Guisborough Box Diagram

This must be a fairly rare image, Guisborough Box (and line) are long gone, just surviving into the diesel era.

Class 37s at Huntcliffe (1986)

Class 37s at Huntcliffe (1986)

A late afternoon shot by the look of it, enough haze to fool the exposure meter, but definitely a pair of 37s, both in different BR liveries – the front one sporting the frog-eye headcode boxes.

Class 37 at Salburn (1987)

Class 37 at Salburn (1987)

The Class 37, like the 25 and the 20, is the unsung hero of the diesel era. A scaled down Class 40 it has pulled everything under the sun, single, double and triple-headed!

Class 37 Carlin How (Early 80s)

Class 37 Carlin How (Early 80s)

There is something about black and white and railway images, they just seem to go well together. Here, a Class 37 and a train of empties head across the new bridge at Carlin How enroute to Boulby for loading.

Class 20s at Boulby (1987)

Possibly the same pair as the other post, just rolling with the loaded train.

Slightly contre-jour, a photo of a couple of Class 20s in the classic nose-to-nose configuration, leaving the loading yard at Boulby Potash, bound for Saltburn Junction.

Class 20s Saltburn West (1987)

I told Russ that my favourite diesels were Class 20s, Class 25s and Class 37s – there follows a whole series of lovely images from that privileged track-side position.

Class 37 from Boulby Potash

Class 37 from Boulby Potash

A Class 37, number 37515, passes through Carlin How with a trainload of Potash from Boulby.
Notice the panel over the aperture left from the removal of the nose doors.

DMU on the Boulby Mineral Railway Line!

DMU on the Boulby Mineral Railway Line!

Taken from the bridge at Carlin How, a trainspotter’s special, or was it for Cleveland Potash’s Open Day? Raymond tells me it’s from the early to mid-80’s – the DMU colour scheme fits that era anyway!

All Gone Now!

All Gone Now!

A long while later and the platform has gone, the car park has arrived and a special makes its way from Redcar towards Black Bridge (must be a preserved loco on a charter run).
