    All Our Yesterdays – 60 Years Ago –January 1957

    Sixty years ago Standard class steam locomotives were still in production and diesel shunter production was progressing at a steady rate. There was also a steady flow of new diesel multiple units.

    In the month seventy steam locomotives were withdrawn, thirty three being over fifty years old with Midland Railway 0-6-0 58142 being the oldest at eighty two years old.

    I have photographed some of the above later in life and it can be found in this collection. As always feedback and comments welcome.

    The one that I remember was 58246 which was the only one to last that long with its original round-top firebox and traditional Midland safety valve cover. I think that it went the following year.

    In the month fifty two steam locomotives were withdrawn, twenty nine being over fifty years old with Midland Railway 1142 Class 0-6-0 58156 being the oldest, having been built by Beyer Peacock, entering traffic in April 1876 and condemned seventy nine years later. The majority of these withdrawals were the older main line secondary passenger engines and freight engines who were at the bottom of the cascade of power from the continued delivery of the Standards and Diesel Multiple Units. Only four locomotives condemned were Post Grouping designs, namely two from the unremarkable London Midland and Scottish Railway 7F, 0-8-0 class, a London Midland and Scottish Railway 2-6-0-0-6-2T Garret (being replaced by the far more modern a versatile Standard 9F) and a London and North Eastern Railway class V4, 2-6-2 which was one of a class of only two locomotives and therefore “non standard”

    This month was the first month when new Class 08 shunters were delivered with D prefixes in stead of the 13 series numbers. However the private contractors would continue to deliver their new shunting locomotives with the old 11 series numbers until November 1957 when they switched over to the D prefix.

    In the month fifty seven steam locomotives were withdrawn, thirty being over fifty years old with Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway 1142 Class 0-6-0 58121 being the oldest, having been built Kitsons, entering traffic in June 1875 and condemned just short of eighty two years later. The majority of these withdrawals were the older main line secondary and branch line passenger engines and old freight engines who were at the bottom of the cascade of power from the continued delivery of the Standards and Diesel Multiple Units. Ten locomotives condemned were built post the 1923 grouping, namely two Great Western Railway tank engines (a 58xx 0-4-2T and a 45xx 2-6-2T), a Southern Railway N15 4-6-0, three London Midland and Scottish Railway Class 4P 4-4-0’s, a 7F, 0-8-0 and a 2-6-0-0-6-2T Garrett, and a London and North Eastern Railway D16 4-4-0 and an A5 4-6-2T. Only three of these ten locomotives however were post grouping designs.

    All Our Yesterdays – 60 Years Ago –August 1957

    Sixty years ago Standard class steam locomotives were still in production with fourteen locomotives delivered in the month. Diesel shunter production was progressing at a steady rate with seventeen locomotives delivered in the month and the pilot series diesels had commenced delivery. There was also an increasing flow of new diesel multiple units.

    In the month sixty six steam locomotives were withdrawn, thirty being over fifty years old with North Eastern Railway J77 Class 0-6-0T 68426 being the oldest, having been built at Darlington Works, entering traffic in June 1879 and condemned seventy eight years later. The majority of these withdrawals were the older main line secondary and branch line passenger engines and old freight engines who were at the bottom of the cascade of power from the continued delivery of the Standards and Diesel Multiple Units. Seventeen locomotives condemned were built post the 1923 grouping, however only twelve could be considered as a post grouping design.

    A number of the above were photographed later in life and can be found in this collection. As always feedback and comments welcome
