Class 37 37502 heads south with tanker train from Kingmoor New Yard on 14 August 1992 and approaches Port Carlisle Junction where the Waverley line left the WCML. Built as D6782 by Robert Stephenson & Hawthorn Ltd 29 November 1962, Works Number EE/RSH3209/8328 and allocated to Hull Dairycoates, it was renumbered under TOPS as 37082, then 37502 in 1985 before finally being renumbered as 37602 in 1995. It is currently in service with DRS locomotives but was deregistered XHHP in January 2020

37417 Carne Point 1991 by Richard Davies

 

37 Interloper

 


Sorry, but that’s not Carne Point. The caption for this image on Flickr correctly states:

“37417 sets back its load of empty CDAs from Carne Point into the Rocks sidings. The roof of Goonbarrow Junction signal box is just visible in the background.”
Carne Point is on the Fowey river and is where china clay is loaded onto ships for export.

On 7th October 2021 Rail Operations Group 37510 Orion at Ravensthorpe with TransPennine Express (TPE) Nova 3 set TP08 in tow, working 5E16, Longsight to Scarborough Traction Maintenance Depot.

Here's a view of the non-Driving Trailer end of TP08 (coach 11508) in case the weathered detail, normally hidden by the coupled class 68, is of future use to anyone wanting to weather their forthcoming @Accurascale Fran  TPE Mark 5.

What are the boxes on either side of the end, please? They look like the anti-override blocks the Great Central experimented with, but I'm sure they aren't.

 

 

The anti override blocks would be lower I expect if they were there, AFAIK they need to correspond with the block on the opposing stock. Note on the driving end has its blocks directly above the buffers which is where they are on most things.

Any reason why the 37 is pulling the TPE by the DVT - connection issues at the other end?

The 37 can't operate with the set, it is just pulling it to Scarborough where it needed to be.

I can't remember where the train originated but I do remember it was a Didcot driver bringing it into Padd, we used to secondman him on the light engine move down to Old Oak so he could have his break.

Passing northbound on the west coast main line at Nettle Hill, an old train spotting haunt of mine back in the late seventies, on Friday evening around half five I took my son there and what should pass but a Europhoenix 37, this is my son's photo, his phone is better than mine!

The last pic actually has 2x 37's, 2x 08's, & a 31 in it, who would have believed that would happen in Great Yarmouth !!

Phil.
