 Crewe Works Part 1


 What a line-up!


 LNER A4 Pacific number 60009 "Union of South Africa"


 Words are meaningless..........


 Back home where it was built so many years ago, class 9F, 2-10-0 number 92134. The irony is that some of the men working on the re-build actually worked on this class when they were first built in the 1950's.


 Majestic work horse.


 What a paint job! 08830 in LNWR livery.


 Do you remember this one in "Dutch" livery and looking somewhat work worn?


 With sanders running, 37410 drags 47798 "Prince William" from the entrance road to allow it to be pushed back on to the traverser.


 Later, 410 was seen posing on the traverser riding up and down in "demo" mode.


 More Stanier magic in the form of class 8F, 48151.


 Retro painted AC electric number 87001, soon to be renamed at the open weekend.


 More strangers in the form of GWR Hall Class number 4936 "Kinlet Hall".


 All brass and copper number 4965 "Rood Ashton Hall".


 And finally......the sad remains of 47844, originally scheduled for conversion to a class 57 locomotive but clearly things did not turn out too well and this mere shell of an engine awaits its fate. I photographed this engine at Crewe hauling the Brighton-Edinburgh, Sussex Scot, on 6th October 2001.
