Electric loco variety, 1980 - 2016

Locally class 86 and 90 remain regular performers with Freightliner, GBRf's class 92 remain uncommon, DB 92's are now rare being primarily Channel tunnel based.  A few "roarer" phots added for interest too!

Ledburn, 040815

04081592010r.jpg Sadly the use of 92's on the sleepers was short lived, heres 92015 with 1M16 up "Royal Highlander".

Milton Keynes, 300116 thanks to Trev Rolfe

30011686259r.jpg 86259 gleaming at an otherwise dull Milton Keynes. "Les Ross" was working the Cumbrian Mountain Express and Trev advises of lively running down the Trent. Unfortunately the recent WCRC issues saw Feb 20th's CME caped.

Euston, 120388

12038885021r.jpg From a time when Euston was more interesting, 85021 roars off to the "A sidings"

Dudswell, 120380  thanks to Trev Rolfe

12038083006r.jpg 83006 looks good with the smart "BOC" tanks in tow, this afternoon working ran three times a week from North Wembley to Ditton.

04018281010r.jpg 81010 also looks good returning a refurbished 501 unit from Wolverton to Willesden
