And another stupid headlight on 059!

The first owner of 25057 fitted headlights to it and for some reason cut all the wiring to the headcode boxes.

I was heavily involved with north Norfolk railway when it was bought from him. I took great delight of smashing the headlight boxes off the loco ( wasn't too hard as he had only fixed them with a few pop rivets ) and presenting him with them as a souvenir!

I had previously placed a ban on it being used at night as its only frontal illumination was headlights which were too bright and dangerous

Something a little different about this pic of 25075 at Edinburgh Waverley.

 

First pic shows the loco arriving at Waverley and the second shows the loco backing onto the coaches forming a service to Dundee. Unusual as this service was normally booked for a class 27.

 

Also, 25075 was 1 of only 3 25/1s which received over-sized body-side numbers. The others 2 were 25062 and 25066.

Some of mine from the early seventies. I think I must have got bored with 3/4 views in broad daylight, so apologies in advance for some of them.....
