The Bridlington Merrymaker, Saturday 4th May 1974

 

A classic day out filling our note books with motive power galore! 47015 was unusual power for the St Pancras-Hull leg, 37104 working forward to Bridlington. We bailed at Hull to bunk "Botanic Gardens" with a 5 of the  rare (to us) Eastern 20's amongst the DMU's here. A long, long walk to Albert Dock  saw us view 08513 as pilot here.

Other highlights include:

44004 at Loughborough

SR unit 4358 at Beighton for scrapping

03158 as Hull Paragon pilot with match wagon

the rare 47381 at Rotherham

unrenumbered "rat" 7613 on Leicester shed, She was renumbered to 25263 10 days later, one of the last 25's to retain her old number so late into 1974.
