WESTERNS IN CORNWALL
by Paul Slater
A five-day break in Cornwall in June 1974 was the first of several
railway based holidays which over the years I have taken in various
parts of the British Isles. I had three aims in particular on my
Cornish trip: to see something of Cornwall itself, its towns and
countryside and coastal scenery; to visit some of the prehistoric
sites in the county; and to photograph some of the class 52 diesel
hydraulic locomotives at work on the railways of the West Country.
I travelled as far as Exeter on the Tuesday behind a 47 on the 12.30
Paddington-Paignton, accompanying my sister-in-law who was going to
visit relatives in Devon. We parted at Exeter, and I travelled on
alone, at first behind another 47 on the 13.30 Paddington-Penzance,
and then - my first 52 haulage on this trip - behind D1036 'Western
Emperor" on the 17.35 Plymouth-Penzance stopping train. The train
was full, and I had to stand; but it was a warm, sunny evening, and
I enjoyed standing by an open window and watching "Western Emperor"
winding it's way out of Plymouth and over the Saltash Bridge and on
into Cornwall, through attractive scenery and past masses of
rhododendrons in flower. It was my first visit to Cornwall since a
family holiday there in 1959, and the first time that I had ever
entered the county by train.
I alighted at Liskeard, where I had arranged to stay two nights.
Next morning, the warm sun shining again, 1 photographed D1006
'Western Stalwart" arriving at Liskeard with the 8:42
Plymouth-Penzance as I waited for the Looe branch train. I rode down
to Looe and had a brief swim in a very chilly sea, then returned to
Liskeard, getting several photographs of the branch train. That
afternoon, as the fine weather broke, I walked up on to the fringes
of Bodmin Moor to see the notable pre-historic dolmen known as
On the Thursday I rode westwards from Looe on the 8:42 from
Plymouth, which this time was headed by a 45. 1 enjoyed the ride
down the length of Cornwall, arriving in Penzance in time for lunch.
Here I Was booked for two nights in a hotel only a few yards from
the station. That afternoon, by a combination of buses and walking,
I visited Newlyn, Mousehole, Lamorna Cove and the Merry Maidens
stone circle. Next morning I was pleased to be able to photograph
three 52s together in Penzance station. D1058 'Western Nobleman" was
on the Fridays only 10:00 to Paddington, D1051 'Western Ambassador"
headed the 10:25 "Cornishman" to Bradford, and a third 52 was ready
with the 11,00 "Cornish Riviera" to Paddington.
I remembered my previous holiday in Cornwall., and my trainspotting
sessions before breakfast on Penzance station. Fifteen years old
then, I was making my first attempts at railway photography. Two of
them, in bright early morning sunshine, came out well. The first of
the Western Region's diesel- hydraulics, numbered in the D600 and
D6300 series, were starting to appear on the Cornish lines in 1959,
but my two best pictures were both of steam locomotives: 6826
"Nannerth Grange" on the 7.55 to Swansea and 5058 "Earl of
Clancarty" backing out with the empty stock of an overnight train
~ Fifteen years later, in 1974, 1 walked out along the shore
eastwards from Penzance, photographing first the "Cornishman"
passing Penzance engine-shed, them the famous island of St.
Michael's Mount just offshore, and them the 'Cornish Riviera"
passing the site of Marazion station. Also at Marazion I snapped the
8.42 from Plymouth, hauled by a 50. 1 returned to Penzance for lunch
and that afternoon on the moors north-west of the town, saw the old
Ding Dong tin mine and three ancient sites: Lanyon Quoit, the
Men-an-Tol holed stone and the Men Scryfa Early Christian inscribed
Next morning it was time to leave after my brief visit to Cornwall.
I had succeeded in my three aims, and had enjoyed my holiday. As a
final bonus, I had 52 haulage all the way back from Penzance to
SHED BASHING IN THE 60's
by Jack Davis
Mention in the March edition of 'Trans Pennine' of a forthcoming
visit to Frodingham and Immingham Depots, prompted me to dig out an
old note book and look up such a visit undertaken almost a quarter
of a century ago.
The date was August 4th 1963 (Bank Holiday Monday) and as I remember
took place in the standard Bank Holiday weather; dull, cold and wet
for most of the day. In fact, it wasn't until we were well on the
way home, at Thrumpton G.C., that any attempt was made to take
It is interesting to look back and see just how much steam was still
in operation in Lincolnshire and how it was still relied upon for
the heavy freight.
