37042 at Kingsbury Link
37042 leads the 6G42 Birch Coppice - Bescot trip through Kingsbury Link at 10:43 on Wednesday 19th May 2004. Kingsbury Link is an industrial estate about half way along the Birch Coppice branch line, and this shot was taken from the then fairly new road bridge providing access to that estate. At this stage the container terminal hadn't been built, and the Bescot trip was the main traffic on the revived branch line. Unrepeatable now, as the traffic flow has ceased and EWS/DBS no longer operate any Class 37 locos. Only container trains use the branch these days. 37042 was withdrawn from traffic in January 2005, but was eventually acquired for preservation at the Eden Valley railway.
