Captures the scene at Penzance and Marazion today
It is nice to see these units back with us giving passengers a comfortable ride up to 90 m.p.h.
1) 46037 having a change of crew working 1V81 0826 Bradford Interchange-Paignton on Saturday June 25th 1983. Just 1 year later on 16th June 1984 46037 met it's end when a traction motor caught fire whilst ascending the Lickey incline at the head of the summer Saturdays-only 1E64 1037 Penzance-Leeds.
2) 46035 on Saturday 15th March 2003 after arriving with 1Z46 0539 Crewe-Okehampton Railtour 'The Western Quarryman'. 46035 came off at Bristol and was replaced by D1015 'Western Champion'. Sadly 46035's glory days appear to be over as it has been stored in a partially dismantled state at Leeds Midland Road, Crewe Heritage Centre and, latterly, Rowsley depot sidings at Peak Rail, Matlock. This was the first preserved diesel locomotive to work on the national network following the lifting of the ban on such movements by BR.
Guy V Many thanks indeed Guy
Instead there was just a solitary wagon destined for the Watts Blake Bearne ball clay siding. This was located on the Heathfield branch at Newton Abbot. Many thanks Ron.
