This volume illustrates the British Rail scene in 1984 & 1985. Back then the 1955 Modernisation Plan had eliminated steam locomotives from the system, prototype diesel and electric locomotives had come and gone as had most of the first generation of diesels such as Warships, Hymeks, Class 40s and several other types. A few had survived, Peaks and Class 31s being amongst them.


Section 1:- Westbury area 9/3/84. The Westbury - Warminster line is the scene for the heavy Foster-Yeoman stone trains, with Class 56 pulling and banking on occasions. Other types include double-headed 37’s, 45 147 (pre-Eccles) and 47’s.

Section 2:- A day a Warrington 14/3/84. A very busy centre on the main London to Glasgow route featuring Classes 25, 37, 40, 45, 47 and 86.

Section 3:- Toton and Worksop on 12th & 13th May 1984. These hubs of freight operation provided spectacular ballast and coal trains for dispersal throughout the Midlands. Classes 31, 37, 47, 56 & 58 provide the power.

Section 4:- A day at Carlisle 3/5/85. Even then this very busy centre sported a wide variety of diesel and electric power. Many were captured here including a glimpse of the APT and Classes 26, 27, 37 and 81.

Section 5:- The West Country 25/5/85. A surprisingly busy part of the network with many cross-country workings. Scenes from Tiverton, Exeter, Exminster, Starcross, Dawlish and Teignmouth feature Classes 45, 47, 50(Hoovers) and HSTs.

Dawlish and Teignmouth feature Classes 45, 47, 50(Hoovers) and HSTs.

Section 6:- Retford and Worksop 3/10/85. More MGR and coal traffic at these extremely heavily worked locations. Class 56 and 58 as well as Class 20s provide the power.

Section 7:- Exminster and Truro 25/10/85. Main line passenger workings along this ex-GWR line with 47s, 50s and HSTs featured.
