Class 104, M50455 at Manchester Victoria.skoðað 4 sinnumA 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.
Class 101 3-Car DMU at Dawlish.skoðað 4 sinnumA Metro-Cam Class 101 3-Car DMU, with 51219 leading, departs from Dawlish with an evening Exeter St Davids to Paignton all-stations service on the 31st May 1989.
The Deltic Scotsman Farewell -York - 2/1/82.skoðað 3 sinnumHistory in the making at York on the 2nd January 1982. In poor weather conditions, 55015 -'Tulyar' brings the final BR Deltic hauled Northbound passenger train, 'The Deltic Scotsman Farewell' into York on the 2nd January 1982. The train was an out and back from Kings Cross to Edinburgh, ensuring that after 20 years as Kings of the ECML, these locomotives bowed out in style. It was only fitting for me to come here, as it was at York many years previously that a saw my first Deltic.
3H Class 205, 1124 enters Southampton Central.skoðað 4 sinnum3H 'Hampshire' Class 205 DEMU enters Southampton Central on a dull July 28th 1978 with a service for Portsmouth & Southsea. The unit is passing the utilitarian brick signalbox constructed by the Southern Railway in 1935.

Class 47, 47426 at Kirkham North Junction.skoðað 4 sinnumClass 47, 47426 takes the station avoiding line at Kirkham North Junction whilst working the Saturdays Only Blackpool North to Glasgow Central service on September 24th 1988. Stabled in the sidings are a rake of 'Turbot' departmental ballast/spoil wagons.
141001 at Leeds Holbeck Depot.skoðað 1 sinnumThe first of the second generation production DMUs, 141001 stands out of use at Leeds Holbeck Depot on March 15th 1987. The Class 141s were the only units to have the narrow Leyland National bus bodies with 2+2 seating. With bodies built at the Leyland Factory at Workington and underframes and final assembly done at Derby, 141001 was finished in Barrow Corporation bus blue rather than rail blue when completed in 1984. The units were refurbished in the late 1980s, but have now been withdrawn.
47035 at Vigo on the Lickey Incline.skoðað 2 sinnum47035 toils up the Lickey Incline with a relief SW/NE service formed of MkI stock on a hot Saturday September 5th 1981. 47035 and its train had assisted the previous train hauled by 47480 up the incline. As 47480 restarted, the two services separated and followed each other towards the summit. In todays health & safety obsessed world, can you imagine this happening now! In a sign of the more civilised times back then, the two youthful enthusiasts wanted to know which 47 was on the train in front.
Class 08 08710 at Swindon Works.skoðað 1 sinnumA study in concentration in A Shop at Swindon Works on May 14th 1984. 08710 has its wasp stripes applied as its overhaul and repaint comes to a conclusion. Not too sure what the Health & Safety brigade would make of this operation these days. 08710 was new from Crewe Works in April 1960 as D3877, it was a Scottish Region allocated machine for most of its 32 year operational life, being withdrawn in January 1993 and scrapped at Motherwell Depot in September the same year.

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
