Pioneer main-line Bo-Bo Electric locomotive at Harold Wood station
Pioneer main-line Bo-Bo Electric locomotive at Harold Wood station
View NE, towards Colchester etc. on the ex-GE main line from Liverpool Street. No. 26002 was new and only the second of the production series of these Class EM1 locomotives built by Metropolitan-Vickers for the 1,500v overhead electrification between Manchester and Sheffield/Wath, which was currently in progress but not completed until June 1954. Here it was only November 1950, but the main line Liverpool Street - Shenfield had been electrified since September 1949. The locomotive's regenerative braking system may have been under test here, as it is coming down Brentwood Bank.
