Hi, russ p. No, the 155’s are keeping going, it’s the Bridlington, Hull, and York service which is being withdrawn from the timetable change in December. My fault for not having made things a bit clearer. 
 

Regards,

 

 Rob.

Meanwhile the A1079 remains bottlenecked and unlit. Someone should build a line between Hull and York….

Good evening, everyone. Well, for this evening here’s a further photo’ by David Scott on Flickr, and it is of Anlaby Road Junction, on the 21st May, 1978, with 47048, on the Saturday Only Scarborough to London King’s Cross service. This train appears to have finished running by the Summer of 1979 - I have a copy of the WTT.

Cut back to Hull-York only by the look of it, leaving Brid with basically the hourly Scarborough-Hull-Sheffield, mostly class 170s.

I believe the ex second class Pullmans were used as first class coaches in normal service so would actually be slightly inferior to conventional first class coaches as they had 2+2 seating instead of the normal first class 2+1 

The second class Pullman cars by Met Camm had 2+1 seating as built. It was an easy job to turn them into "ordinary" FO stock. 

https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/55591376626903286/

 

The First Class Pullman cars were 1+1 seating layout, with loose armchair seats. Around 1967, the First Class Pullman cars were rebuilt and upseated featuring new seats bolted to the floor, and these seats were subsequently used in Mark 2c and 2d FO stock. Not only did they recline, but they had a degree of fore and aft adjustment as well. 

 

My last job involved looking after some Met Camm Pullmans. Two retained the 1967 fixed seats, but the third was returned to traffic with the loose armchair seating as originally built.

I didn't realise the first class cars had loose seating., imagine that today!  I'd forgotten the second class cars were 2+1 years since I went on the SLOA set

Good evening, everyone. Well, this evening we go to Bridlington in what appears to be the late 1950’s. It’s a photo’, courtesy of  fishermandave89, on Flickr. It’s Bridlington engine shed, and two classes of engine can be spotted - a Black 5, three K3’s. Happy days.

 A very short time scale here, the Train Reporting numbers are three didgets, these were replaced by the present four character headcodes c1961. The engines have Overhead Electric Flashes, I think these came in in 1960. Last K3 withdrawn December 1962.

Another example of how “monochrome” urban areas were in the 1950s.

Good evening, everyone. Firstly, thank you, Railpassion for those photo’s of the completed track and signalling at Bridlington. It looks so different to the old. And thank you, Rob, for the photo’ of 158867 at Hessle, a great three quarter view of the DMU. 
Well, this evening, thanks to a photo’ by fishermandave89, on Flickr, we go back to 1983 and that big reconstruction of bridge 19 adjacent to Bridlington station. Indeed, it was the bridge works which saw the end of platforms 1, 2 and 3.  A class 31 can be seen on what looks like a Mess Van.

Suspect that is the Donny breakdown train, note the 75ton crane behind the bridge.

Good evening, everyone. Thank you, Al Taylor, for the information about yesterday’s photo’. So this evening, courtesy of a further photo’ by fishermandave89, on Flickr, is a photo’ which shows class 31, 31 563, at Bridlington, on the 6th April, 1993. Of course, the track it is seen on is now lifted as part of the rationalisation.

Good evening, everyone.  This evening, courtesy of a further photo’ by fishermandave89, on Flickr, we stay in Bridlington, and look at a train in the now lifted carriage sidings. It shows class 47, 47 975, The Institution Of Civil Engineers, on the 14th November, 1992. The carriages are of interest being the early Mkll’s in Trans Pennine livery.

Morning Rob, the lead loco is one of those fitted with a sandite tank in the boiler compartment and had the horns moved to the deltic esq position for some bridges in West Yorkshire I believe

Good evening, everyone. Thank you, russ p, and Rob. I had a feeling the 37’s indentities would be revealed before very long. But I didn’t know about the history of 37332, the leading engine. It would make a great model, and hopefully it might get modelled by Accurscale before too long.

Well, this evening, we go back to Hull, and on a train to London King’s Cross, thanks to a photo’ by Syd Young on Flickr. It’s a train of Mklld’s with a Mkl catering car, and BG, headed by Deltic, class 55, 55016, The Gordon Highlander, on the 6th August, 1980. The train being 1A04, the 07.00 a.m., from Hull, The Hull Executive.

Good evening, everyone. This evening, thanks to a photo’ by fishermandave89, on Flickr, we go to Buckton, between Bridlington and Filey, back in July, 1979 - most probably a Saturday. We see a seven car DMU climbing the hill to Speeton Summit, with it’s exhausts rasping away. It is formed of a three car Metro Cammell class 111, with RollsRoyce engines, and a four car class 108 Derby Lightweight refurbished set, on it’s way to Scarborough from Hull.
