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

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 All were withdrawn from the network by 1987.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D5054 was built in 1959, renumbered to 24 054 in 1974 and withdrawn the following year.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Another 1961 construction, the Western Region diesel-hydraulics were withdrawn as non-standard in the seventies.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

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.

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

It is Deutsche Bahn logo, their UK operations apparently goes by name DB Cargo UK, although I'm unsure how the DB locomotive ended up in front of passenger train if they are supposed to rail freight company...

And now further digging on the subject: Arriva is the DB subsidiary that operates passenger trains in UK.

Interesting, I was wondering about the DB too.

We have a bizarre situation in UK, the Consrvative government broke up the nationalised British Rail but is content for subsidiaries of overseas state railways to operate.

No, only D832 is Diesel Hydraulic. After the railways were nationalised in 1948, regions of British Rail had a great deal of autonomy and the Western Region decided on hydraulics while the others went for diesel electrics. When traction procurement became more centralised, the hydraulics were doomed as non-standard.

Interesting, I'm aware of the 1500v DC locomotives but not of any others.
