Class 33 on the S&C

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I know the Type 3 (or Class 33) was not a S&C locomotive however I‘m sure that I read a while back that 3 were temporarily transferred as far north as Glasgow shed to cover for failing Class 26 locos.

 

I wondered if they ever ran on the S&C albeit by exception?

Paul, etc. - good question.

 

BUT can I emphasise again - this section is for S&C LAYOUTS only.

 

I will get Andy York to move this thread to the general Settle and Carlisle section which you can find in the Prototype section, Special Intetests, The Settle and Carlisle Route.

 

Jeff

For some info on 33s in Scotland have a look at http://www.scot-rail.co.uk/page/class+33

 

Some of these Scottish tours made their way up via the S&C https://www.sixbellsjunction.co.uk/00s/020518pt.htm

Also 33207 Ran an S&C tourist train both ways 18/6/08, a train I sadly couldnt get on(and no more turns-lack of bookings!) I can't find any DRS turns, they ran once on the Carlisle Newcastle, which I guess includes a litte of the S&C. However DRS 33030 visited KWVR in 2004 so surely headed down Light Engine from Kingmoor? Perhaps they did the odd, unphotographed turn in DRS days, be nice to hear.

But they were very rare indeed.

That would be the one run by West Coast Railway Company (Leeds or maybe York to Carlisle) not in its EWS days I think. I don't know how many such trips they actually ran. I saw one with the 33 on (can't remember what was on the other end) but like you before I could book a trip they'd all been cancelled. Shame.

The class did appear on railtours over the S&C in BR days. The Crompton Crusader in July 1995 was one.

A 33/1 and a 4TC set went to Ayr in the 90s as part of the filming for mission impossible. Not sure what route they took
