    All Our Yesterdays – 55 Years Ago –January 1962

    Diesel and Electric locomotive building was in full swing (although slowed down somewhat in this period due to the Christmas holiday) with British Railways workshops at Darlington building class 10’s, Horwich building class 08’s and 09’s, Doncaster building class 85 electric locomotives, Derby building class 46 “Peaks” and Swindon building class 03’s. Locomotive contractors were also in production with English Electric building at Vulcan Foundry class 40’s and also English Electric were building at the Robert Stephensons and Hawthorn works, Darlington class 20’s. Beyer Peacock at Manchester were building class 35 Hymek’s and class 82 electric locomotives, Brush were building class 30’s (31’s) at Loughborough, North British Locomotive Co. at Glasgow were building, class 43’s and the Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Co. were building class 27 and class 33’s.

    New locomotives:
    Class 03 – D2178/79
    Class 08 – D4115/16
    Class 09 – D4113/14
    Class 10 – D4081/82/83
    Class 20 – D8110/11/12
    Class 27 – D5366/67/68/69/70/71/72/73
    Class 30 – D5829/30/31
    Class 33 – D6583/84/85
    Class 35 – D7016/17/18
    Class 40 – D372/73/74
    Class 43 – D859 Vanquisher, D860 Victorious
    Class 46 – D151/53
    Class 82 – E3053
    Class 85 – E3067

    In the month eighty eight steam locomotives were withdrawn with 1962 seeing a real start being made on the more modern designs. Whilst the odd post World War Two constructed locomotive had been condemned in the previous couple of years most notably GWR designed Hawkesworth 84xx 0-6-0 pannier tanks and LNER designed Class L1 2-6-4 tanks this month would see further 84xx and L1 tanks withdrawn along with LMS designed Ivatt 2-6-0’s and LNER designed B1 4-6-0’s.

    A number of the above were photographed later in life and can be found in this collection. As always feedback and comments welcome

    In the month one hundred and twenty steam locomotives were withdrawn with 1962 seeing a real start being made on some of the more iconic designs as well as further inroads into the post World War Two constructed pre nationalisation designs of the GWR, LMS and LNER. Iconic classes to see their first condemnations were the GWR King class 4-6-0 (6006) and the LNER Gresley V2 class 2-6-0 (60850, 60960/77). This month would see further post war built GWR 16xx and 84xx pannier tanks and LNER B1 4-6-0’s and L1 tanks withdrawn.

    The first electro-diesel (class 73) E6001 was on trials from Eastleigh on the 5th February 1962.

    In the month steam locomotive withdrawals increased dramatically, up from one hundred and twenty five steam locomotives in April to one hundred and eighty two in May 1962. A major factor in this increase was the withdrawal of no less than forty five GWR 57xx pannier tanks in the month. The month would see a continuation of withdrawals from most of the remaining pre-nationalisation designs including a steady trickle of post World War Two constructed locomotives.

    From the beginning of May the 08:10 St Pancras – Nottingham and the return 12:00 Nottingham – St Pancras have been rostered for a pair of recently delivered BRCW Type 2 locomotives (class 27).

    In the month steam locomotive withdrawals remained steady at one hundred and eighty two in May 1962. This month would see the decimation of the London Midland and Scottish Railway, Stanier 3 cylinder 2-6-4 tanks with twenty eight out of a class of thirty seven condemned. Also heavily hit were the London Midland and Scottish Railway, Fowler “Patriot” 4-6-0 class with ten locomotives condemned and three relatively modern London North Eastern Railway, B1 4-6-0 class also were condemned. However the most notable steam withdrawals were the first of the Great Western Railway King class 4-6-0’s (6003/04/08/10/13/23/24) were withdrawn.

    Gresley Pacifics commenced working the 3-hour Aberdeen – Glasgow Buchanan Street services with A4 60011 and A3’s 60087/90/94 all being noted.

    In the month steam locomotive withdrawals declined slightly from one hundred and eighty two in June 1962 to one hundred and seventy two. The steady delivery of main line diesels and the decline of the Pre Grouping classes would see an increase in the number of the Post Grouping designed locomotives condemned. For example this month would see eleven London Midland and Scottish Railway, Stanier 2 cylinder 2-6-2 tanks condemned. However it was the Great Western Railway fleet that was really starting to pressure with twenty 4-6-0 engines (including another three Kings) and twenty nine 0-6-0 pannier tanks (three of which were less than ten years old) condemned At least one engine escaped being broken up, Great Western Railway Class 45xx 2-6-2T 4588.

    A number of the above were photographed later in life and can be found in this collection. As always feedback and comments welcome

    In the month steam locomotive withdrawals declined from one hundred and seventy two in July 1962 to one hundred and forty four. The steady delivery of main line diesels and the decline of the Pre Grouping classes would see an increase in the number of the Post Grouping designed locomotives condemned. A sign of the future was the withdrawal of BR Standard 4MT 80103, the first of the BR Standards to be condemned. Another notable steam withdrawal was Southern Railway 4-6-0 30850 Lord Nelson, London and North Eastern Railway V2 60800 Green Arrow and J17 65567 which all eventually entered preservation:
