Early Diesel Locos

Recommended Posts

The pic of E407 was taken in Connolly (or Amiens St depending on the date) station. The loco is shunting one of the two centre carriage roads (one of which is now Plat 3). B159 is standing on Platform 3, the main departure line (now Plat 4) and in the foreground you can just see the loco release crossover from the 'Howth Bay' platform (now gone to allow the extension of P4) On the extreme left-hand side an ex-GNR(I)/GNRB van is standing in what today is Plat 1. The footbridge running across the front of the trainshed connected the main arrival and departure platforms in the GNR side of the station and continued on to the suburban loopline platforms. Its a great image of Connolly before it was modernised. And the thoughts of breakfast in the dining car travelling up the South Eastern - :drool:
