this unit had been a three car set working off Newton Heath Depot on Manchester Victoria to Blackpool North Services. By the time this image was recorded the unit had lost its centre car and was having an extended life as the newly introduced class 142s were starting to have reliability issues.

Cravens Class 105 M50784 at Morecambe Promenade.skoðað 5 sinnumIn the 1970s a ride on one of these was something to be avoided, rattles, the smell of diesel, and noise from the underfloor engines all adding to the experience. Now 30 years on, having suffered Class 142s, a ride on a Cravens DMU would be quite luxurious. On May 6th 1979, M50784 was at Morecambe Promenade Station with a departure to Preston. The former Midland Railway Station here, was closed in 1994, despite its Seafront location. The 'new' Morecambe Station is now sited nearer the town centre.

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Great Central Main Line, that last saw a passenger train in 1969 when the DMU service between Rugby and Nottingham was withdrawn.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