55007 (D9007)


55007 is about to be relieved by 55010 at York on 7th March 1981 whilst BRCW DMU E50583 looks on from a bay platform on the right. This view has recently been featured on a compact disc containing sound effects of Class 55 (no I didn't record it!!)

The Green Howards

55008 stands at Edinburgh Waverley awaiting the 0550 London King's Cross - Aberdeen which it worked forward. The train was booked for a Deltic from London - Edinburgh for a class 47/4 forward. On this day (24th August 1981) it was the other way round!

From above we see 55008 crossing the Forth Bridge on it's way to Aberdeen.

55008 encountered braking problems whilst working the 1045 York - London King's Cross (1A37) of 15th July 1980. 46034 was attached and the duo gave a very lively performance. They are seen here at Grantham.
