Class 321 local finale, September 2015
First introduced on local services back in July 89 these fine BREL York built units may well have finished on local main line turns on September 18th 2015.
When new locally the 321's had class 317's and a few 310's plus loco hauled Cobblers as part of the then NSE proper railway make up.
Unless things change, 26 years of service finally ended in Sep 2015 with the very last turns expected on the "Abbey Flyer" on Sunday Sep 20th.
LOROL are expected to take 2 321's on short term hire, whilst Scotrail beckons via Doncaster Works for the other 5 surviving ex LM units.
A full history of our local 321s will follow in a few months....Contributions/photos/memories welcome.
