No.41 - Autumn 1982



NOTES FROM THE COMMITTEE

Well, that's it - another Summer has passed. Am I the only one thinking that it's been a strange Summer. Thanks to union disputes we rail buffs had a late start to our Summer, and no sooner have we got all the 'moves' worked out, the 25s to Welshpool, or the 40s in North Wales perhaps than we find our trains are withdrawn for the Winter period. Summer has not been the same without Boycott and Gooch opening for England as they chose to visit South Africa last Winter. Selectors now choose South Africans to play for England ! (Lamb and Greig). Yorkshire recall Ray Illingworth as Captain. Can all this be true?
All is not lost however. Your Committee has been hard at work arranging a host of events designed to keep you, the member, happy and contented through the long Winter ahead. Dates for the annual quiz competition have been finalised and we eagerly await battle to commence to win the much-coveted Pennine Shield (surely its our turn to win this year.) We await an invitation to take part in the General Knowledge quiz to be held at the LNER Club at Swinton, Mexborough .Your Pennine Professors have spent much of the Summer deep In encyclopaedias whilst the railway lines were rusting and the Learned Lot are awaiting the 'off'.
National celebrities will appear at our social evenings at the Corporation Brewery Taps, Cleveland Street, Doncaster on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, and at the Grapes Hotel, Trippet Lane, Sheffield on the second Tuesdays. We have produced a trips list exciting enough even for the most discerning punter.
Don't hibernate for the Winter-come and enjoy yourself with the Pennine. Have a laugh with (or at) the Committee. Accompany us on our trips, attend our social evenings, support us in the competitions-and why not bring a friend along, to buy the drinks!

EDITOR'S NOTES

After the events of the last couple of months, it is a pleasure to be able to write these notes as the trains are running almost normally, and in keeping with the spirit of the occasion, the flexible roster imposed on the Editor by the rest of the Committee should ensure another magazine in December.
On a more serious note, a disastrous accident almost occurred just South of Doncaster during late August when an HST travelling at over 10Omph hit an obstruction deliberately placed on the line. In spite of BR's enviable safety record (especially compared to road travel) it seems almost Inevitable that one day soon a major rail disaster will be caused by some mindless vandals In search of a bit of *fun*.The yearly reports of the Railway Safety Inspectorate highlight the growing problem, but as usual it will probably take a major incident with fatalities to draw the great British public's attention to it. Where the answer lies is open to debate, but it is hard to comprehend how a person can enjoy placing the lives of hundreds in jeopardy.

AXE FOR SLEEPER SERVICES?

It is feared that the next round of service cuts may bring to an end to various sleeper services throughout the country. Several major cities could lose their overnight link with London, including Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Cardiff and Bristol, as well as towns like Preston, Barrow and Holyhead. This would enable all the older Mk.1 Sleeping Cars to be withdrawn, and their Mk.III. replacements to be used on only the most profitable routes ,e.g. London to Edinburgh/Glasgow, and to Penzance.

SOUTH YORKSHIRE CORNER

June 8th.saw our 10th. Anniversary celebrations when a social evening and pea and pie supper was held at the Grapes. One of the largest attendances we have ever had took part in various quizzes and competitions and a good time was had by all. Our July meeting was also well attended, so much so that the Members' Slide night had to be extended to the August meeting to be able to accommodate the number of members whose slides didn't get shown in July. Our programme continues as follows:-
September 14th. - Ron Chaplin October 12th. - David Bladen 'Railways by Numbers' November 9th. - Pennine Shield Quiz Competition. December 14th. - Jack Davis
I would like to place on record my appreciation of the Gift Voucher with which I was presented during our social evening at the Grapes in June. When Robin handed it over to me, I had no idea anything of the kind was afoot and so I was taken completely by surprise. Many thanks to everyone for this kind gesture.
Cheerio for now - Jack Davis.

