Class 40 Pics and detail differences in the class.


Recommended Posts

So two class 40s to add to the 56, double headed light engine 88s on test, 2 class 90 light engines on test, the 88 on the Tesco, a Royal 67 (right as they announced the Prince's passing no less) , two GBRF 92s and a class 73/9.

 

Quite a bumper day today for locos at the station.

It obviously wasn't successful as it appears to have dumped it all in the 4 foot.

Another theory that didn't hold water....

This was the other end of the loco and another great photo by Martyn Hilbert. The loco was repaired and ran for about 4 -5 years before heading to the scrap yard. The connecting doors were plated over during the repairs and you could tell which Class 40 it was providing of course it was running No2 first.

Is that a rare sighting of a Royal Train comms cable in place?

Most evidence is usually just the circular blanking plate on the loco front.

Also just noticed the stuck-on label in place of the 4th blind!

Now you mention I'm pretty sure it is, yes - there is a very nice photo f D371 at Coventry on a Royal working in one of the Ian Allen colour portfolio books.
