37800 at Hamstead
37800 approaches Hamstead with 5Q76 Allerton - Newport Docks. This shot was taken at 12:31 on Tuesday 9th January 2024. The units behind the 37 were 319385 and 319372, both off for scrap. Several similar trains from Allerton had run in the previous weeks, as well as a couple from Northampton also conveying 319s to Newport for disposal. It's odd seeing trains in superficially good nick going to the breakers, all my memories of such trains involved rolling stock that had been lying around for ages, and was visibly wrecked or robbed for spares. I doubt anyone who didn't already know and saw this train would be able to guess its purpose.