Immingham had present that day 27 Consolidated's, (2 x 81's, 2
Robinson O4s and 23 Austerities), no fewer than 9 standard 9F's and
8 Britannia's from a total of 66 locos, the remainder being mostly
B1s. There were just 10 diesels, No's 12126/33, D2022, D2207,
D361214, D3154/7, D4088 and D6749. The standard 9's were
The most remarkable item was the Britannias, for after 12 years
service all over the system, there were 8 of the class assembled
that day, in consecutive order from 70035 to 70042! Just how this
had been managed I can't imagine although I must admit that all 8
had spent a good deal of their time in East Anglia.
It also underlines the importance which was still attached to the
fish traffic from Grimsby for such a large number of Pacifics to be
maintained here, for the amount of passenger work generated in the
area could be easily handled by the B1s.
Frodingham presented much the same picture except that the 2-8-0's
almost completely dominated the scene. Apart from 5 diesels, No's
D3611/38/47, D1532 and D5849 and 4 K1 2-6-0's No's 62013/6/33/5,
there was a motley collection of Austerity's, O2's and the venerable
O4's, still answering the call of duty although by this time held
together by a combination of grease and sludge, wire, string and
sacking and looking as though it might wheeze through another 50
years if need be.
Lincoln held a wider selection, in fact even though there was only
two dozen locos on shed, it was almost an Aladdin's cave after what
we had met up with up to now and all worth listing, as follows:-
D4014, D5633, D5811, D5860, D8067, B1s Nos.
61006/58/89/107/162/223/384, O1's Nos. 63589/96, Austerity's Nos.
90149/501, IVATT 4MT 2-6-0 Nos. 43086/149, 4F No. 44244, 8F No.
48151, BR Standard 4 No. 75064 and Star of the Show, B.R. Standard 5
No. 73134, Caprotti Fitted.
By the time we reached Retford, it was early evening and the weather
had improved enough to bring out the old magic box and make up for
lost time photographing the assembled army of K1s, O1's, O2s, O4s
and Austerity's which were being prepared for the following days
The process of fire-raising was being accompanied by clouds of
thick, sulphur laden, yellow smoke which drifted away towards the
terrace of houses overlooking the east end of the shed yard; life
must have been almost intolerable for their tenants, with the
process being repeated all round the clock.
One interesting fact, that evening was the absence of any J11 "Pom
Poms". Thrumpton J11s were well enough performers on excursion
traffic to the East Coast, in fact at one time they earned
themselves the nickname of 'Thrumpton Pacifics' so presumably they
were all out doing their pacifying with the Bank Holiday traffic.
Over the way, the GNR. shed was also preparing for the following
days work with about a score of steam locos, equally divided between
B1s and O4s with one or two 250 diesels thrown in for good measure.
The main line was also busy and a short stay by the lineside
produced no steam, but DP2, D190, D365, D1503/6, D5683, D5824/39/61
and D6743. Not one Deltic, still, we had logged about two hundred
locos in the day and Deltic mania was a long way in the future, so
we were quite happy with the day's haul as we headed off into the
ALL OUR YESTERDAYS SIGHTINGS FROM 20 YEARS AGO
LONDON MIDLAND REGION
.Warship" diesel No. D840 worked through Bescot on August 15th with
a train, of Oil Tankers, possibly deputising for a '.'Hymek" type 3
loco. It is possible it was employed on crew training duties from
Tyseley depot which had received Nos. D833 and D336 at least for
this purpose at the beginning of August. The LMR and WR plan to
replace Brush Type 4 Locos on Paddington - Birmingham New Street
services with "Warships" before the end of the year.
The prototype LMR 25KV Electric Loco No. E2001, has been reported to
have been removed from Rugby Testing Station for scrap.
An unusual visitor to the Midland Main Line on August 10th was"
Black 5 4-6-0 No. 44851 which powered the 08 35 Manchester - St.
Pancras as far as Derby, following a diesel failure at Manchester.
The loco worked back to Manchester light.
At Crewe works at the end of August were SR Electro-Diesels Nos.
E6101 in the paint shop, and E6102-9 in various stages of rebuilding
in the old erecting shop.
The first of the new EE 2750 hp. Type 4s, D400, was noted on the
West Coast Main Line on an empty oil train near Lancaster on
September 13th, on crew training.
The Settle and Carlisle line still sees considerable freight
traffic, particularly overnight. On the night of September 12/13th,
a total of 33 trains were noted at Garsdale Junction with only 11 of
these diesel-hauled. Among the steam locos spotted were "Jubilee"
No. 45593 and six "Britannia" Pacifics, Nos. 70011/22/4/32/45/9.
Further south on the Midland, "Britannia" Pacific No. 70013 was at
Derby works Open Day on August 25th, and on August 31st the 14.00
Manchester - Nottingham was hauled throughout by Stanier Black 5 No.
45284, returning with the 16.45 from Nottingham.
