Recommended Posts

Note on Grid on right,horn grille upside-down in OP's first pic.

A mod I've not seen on a 56 since the blue livery days, because they were deemed too loud!

This thread has brought back some happy memories from my younger days when weekends were free. 

Me and a couple of mate would pick a location,get in the car and hope for the best (we where never disapointed).

 

here's a few of 56's on different sheds (no permits needed,we were that regular)

Retford, June 1983, doing what they were designed for, power station coal.

I do recall being impressed by the driving skills as the loaded trains came through the dip under the ECML - must be a tricky location to avoid snatching at the couplings. Any drivers care to comment?
