Wonderful view of Diesel motive power in the UK, Alan! I am curious about the DB on the red locomotive. Looks like the Deutsche Bahn Logo.
Do you know, are all of these locomotives Diesel Hydraulic?
As you know, most Diesels in North America are Diesel Electric. Super photos as usual! Thanks for sharing!
Kind regards,
Kelly

Great series Alan, especially like the "signal gantry" but all are nicely documented.
I think after their service life in the UK were over some "brothers" were sold to private industries on this side of the channel to do shunting and freight work, especially in the Rotterdam harbour area. I've seen some very similar models. They're always easy to spot because the UK "profile" is slightly smaller than the continental one, so the engines always look a bit small (narrower and lower) in comparison to the train they're pulling.

Our day at the East Lancashire Railway's winter diesel gala started with the 06:02 from Bangor, seen here at Chester where we alighted


A short but very cold wait ensued before our connection to Manchester arrived.


Then a tram to Bury for several rides up and down the line behind vintage diesels. It was part of a route from Manchester which was closed north of Rawtenstall in 1966 following the Beeching report. In 1980 the section from Bury to Rawtenstall was closed and later the Manchester to Bury section became part of the Metrolink tram system.

This is Ramsbottom where trains normally cross. D7629 is one of a class of 327 locomotives built between 1961 and 1967, all were later clssified as class 25 and renumbered as 25xxx. All were withdrawn from the network by 1987.


Showing its later class 47 number, 47 765 has been detached to run round its train at the northern termius of Rawtnstall


98 class 33 examples were built between 1960 and 1962, some lasted on the network until 1998 and three are still certified for main line use by charter train operators.


D5054 was built in 1959, renumbered to 24 054 in 1974 and withdrawn the following year.


Dating from 1961, the class 45 locomotives were a common sight in my home town of York on cross-country services.


D7629 and D5054 at Bury


Another 1961 construction, the Western Region diesel-hydraulics were withdrawn as non-standard in the seventies. D832 is seen here piloting 45 108 at Bury.


The signal gantry


One of the first batch of fifty class 47 locomotives, ultimately 512 were built.


50 015 was in British Railways service from 1968 to 1992.


The least powerful of the locomotives is D9531 at only 650 hp. Many of the envisaged duties of this class disappeared on the BR network a few years after their 1965 introduction. BR started to dispose of them from mid 1968, the entire class had been sold to industry or scrapped by the end of 1970.


End of the day at Bury

Pieter, thanks for sharing these photos of this beautiful little locomotive. Especially like all the detail depicted in photo of the cab! Like the reelection of the gauges in the window glass.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Hey, Joe!
Where have you been. I haven't seem many posts from you recently, but I have not been hre much recently myself. I've had too many other things going on. Thanks for the compliments, but your two photos here a great! Especially like the first with the Mountains as a backdrop! And lots of steam! Hard to believe that in a few months it will have been a year since it came to Ogden!
Thanks for sharing these, and the nice street car shots! Nice work, keep them coming!

Kind regards,

Kelly

the "Beast"





Wheelworks



Hello Doc;
You have some of the most historic, great, perfect shots of the "Big Boy"
I would give anything to have that stand alone shot of it, and you even have one of the "Legend"
the shot of the "King" and the Legend double heading up that mountain grade is as historic as a rail road photo will ever get. That might never happen again, its unbelievable it happened at all!

I was even wondering, now they have the Big Boy if they might just put 844 into a museum. It must cost a ton to keep those 2 running, but than the "PR" UP has gotten out of this is probably priceless

All the Best    Joe

^^ very nice and powerful in the snow, I like how the engine is blowing a cloud of the snow aside due to the speed.


Something a bit more modest:
