Waiting for the Off
Waiting for the Off
The driver of 45009 chats with a member of station staff at the end of the platform. The topic of discussion may well be the late arrival of the second man - seen running along the platform with his bag over his shoulder and flask in hand! This class of loco was the mainstay of services from St. Pancras for over 20 years. The loco carries the headcode 1M49 - this designates it as an express passenger service with a destination in the London Midland Division. A year later all headcodes were set to 0000 as computerisation did away with the need for trains to be identified in this way. The windows were gradually blanked off and replaced by headlights.
