Luton - Tues July 22nd 1975 (0800-1230)

Plenty of the inevitable class 45'1 action on this July day. The Summer holidays meant

very little freight traffic but what did run got power variety in class 25, 31, 45'0 and 47.

25 locos in just over 4 hours, 17 of which were 45'1s!

07017745105r.jpg The last loco viewed that July morning was 45105. Heres 45105 arriving at Luton on January 7th 1977. By this time headcodes were no longer carried, an 0000 in the box making detailed spotting logs such as that for July 22nd 1975 much more challenging.
