Re: Winter 1991 + changes

Post by Peter Hall » Tue Jan 24, 2017 10:17 am

MisterC has kindly provided details of the ECML trains diverted and dragged between Peterborough and Doncaster in the winter of 1991. These have now been added to the website and can be found at https://www.rcts.org.uk/branches/sheffi ... ter%201991

The opportunity was also taken to attempt to fix some of the problems and make a few changes to the ECML Drags https://www.rcts.org.uk/branches/sheffi ... eld/draggs feature. This now includes the information about ECML Class 90 workings previously only available on the Sheffield Branch page. Hopefully this will make things easier for those interested in current ECML operations to check the latest Class 90 information, 90036 being in use today, as well as previous usage and planned future and past dragging all in one place.

Some changes have also been made to the Sheffield Branch page. https://www.rcts.org.uk/branches/sheffield/index.htm continues to include ECML Class 90 information as before, now in a separate section. Information is also carried about planned dragging as well as details of the last two planned dragging sessions and a link to earlier sessions.

A few minor tweaks are still needed which are beyond my powers or my attempts end in disaster but these do not affect access.

The website now lists thirty five different sessions of dragging and quite possibly there were others in the 1990's that we have overlooked. For many though we still lack certain details whilst in many cases not a single photographs been submitted for use. Surely amongst the membership of Britain's Leading Railway Society their are those who have observed, travelled on and photographed these trains and can thus make a contribution.

1S05 0600 KGX-EDB down through Royston at 06:41 class 67+class 91+MkIVs. Too dark for loco identification, but later local reports say 67021 dragging 91129.

1S07 0647 KGX-EDB 43315/43320 down through Royston at 07:28.

1A01 0505 LDS-KGX 43044/43082 up through Royston 07:49.

1N90 0720 KGX-SUN 43468/43480 down through Royston 07:57.

Problem under investigation at Hatfield 1A01 and 1S09 diverting via HFN.

1S05 lost more time leaving Peterboro and thereafterwards not passing Ranskill until 09:00.

91129 confirmed as train loco with DVT 82210? at rear


43238 (NRM Vinyls) sth on 1E03 passed Torworth in up direction at 09:30, so no need to drag this one on its Fenland adventure

Here is one from 22/10/2011 at Peterborough, when there was great difficulty in getting the 67 to 'talk' to the DVT to head north.

Looking on Railcam, a filthy 67024 (except for a cleaned section over the west bodyside number), is confirmed as heading this formation into Peterborough, but the 225 set numbers could not be clearly seen from the camera angle.
