There was a batch of NE 37's that had oval buffers fitted, probably for a specific working. The earliest I've got photos of them fitted is 1969. These are the ones I've found so fitted, in photos up to now. D6755 (in green), 6761(in green) , D6767 (in green), 6770, 6771, 6773, 6774, 37072, 37074, 37079.

Absolutely stunning Peak collection Dave

 

J2102 - afraid that's D137 The Cheshire Regiment not D67

Hi, Dave. A great set of photos of Nottingham Midland. The 45's make a powerful sight, and were such an integral part of the Midland Mainline for many years. The photos help to keep the memories alive.

 

With warmest regards,

 

Rob.

Looks like the Nottingham ones were taken during re-signalling; a lot of bright shiny colour lights combined with the sad sight of armless semaphore structures and redundant signalboxes. Sad but ever so important time capsules. :umbrage:

It never ceases to surprise me how grubby things looked in those days, and I can still remember the revelation as famous London buildings were cleaned to reveal their original colours from what must have the late 70s onwards.

 

Great photos as always.

Nottingham Midland station today in 1970 and 1971 with typical motive power of the period.

 

Neither Dad nor I took photos at big stations very often, usually only when we were actually travelling by train.  These were all taken by Dad, looking at the dates I think he would have been dropping me off at the station when I was returning to Manchester, or else when he was picking me up.  Where he lived then was quite difficult to reach by bus at some times of day.

 

It's worth looking at the detail differences between the locos.

Seeing those Rail 150 pics reminds me I have some super8 cine film that would be better off on dvd; can anyone recommend a quality transfer company?

 

Sorry for thread hijack David, so I anyone with any recommendations based on personal use could PM me, so I don't get into more trouble for hijacking, I'd be really grateful.

 

Rgds,

 

Andy.

 

Sorry again David.

Hi, Dave. Excellent photos of Rail 150. It was such a great event which we will not see again in our lifetimes.

There are more great photos of the L.T.&S.R. A much underrated railway. I particularly like seeing Waverley. I haven't seen many photos of her before.

 

With warmest regards,

 

Rob.
