    All Our Yesterdays – 55 Years Ago –January 1960

    Extracts from the RCTS Railway Observer from 55 years ago.

    Diesel locomotive building was in full swing with British Railways workshops at Horwich building class 08’s, Doncaster building class 03’s, Derby building class 24’s, Crewe building class 08’s and class 24’s and Swindon building class 03’s and class 42’s (as well as the last of the class 9F 2-10-0 steam engines). Locomotive contractors were also in production with English Electric building at Vulcan Foundry class 40’s and at the Robert Stephensons and Hawthorn works class 20’s, British Thompson and Houston were building class 15’s, Brush were building class 30’s (31’s) at Loughborough, North British Locomotive Co. were building a batch of 0-4-0 diesel hydraulic shunters, and class 22’s, the Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Co. were building class 33’s and class 81 ac electric locomotives, Andrew Barclay were building class 06’s and Hunslet class 05.

    New locomotives:
    Class 9F – 92218/19
    Unclassified – D2745
    Class 03 – D2079/80, D2128/29/30
    Class 05 – D2594/95
    Class 06 – D2429/30
    Class 08 – D3832/33/34/35/36/37/38/39/40/66/67
    Class 15 – D8217
    Class 20 – D8031
    Class 22 – D6305/08/09/10/11/12/13/14/15
    Class 24 – D5058/60/61/62/63/64/69/70
    Class 30 – D5578/79/80/81/82/83/84/85
    Class 33 – D6500

    Class 42 – D814 Dragon, D815 Druid
    Class 44 - D9 Snowden
    Class 81 – E3002

    Notable withdrawals were the last of class of two small classes of Great Western Railway 0-4-0T’s 1106 and 1144 and the last C13, 4-4-2T 67417 and C14, 4-4-2T, 67450, both classes designed by JG Robinson of the Great Central Railway.

    St Pancras – Bedford suburban services were dieselized on the 11th January 1960 using four car class 127 DMU’s.

    Day time through services from Manchester to London Marylebone ceased on the 4th January 1960.

    D5578 (Electric Blue) and D5579 (Golden Orch) were delivered in experimental liveries at the request of the Eastern Region due to the green livery blending into the countryside and coupled to the relatively quite operation of a diesel locomotive has resulted in several trackside fatalities.

    The first class 33, D6500 was officially accepted into traffic although it had arrived at Hither Green MPD on the 17th December 1959.

    D238 received a new bogie at Haymarket on the 19th January 1960 due to accident damage following collision with a steam locomotive in mid December 1959. Two steam breakdown cranes (from Motherwell and St Margaret’s) were used to lift the locomotive clear of the damaged bogie.

    Crew training with York class 40’s commenced on the 21st January 1960 between York and Scarborough initially using D251/52.

    During the month fifty three steam locomotives were withdrawn spread over thirty different classes. The more modern designs were still virtually exempt from condemnation with fifty two of those withdrawn being built before the start of the Second World War in 1939, thirty nine were built prior to the Grouping in 1923 and ten were built prior to the start of the 20th Century in 1900. Among the withdrawals were the last two North British Railway C15 4-4-2T’s 67460/74. They were designed by Reid and the thirty locomotives of the class were delivered in three batches between 1911 and 1913. Initially, they were put to work hauling suburban services to Edinburgh and Glasgow. They also hauled services along the Clyde Coast and stopping trains on the main line between Edinburgh and Glasgow. Withdrawals started in 1953 and the two “push-pull” fitted C15s working the Craigendoran and Arrochar branch were the last to be withdrawn when they were replaced by diesel railbuses.

    The class 21’s D6100 – D6109 in store at Peterborough awaiting a decision on there future allocation having been displaced from GN suburban, empty passenger and local duties by new class 31’s D5586 – D5595 and have been transferred north to Scotland in pairs between the 5th April 1960 and the 22nd April 1960. Also a start was made in transferring the Hornsey allocation of class 26 locomotives (D5300 – 19) to Scotland with D5300/01 going north on the 12th April 1960 followed by D5302/03 on the 21st April 1960.

    Class 76 locomotives E26048 and E26057 have been noted carrying the names Hector and Ulysses respectively.

Amongst the withdrawals was Great Western Railway Castle class 4-6-0 4073 Caerphilly Castle, withdrawn after a career of almost thirty seven years. It was the first of the class built and would enter preservation and is still in existence fifty five years later. Also withdrawn was Great Western Railway 0-6-0PT 5764 however this was sold to the London Transport Executive thus prolonging its life and leading eventually to its preservation.

