Then the class 47s and 50s were next. A solemn line of class 50s in "modern" liveries stood against the estuary at Laira, again, whilst fellow locos raced by on class one services. Crewe was another mass graveyard also containing older AC electric locos for the smelting pot.
It must make me sound old, but here we are now seeing second generation DMUs, HSTs and locos (class 56/60s) being scrapped. The class 142s or Skippers were less than welcome additions to the Cornish fleet in 1985. The bus seats were hard and fixed wheels caused torturous squealing as the units ran on the branchline's tight curves. They were not to last though. Here are some pictures to illustrate the piece.
Kind regards, Craig. Many thanks to you Craig.
