73001 arrives at Southampton Central.4 visningarA 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.

The loco had been withdrawn from Cambridge Depot on New Years Eve 1978 and sent back to its birthplace for stripping and component recovery. Within a month of this picture taken in February 1979, 03008 ceased to exist. Which phillistines allowed this grand building to slip away in an orgy of destruction in the name of progress?

Class 306 EMUs at Leicester (GC).2 visningarDating 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.

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
