Q13.05. Stored 78000s at Toton Shed.

Shortly after moving to the East Midlands, a member visited Toton shed on 6th August 1966 (possibly an open day?) and found steam locomotives 78013/21/28/44/55/61 present, all stored. A later visit on 12th December revealed that all except 78061 had been transferred away, but that had been joined by 78064, transferred in only a matter of weeks before the shed officially closed to steam in the November.

Did this class of loco perform any duties in the area, or were they refugees from other sheds as they closed?
