Seeing the Class 50s takes me back to the 1970s when, double headed, they worked the west coast expresses before the section north of Crewe was electrified.

Somewhere I still have the Ian Allan combined version with them all underlined!

Managed to see all the Deltics too on various trips to the Eastern Region.

Thumbs up

Great photos of what doesn't seem so long ago, but in reality is probably 30+ years....a real depot with proper locos - none of this multiple unit crap that seems to dominate the rails these days........
