Class 33's on the Marches 1981-1986 (and beyond)

Class 33's were introduced on Marches turns with the May 81 timetable. They

were to continue on the route until late 1986. As per the list below a good few

different "Cromptons" worked the Marches (77 different 33's so far). 33'1s were

officially barred from the route as the Southern needed them for push pull duties

but at least 4 different 33'1s have produced!

Thanks to Dave Spencer, GK and "TC" for much of the gen<

Anymore Marches Cromptons memories to share?
