    All Our Yesterdays – 60 Years Ago –January 1959

    Sixty years ago the last 9F 2-10-0 Standard class steam locomotives were still in production, diesel shunter production was in full swing as was delivery of the Pilot Scheme mainline locomotives. There was also a steady flow of new diesel multiple units.

    In the month one hundred and six steam locomotives were withdrawn, forty two being over fifty years old with Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway 23 Class 0-6-0ST 51313 being the oldest, having entering traffic in March 1877 and condemned eighty one years later. The majority of these withdrawals were the older secondary main line and branch line passenger engines, steam shunting engines and older freight engines being displaced by the continued delivery of the last of the 9F standards, the pilot scheme main line diesels, diesel multiple units and diesel shunting engines. Thirty five engines condemned were built post the 1923 grouping with the youngest engine condemned being Great Western Railway 0-6-0PT 3740 at only twenty one years old.

    In the month one hundred and twenty steam locomotives were withdrawn, forty two being over fifty years old with London Brighton and South Coast Railway E1R Class 0-6-2T 32135 being the oldest, having entering traffic in January 1879 as a 0-6-0T (rebuilt in the 1928 as a 0-6-2T) and condemned eighty years later The majority of these withdrawals were the older secondary main line and branch line passenger engines, steam shunting engines and older freight engines being displaced by the continued delivery of the last of the 9F standards, the pilot scheme main line diesels, diesel multiple units and diesel shunting engines. Forty three engines condemned were built post the 1923 grouping and one was built post nationalisation in 1948, this being Great Western Railway 0-6-0PT 7438 at only ten years old.