RESULTS

 At the meeting at the Grapes in June, the Mastermind contest was won by Jon Davis after a decider with Paul Bates. The slide contest was won by Paul Bates with a shot of 5407 and 5690 'Leander' on the northbound Cumbrian Mountain Express approaching Horton-in-Ribblesdale on 29th.May 1982.A competition on the whereabouts of suburban stations was won by Tony Caddick after a decider with David Bladen. (Tony knew that Dunlop Station was in Glasgow).

LUCKY ESCAPE (1)

Passengers on a WCML express had a lucky escape on August 10th. when their train narrowly missed a runaway grain trailer near Hemel Hempstead. The trailer was in a field being loaded when it 6lipped down the railway embankment and overturned at the bottom, spilling most of its load of barley onto the line. The Incident caused several cancellations at Euston during the evening rush-hour with both commuters and Inter-City passengers experiencing delays.

LUCKY ESCAPE (2)

A week earlier, the overnight Paddington-Milford Haven passenger/newspaper train ran into a h4rd of Friesian bullocks straying across the tracks near Llanelli. A parcel van next to the engine was partially derailed and to complicate matters a light engine travelling In the opposite direction also ran into the cattle, immobilising the engine with a severed vacuum pipe. Considerable delays ensued and a Pair of Pennine members in the midst of an all-line Rover were hastily woken up and transferred to a bus to continue their journey.


RETURN OF THE DELTICS

At approximately 14-00 hours on Friday 20th.August the Deltic Preservation Society's two locomotives,55009 'ALYCIDON' and 55019 'ROYAL HIGHLAND FUSILIER' bade a final farewell to their sister locomotives for the last time (unless several wealthy enthusiasts produce quickly). After a special handing over ceremony the locos left the Works under their own power, but due to a BR decision taken a few days earlier, were coupled together outside the Plant offices to a brake van and towed Northwards via Knottingley by 37100.Appropriately the driver was Harry Wilson of York MPD, a great Deltic fan and a man well known by admirers of the Class (see Issue 1 of 'Rail Enthusiast' magazine). The locos were then stabled overnight at Thornaby.
The two gleaming beasts arrived at Grosmont on the North York Moors Railway at 07-30 towed by a Class 3l.'ALYCIDON' was then used to marshal the stock for the 10-55 service to Pickering before going on display at Grosmont station. The 10-55 was then worked by 55019.returning with the 12-20 to Grosmont. The roles were reversed as 55019 went on display and 55009 worked the 1455 to Pickering and 16-20 return.
It is not known how often the locos will appear in service, although at least one should be running on the NYMR Diesel Day on October 31st.At present, both locomotives are still in BR livery, although 'ALYCIDON' has had her Finsbury Park style white window frames re-applied. It is Intended to keep her in this livery, but restore 55019 to original two-tone green. Both locos for the time being at least have been fitted with Class 37 type horns which do not sound at all authentic. If possible it is hoped to replace these sometime in the future with the more distinctive sounding horn with which the locos were fitted in BR service.
After the euphoria of the reprieve of these locomotives it is sad to relate that two more have been destroyed by the cutter's torch at Doncaster Works. To the dismay of her many admirers 55007 'PINZA' was broken up during July, then during August 55008 *THE GREEN HOWARDS', a machine many considered to be the best performer during the final year. joined her illustrious sister on the scrap heap. Rumours still abound about possible rescue attempts for the other locos but it seems clear that time is quickly running out. Meanwhile Nos.55004/~/11/13/15/16/17/21/22 await their fate.
The monthly meetings of the DPS (Doncaster Area) are now to be held on the last Thursday of the month at the 'Three Horseshoes', a Wards house. This is located just over North Bridge, on the Bentley roundabout: start time 19-30 hours.

COMPETITION No.31

 First prize 5,second prize 3.third prize 2.Entries should reach the Editor by November 20th.Don't forget, you can still win a prize even If you do not have an all-correct entry.

Compiled by Peter Wesley, this brain teaser can be solved by combining deduction, analysis and sheer persistence (this should exclude most of the members anyway).

