Re: End of the trams

I saw this happening-Coronation tram 1274 being loaded onto American Scientist as I recall at Meadowside in late 1962-early 1963 possibly on its way to the US.
I'm told it's in a museum in Maine and hasn't really been touched since its arrival!

Re: Training up

I took this 56 years ago at Haymarket on August 4th 1963 of D1527 which was the Haymarket training loco for the new Brush Type 4s.

1A22 was a Kings Cross to Edinburgh service in the days before 1E and 1S headcodes were adopted for ECML Anglo Scottish trains.
