Not long to go....

Post by Deepol » Mon Aug 16, 2010 8:16 pm

Coronation/ Duchess 46245 CITY OF LONDON taken at Crewe in August 1964 on the 3.50pm to Glasgow. She had literally only weeks to go before she and the other 17 members left were withdrawn en masse as a scheme to send them to the Southern Region to replace Unrebuilt Bulleid Pacifics fell through.

By remarkable coincidence Shane Suggett was there as well and took this nearly exact view as mine! He corrected me on the train-it was actually the 6.15pm to Carlisle. I with some others were waiting for our train to Chester where we were to spend the weekend at the Youth Hostel there as a base for a weekend spotting bash.