 The essential facts are as follows :

1 - There is a row of 5 houses, each with a front door of a different colour and inhabited by men who work for different railway companies, with different pets and different drinking habits. Each man smokes a different pipe tobacco.

PENNINE OBSERVERS NOTES

 EASTERN REGION
The second week in August was an amazing week for admirers of the superb Class 50s in the Sheffield area as the following notes will show. The fun started on Saturday 7th when 50035 'ARK ROYAL' worked the 13-35 Paignton-Sheffield relief, returning ecs. Then from Monday to Thursday the 09-05 Plymouth-York relief produced a 'Hoover' in the shape of 50019 'RAMILLIES' on Monday, before 50030 'REPULSE' took over the working for the rest of the period, each day the loco returning with the ecs.. By Friday, word had got round and the hordes of enthusiasts were disappointed as 46016 appeared on the train. Since then, the Plymouth-York service has reverted to more conventional haulage, the only other 'Hoover' noted in service being 50003 'TEMERAIRE' which worked the 07-01 Bristol-Leeds and 12-37 Leeds-Cardiff on 18th.August.During August two Class 50s were towed to Doncaster Works,50018 'RESOLUTION' for refurbishing, and 50044 'EXETER* with severe collision damage. In the other direction 50025 'INVINCIBLE' returned to the Western after refurbishing on a freight working. Prior to this, on 27th.July,50026 *INDOMITABLE' entered the Works, arriving light engine from Leeds after working the 07-01 Bristol-Leeds.
The Sheffield area holiday trains have again provided an interesting variety of motive power. On 31st.July,25072 worked the 08-57 Sheffield-Llandudno to Huddersfield Instead of the usual Class 31,the 'Rat' running light to Healey Mills with 47277 taking the return working from Huddersfield to Sheffield. Class 40,40104 had taken the main train (Leeds-Llandudno) forward in the morning, but the train (Llandudno-York) returned behind 40030.Class 31s have been the rule for the most part on the Scarborough and Skegness trains, although 37228 worked the Sheffield-Scarborough for a week from Monday 2nd.August due to the strengthening of the train. The Blackpool train has mostly been worked by Class 37s,with 37215 taking the penultimate train on August 28th.
Despite earlier fears, Class 40s have again been active In the West Yorkshire area, the Leeds, York-Llandudno workings being particular favourites. Locos noted on these services have Included 40030/077/099/128/169/177/185.The Leeds/Hull-Paignton overnight on 7th.August had 31205/208 on the Hull portion and 47202 on the Leeds. The full train was taken by 40152 from Doncaster to Sheffield, from where 45019 took over.
The Newcastle/Scarborough/York-Liverpool *PENNINE' service, although rostered for ETH Class 47s,has seen a marked drop in the appearances of these locos during the Summer. Noted on such services recently have been 40006/056/099/195,45o04/056/062/064. 46009/023,47192/228/339/367.
Although the remaining Class 46s are listed for early withdrawal they still make regular appearances on overnight ECM1,.services,recent performers have Included 46010/027/0 32/037/O49/056.During the early hours of August 7th. the previous evening's 19-25 Aberdeen-Kings Cross was delayed at Doncaster whilst the train was searched for a bomb. The train engine was 46037.On 20th.August the 21-23 Bradford-Kings Cross(lA41) was headed by 31242/268,whilst the 20-00 Kings Cross-Aberdeen (1S60) was graced with the presence of 40081.Performers on the new, exclusive *Nightrider' service have included 47403 'THE GEORDIE',47404 1HADRIAN',47448,and, 47455.
On July 30th,37209 towed 03112 from Doncaster to Hull Botanic Gardens, the 03 being in ex-works condition, but despite this, Hull station pilot duties, normally the preserve of the 038 was worked in August by 08777.Class 47,47089 'AMAZON' was stabled at Botanic Gardens over the weekend of 20th.August,whilst at Scarborough on Sunday 21st. August were pilots 03089,08540.Plus 31405,45017/026/046,47278,and LMS 5305 on the Scarborough Spa Express.
During late August, HST availability on the ECML slumped to an all-time low with numerous power cars dumped at Neville Hill awaiting repairs. As a result, several semi-fast services have reverted to loco-hauled workings. On Sunday 29th.August,the 17-30 Kings Cross-Newcastle was formed of a smart rake of Western Region Mk IIE coaches headed by 47565(LE). Another Landore engine,47501 worked the 17-57 York-Kings Cross on 31st.August.
Also during August. the North York Moors Railway experienced a loco shortage which was partly solved by the hiring of Thornaby based 31289.After failing on the 10-20 Pickering-Grosmont the loco was replaced by 31134 on'16th.August.With the arrival of the DPS Deltics, the situation has eased somewhat and the 31s are back at Thornaby.
Class 31s 31406 and 31409,the latter complete with white stripe waistband were working the Cleethorpes-Newark Northgate trains in mid-August.
The Sundays 08-45 Chesterfield-Scarborough, a Barrow Hill Class 47 roster provided some Interesting workings. On 8th.August 47307 worked the train, and 47319 on 5th.September.
The Bank Holiday period saw plenty of rare events. On 31st.August 37171 worked a Hull-Sheffield 'Milk Cup Footex, whilst the day before,47236 failed at Skegness with an ADEX from Llandudno. A brace of 25s,25193/195 dragged the stricken 47 and Its train on the return journey. On 2nd.September the 09-50 Newcastle-Poole was heavily delayed and a train was run In Its path from Sheffield to Derby,8 vehicles hauled by 31119.At Derby passengers were transferred to a Tyseley-based DMU set which ran to Basingstoke, whilst ~1119 returned with the ecs. to Nunnery. On 31st.August 25145 hauled a Nottingham-Skegness relief, whilst on 4th.September 37228 worked the 08-23 York-Tenby.
The latest Class 50 to enter Doncaster Works is 50007 which worked north on 10th.September with the 07-01 Bristol-Leeds. On 11th.September Sheffield's Tinsley depot surprisingly turned out 2 Class 20s to work the 07-32 service to Skegness. Locomotives concerned were 20105/106.On the same day, on the ECML,46031 worked the 20-00 Kings Cross~ Aberdeen as far as Peterborough, where recently renumbered 47299 took over to Doncaster. The train was taken forward by 47223.
Perhaps the highlight during the period covered by these notes came on 2nd.September when "02 worked the 15-10 Sheffield-St, Pancras throughout, and returned with the 19-24 St. Pancras-Sheffield,.
On 1st.September the 09-25,Bradford-Scarborough hauled by 31411 failed at Strensall, just beyond York. After a long delay 37061 arrived from York and pushed the train to Malton where passengers were detrained and transferred to the following 09-05 Liverpool-Scarborough hauled by 47531.

LONDON MIDLAND REGION
Despite being booked for Class 47s,the Manchester-North Wales service is still a happy hunting ground for the Class 40s which continue to attract enthusiasts to the area. On 24th.July 40135 worked the 09-45 Manchester-Bangor,40104 the 11-57 BangorManchester.40104 should have returned with the 15-45 to Bangor, but instead 25117 was provided. The duty proved too much and it expired south of Warrington and 40170 performed the rescue act. On 31st.JulY the 09-45 Manchester-Bangor produced 40004,the 10-45 to Holyhead was 40124,whilst on the 7th.August the 15-17 Holyhead-Manchester produced 40192.

On 24th.August 25254/289 were attached to 86256 on an unidentified southbound working at Preston, due to an overhead fault between Preston and Crewe.

The SYR 'Galloway Ranger' railtour on 19th.June from Birmingham to Stranraer was hauled by 20180/196 from Birmingham to Leeds where 37283 took over for the thrash over the Settle & Carlisle. At Carlisle the requested motive power (in the shape of 40150) had been used on the 10-00 Carlisle-Leeds and the replacement 47434 was soundly rejected by the organisers.37283 worked through to Stranraer where, in teeming rain,25311 shunt released the loco. The 37 then worked back to Ayr where the promised 'Whistler' was waiting-40013 taking the train to Carlisle, where 37259  took over for another thrash on the S & C to Leeds before the same pair of 'Choppers' returned the train to Birmingham.