Nottingham Victoria Station was closed on September 2nd and the
Rugby-Nottingham diesel service now uses Nottingham Arkwright
A most unusual working on the Great Eastern Main Line on July 19th
was "Hymek" Type 3 D7035 which worked a car train from Hinksey
through Ipswich, destined for Felixstowe Dock.
On August 6th SR Birmingham Type 3 No. D6547 worked an Army Special
throughout from the Southern to Lowestoft.
During September there were four B1s at Low Moor, Nos. 61030,
61306/37/88. At least two were active for No. 61306 worked the 15.17
Bradford-Heysham parcels on September 23rd.
On August 19th the 09.05 Paignton-Leeds worked throughout by
BR/SuIzer Type 4 No. D174.
One of the original "Warship" diesels, No. D602 "Bulldog", was noted
at Cardiff on August 4th, an unusual occurrence as this class is
normally confined to working between Plymouth and Penzance.
At the beginning of August there were no fewer than 170 Steam Locos
awaiting cutting up at Woodham Bros. Scrapyard at Barry Docks, with
70 former GWR. locos and about 29 Ex LMS locos amongst them.
"Hymek" diesels are planned to take over banking duties on Lickey
incline and Bromsgrove has been automated D7011, noted at the end of
On September 6th, NBL "Warship" type 4 No. D833 worked the 07.20
Birmingham-Paddington, replacing a failed "Brush" Type 4. This is
the first reported "Warship" hauled train on the London-Birmingham
service since 1965. The 07.20 failed the following day, this time at
Olton, and EE4 Type 4 D329 was summoned to work the train through to
The August Bank Holiday Weekend brought four excursions to
Eastbourne, including three mystery tours from the WR on August
27th, originating from Bristol, Weston Super Mare and Filton
Junction, worked throughout by brush type 4s No's D1599, D1732 and
D1929. On Bank Holiday Monday an excursion from Rugby travelled via
Brighton to Eastbourne, arriving behind electro diesel No E6034.
On August 3rd, the Waverley Route 09.20 Carlisle-Edinburgh train was
worked throughout by "Britannia" Pacific No 70032, only the second
to be reported instance of a steam hauled Waverley route passenger
train this year. On August 11th, the 17.23 Carlisle-Perth
originating from Euston at 12.10, was worked from Carlisle by
Britannia" Pacific No. 70051.

Rumours are still rife that all the class 45s will be withdrawn at
the end of the Summer timetable; that remains to be seen but
meanwhile members of the class are still seeing active service
during their Indian Summer.

The new Nottingham-Blackpool "sprinter" diagrams have seen a decided
absence of the new units since the first few days of the new
timetable, locos and Mark 1 stock being a distinct improvement. The
following are a few of the locos seen on these workings:
The 11.20 Blackpool-Nottingham. 47460 on 23rd May, 47010 on 20th

On 21st June 45141 through Cottingham on a Derby and
A rare "Crickex" working occurred on 11th July when 47454 headed a
Leeds-KX excursion for the Benson and Hedges cricket final at lords
between Yorkshire and Northants. 26th July found 37209 hauling a
failed HST on the 08.20 Hull-XX, seen through Doncaster. Due to DMU
failures, several services have been loco hauled into Hull recently
with 47316 seen on one such working on 6th August, 47303 on 27th
August and 31459 on 3rd September. Noted at Botanic Gardens on 23rd
August were 37117 and 37225 whilst on 15th September 47644 was noted
at Hull paragon.
33209 worked the 16.18 Exeter-Waterloo into Salisbury to be replaced
by 50018 on 4th July. The 33 retired to the stabling point with
sisters 205/203, the later loco being greeted with much enthusiasm
by a certain membership secretary as it had managed to avoid him for
more years than he cares to remember! Salisbury is something of a
Mecca for enthusiasts at the moment with frequent services provided
by two popular classes of loco which sadly are under threat. During
a week of brilliant sunshine the following were
33201/3/5/9/12, 50004/7/8/12/15/16/18/20/27/33-5/36/42/48. 59001 on
11th July and 59002 the following day were noted on stone trains
passing at approx. 19.30 Eastbound.
Members wishing to sample loco hauled travel on the normally EMU
only Waterloo-Portsmouth line are advised to sample the delights of
a class 50 on the 09.25 Waterloo-Portsmouth (weekday) or the 15.30
The former was hauled by 50027 on May 21st, 50015 on 6th July, 50033
on 8th July, 50034 the following day. The latter service was worked
by 50004 on 6th July. But hurry, offer only while stocks last, for
it seems the class has fallen out of favour with BR, and already
down to 48 members the future does not look good.
Noted at Tonbridge on 17th July was 47609 on the 17.54
Dover-Manchester. The next day 33202/053 headed a freight whilst
47439 worked the 07.40 Manchester-Dover, seen at Ashford. Noted at