    The transfer of the Hornsey allocation of class 26 locomotives (D5300 – 19) to Scotland continued during May 1960 with D5304/05/07/08 transferring to Haymarket. Also Finsbury Park MPD opened with Hornsey’s allocation transferring to the new depot.

    The diesel facilities at Haymarket MPD were completed and main line diesel locomotives no longer used Leith Central MPD for fuel, servicing or maintenance.

    Class 40 D210 was named Empress of Britain at Euston on the 12th May 1960.

    During the month ninety nine steam locomotives were withdrawn spread over forty six different classes. This month was to see the first withdrawals of the more modern designs, in this case four Great Western Railway 16xx -0-6-0 tanks and four Great Western Railway 84xx 0-6-0 tanks which although the designs originated from the Great Western railway were actually built under British Railways during 1950/51 and less than ten years old. Of the remaining ninety one locomotives withdrawn forty two were built before the start of the Second World War in 1939, thirty six were built prior to the Grouping in 1923 and eleven were built prior to the start of the 20th Century in 1900.

    The first of the North British Type 4 Warship diesel hydraulics (class 43) D833 Panther was on trial between Glasgow and Dumfries.

    Ayr MPD has received its allocation of five class 06’s shunters (D2434 – 38), duties being two at Ayr Harbour, one at Ayr Goods, one Ayr MPD pilot and one at Troon Harbour.

    During the week ending 4th June 1960 seventeen out of the twenty Metro-Vic Type 2’s (D5700 – 19) were stopped for repairs at Cricklewood and Derby MPD’s

    During the month sixtyone steam locomotives were withdrawn spread over thirty four different classes. This month was to see the continued withdrawal of the relatively modern Great Western Railway 16xx -0-6-0 tanks and Great Western Railway 84xx 0-6-0 tanks which although the designs originated from the Great Western Railway were actually built under British Railways. Of the remaining fifty nine locomotives withdrawn fifty seven were built before the start of the Second World War in 1939, twenty six were built prior to the Grouping in 1923 and thirteen were built prior to the start of the 20th Century in 1900.

    Great Western Railway 2-6-2T 4566 was the last steam locomotive to be given a classified repair at Newton Abbot before the workshops went over to diesel overhauls. It was released to traffic on the 15th July 1960.

    The new Diesel depot at Allerton opened on the 10th July 1960.

    During the month ninety five steam locomotives were withdrawn spread over forty four different classes. This month was to see a further six of the relatively modern Great Western Railway 16xx, 57xx and 94xx 0-6-0 pannier tanks withdrawn, which although the designs originated from the Great Western Railway were actually built under British Railways. Of the remaining eighty nine locomotives withdrawn eighty seven were built before the start of the Second World War in 1939, forty nine were built prior to the Grouping in 1923 and fifteen were built prior to the start of the 20th Century in 1900. Amongst the withdrawals was the last Midland Railway 0-4-4T, 58086 and also Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway class 27 0-6-0 53233 which survived withdrawal and can currently be found on the East Lancashire Railway

    Class 24 D5085 entered traffic almost four months after D5084 (April) and D5086 (May), I wonder why it was delayed?

    During the month eighty seven steam locomotives were withdrawn spread over forty six different classes. This month was to see a further three relatively modern Great Western Railway engines withdrawn, which although the designs originated from the Great Western Railway were actually built under British Railways. Of the remaining eighty four locomotives withdrawn eighty were built before the start of the Second World War in 1939, forty seven were built prior to the Grouping in 1923 and seventeen were built prior to the start of the 20th Century in 1900. The first London Midland and Scottish Railway Patriot 4-6-0, 45502 and non accident related Jubilee 4-6-0, 45609 were withdrawn this month along with the last North London Railway 0-6-0T, 58850, although 58850 would eventually enter preservation and can currently be found at the Bluebell Railway

    The Mirlees engined 200bhp diesel electric 0-4-0 shunter (D2999) on loan for some time from Brush was officially taken into British Railways stock.

    Electric haulage of normal services commenced between Manchester Piccadilly and Crewe on the 12th September 1960.

    The new diesel maintenance shed at Stratford, built on the site of the old Jubilee steam shed opened this month.

    The last three NBL type 2’s (D6110/11/14) left Stratford for Scotland on the 13th September thus eliminating the class from the Eastern Region. The reliability of this class was becoming more of an issue with twenty one locomotives (from a fleet of fifty four) out of service at St Rollox works on the 7th September 1960.