Class 405 (4-SUB) EMU No.4732 was noted in early August In immaculate ex-works condition-it has been repainted in pre-British Railways Southern livery. Several of these units can now be seen In scrapyards on the eastern approaches to Sheffield. Also sporting a revised livery is 33101 which was seen at Basingstoke on 5th.August,the *Crompton' having 'Finsbury Park' style white window surrounds. The same day the 06-45 Weymouth Quay-Waterloo was noted at Basingstoke behind 73124.Later that day 33106 threaded its way through the busy streets of Weymouth before working the 15-30 Weymouth Quay-Waterloo to Bournemouth from where 73112 took over to Waterloo.

50022 (1A57 07.50 Oxford-Paddington).
Later that morning 50003 'TEMERAIRE' worked the 10.42 Paddington-Penzance service, which runs as a relief to the "Cornish Riviera" HST, and both trains were full and standing well before departure. A few hours later at Exeter St. Davids 45057 was attached to the 11-25 Paddington-Plymouth H3T (Power Cars W43042/43) for the assault of the South Devon banks. The 45 also took the return working with the same HST set from Plymouth. class 50,50017 'ROYAL OAK' worked the 16-45 Plymouth-Penzance local arriving just in time to see 50002 *SUPERB' make a spectacular departure on a GPO train.

SCOTTISH REGION
Pride of place of the various Class 40 workings listed in this issue must surely go to 40167 which on 26th.July worked the 06-15 Inverness-Wick due to the non availability of other locos on Inverness MPD. All workings on the Far North lines are rostered for headlamp and radio fitted Class 37s and consequently workings by the sturdy Class 26s are now rare. On 4th.August the 06-15 Inverness-Wick/Thurso was double-headed by 37017/262 to enable the Georgemas Jcn. based Thurso branch engine to be changed. This engine,37035, returned piloting 37114 on the 11-50 Wick-Inverness (37035 has since arrived at Doncaster Works). For the time being at least, the Kyle line still echoes to the powerful exhaust of the Class 26s.Performers noted on 2 days in early August included 26034/43/45/46.The remaining Inverness based 26s are working duties on the Aberdeen line and during the same period 26021/24/43 performed on these duties.
On 2nd.August the 23~05 Edinburgh-Inverness was worked throughout by 26029/40, suffering a long delay at Perth awaiting the Glasgow portion hauled by 47209,the engine experiencing difficulties just before departure. On 17th.August 47120 on the 23-50 Inverness-Glasgow/Edinburgh failed at Newtonmore and after a long delay was pushed by 37011 to Dalwhinnie where the 37 dumped the 'Duff' and worked the train forward.
On 21st.August the 12-25 Oban-Glasgow was double-headed by 37085/192 to Taynuilt where some Highland games were taking place. Several coaches were detached with 37085 working the train forward to Glasgow. On the same day the 12-55 Glasgow-Oban and 1758 return was worked by 37014.

