234 DFDS Liner

I find it interesting that the loco screw coupler is not tightened all the way and there is a good amount of slack in it there even if it was.


The normal practice is for the wagon coupling to be attached to the locomotive-e.g an 071 loco,but because locos 218 and 234 and all the other 201s can be fitted with a buckeye coupler for working Mk4 trains this type of red screw coupling is fitted for working freight trains or in some cases the RPSI Cravens or Mk2 set,

A removable plate is fitted over the hook to prevent the screw coupling from working free,

If the instantor type coupling that is fitted to most freight wagons was coupled to this type of locomotive the it would be impossible for it to be removed and would be wedged firmly over the red coupling and would possibly have to be cut off.

BTW-great photos there Sean-make sure your out for 234's return from Waterford on Monday morning with the DFDS liner.:tumbsup:
