  1. 08717 was Withdrawn from Haymarket 11/1981 and re-instated 04/83 which ties in with :-
  2. I've noticed the same on more than one occasion and we are not in lockdown here (yet)
  3. The Rear Cabinet was added during Dual Brake Conversions.
  4. It's one of the later builds (08705 onwards) it looks like one of the Knorr-Bremse colours. See http://www.scot-rail.co.uk/page/Glasgow+Works The two Shunters at Knorr-Bremse Wolverton Works were 08629 & 08649 which were of the earlier build. So most likely 08730 is the one in your photograph.
  5. Some glaring errors Page 330. "A Bletchley Bound Service pauses at Fenny Compton" and goes on to say "with a Bletchley to Bedford Service" and "Ampthill in the background"
  6. RMweb running noticeably faster this morning presumably due to "search index is currently processing"
  7. I also intend to to develop a Servo Interlocked Lever Frame using the Arduino to do the Interlocking and Drive Servos for the Points, Signals and Interlock Frame. Phase 1 of this is described here: - https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/150296-moretonhampstead-signalling/
  8. It was Dual Braked during 1982. The Loco was stored Unserviceable LO(u) in May 1982 and re-instated LO August 1982 so it's possible the conversion took place during that period.
  9. The Shunter in the upper picture is Vacuum Brake only and the lower picture is Dual Braked (Vacuum and Air) hence the additional cabinet.
  10. I use an Arduino for Signal Interlocking complete with FPL, see: - https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/150296-moretonhampstead-signalling/
  11. I would think this either: (a) A previously "Failed" Locomotive being used on a Bletchley to Oxford Train to work home with a Oxford to Cambridge Train. (b) Having worked a through Cambridge to Oxford Train it worked a "Fill-in" Oxford to Bletchley to Oxford turn. Then returning home with a Oxford to Cambridge Train.
  12. 1E Bletchley had an allocation of Ivatt 4MT 2-6-0's 43000 to 43006 - 1950 to 1953 43017, 43073, 43122 - 1964 to 1965 Both batches worked the Oxford to Cambridge Trains.
  13. 42105 was another Fairburn Tank with an early emblem: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/22869608813/in/photolist-AQUHWe-p7Yzk9-pMoXYc-BAQt7m-MVPHwB-LWM9da-HXYpxn-akBH61-2jhyp4a-MJfsCG-RzApLa-2i5whxx-9PMafp-gQpK9X-AXureo-Srmkco-cNvcdj-2e1mpfp-i26tdw-hwkdB-G6CLBM-bhwNBM-f9PNC3-bCCrSH-25hjR1m-aEZCWT-b78vEz-h38cRe-bpHCQL-aD4oDB-FENhDz-UWzu-aGakiK-2iEjPFj-2i5sQhy-2i5sQhJ-U9rRGC-2i5sQiA-XkJWxW-DzGyD8-24vvLtc-Evg5JU-2i5whFi-2i5vfQk-2i5vfRY-2i5whD9-2i5vfJU-DzzhQz-2i5whJz-2i5vfTg
  14. That explains why she looked so good!