Scotland Trip July 1982
by Mike and Kevin Bloomer

 Because of the threatened strike by ASLEF drivers at the beginning of July and the subsequent cancellation of the Pennine Scotland week-end visit, Kevin and I decided to go it alone and flew up to Glasgow from East Midlands Airport on Friday, 2nd. July at 07. 45 arriving at 08.50 which just allowed us sufficient time to have breakfast en route, that's got to be better than your average Journey Shrinker behind a 'Flying Banana-Rama'. We had three hours to kill before collecting our Hire Car at mid-day, so we travelled into Glasgow on the Airport coach and spent our time at Central and Queen Street Stations where we saw the following. Friday, 2nd July Glasgow Central:- 37145, 81001, 86031/220/237, 33 DMU's and 15 Emu's. Glasgow Queen Street:- 27204/206, 37085 carrying Highland Terrier transfers on each side of the loco, 47119/410/701/704/712, the 10.38 Glasgow - Perth, which is used as the St. Rollox works Test Train, was double headed by 27032 and 27004 - ex works, additional power from the rear was provided by 26035, all three locos were working, 6 DMU's were also sighted.
After returning to the Airport and collecting our car, we set off for the west coast in search of seven 08's all allocated to Ayr and found the first one at Irvine Station - 08449 and 12 DY1Uls. Passing through Ayr docks, we sighted 08430, 27210 and at Falkland Junction 08292 (TO) 08446/476, 27103, also stored there were the following withdrawn DY1Uls 50803/936, 51018/22132/33, 51474/76/79180/81, 59392193/94, 59406.
Ayr Depot:- 08345/4331448, 20002/045/1021118/146/156/184, 25240, 27028 and 25 DMU's. At Ayr station, 25027 passed through on freight and 12 DMU's were in the stabling point. Still requiring one more shunter to clear the seven from Ayr, we headed north to Ardrossan Harbour but it was nowhere to be found although we did see 08449 parked in the station which we had copped earlier at Irvine. In a last ditched effort to find this elusive loco we climbed the stairs of the signal box in the harbour and asked if they had any idea as to its whereabouts - we were given numerous alternatives which eventually were dwindled down to the BSC. Plant at Hunterston and that's where we eventually found it perched high up on the embankment to the works 08344. Feeling rather pleased with ourselves at finding all seven 081s, we made our way eastwards to Edinburgh where we stayed overnight.
Saturday, 3rd. July Haymarket Depot:- 08718/881, 20027/137/207/216/225/227,25230, 26007/ 014/026/033, 27017/037, 370511191, 40068/191t 45051, 46021/029, 47002/ 403 The Geordie, 47704/707/708/710. 47702 worked the 10. 00 Edinburgh to Glasgow Push/Full service and 16 DMU's were on shed including single car 55000. Motherwell Station:~ 08312/319/723, 86206 hauling Euston - bound express 2 EMU sets 303027/054.
Motherwell Depot:- 08192/321/326/343/437/720/726/730/882, 20036/114/ 1179 25247, 26023~ 27023/024/029/208, 37056/125/139/145/149/150/155/253 47001/109/552/578. 08's 192/730/882 had just returned on shed from duties at Mossend Yard which saved us a journey because we needed two of them. 86256 Pebble Mill and 313204 passed by the depot. A point worth noting on future visits to Motherwell Depot is that locos are stored in the Wagon Repair Shop at week-ends which is to the left of the main shed as you go in. The following eight locos were noted in there:- 08421/515 (AB). 20040/063/081/121/126, 37133. We both copped the shunter from Aberdeen. Anyone visiting the depot should ask the Running Foreman for permission to look in this shop as it is usually kept locked by the watchman who has an office inside.
Hamilton Depot:- Only 11 DMU's on shed,303034/063, 314205 passing through Hamilton West Station. This depot was due to close in May but has been given a temporary reprieve, possibly until September.

In spite of achieving the almost impossible in getting round this shed we still needed three 08's allocated to DT and were told that one was at Falkirk but that turned out to be a wasted journey, so we moved on to Thornton Junction where we found two of them.
Thornton Junction:- 08341/441, 20085/201/206/219/221/222-my last Class 20, what a trip this was turning out to be, 25109/2271228 and 13 DMU's including 55000 which we had seen on Haymarket on Saturday. Our efforts to find Comrie Colliery were well and truly rewarded, not only did we clear our DT 08's in 08425, but also in the same shed were Scottish North Area Saddle Tank 0-6-0 NCB.

None of the Staff on duty at the colliery were able to give us anymore information as to whether any of them were ex B.R. stock, but if any of the membership has any knowledge as to their history, I shall be very interested to hear from them. just for the record, some clever dick of a security officer locked us in, we almost considered doing an Evel. Knievel over the main gate but decided against it. We found him eventually - in the Bath House.
