Reflection of an old engine
Way back in time, when I lived in Birmingham, I used to often go to Saltley Motive Power Depot, staying outside the wire of course, to see if there was anything interesting. Ocasionally there was something worth photographing but as the years progressed the variety of locomotives there became less as the railways standardised even further. This was one of the last pictures I took there in October 2002.
Class 37 diesel, number 37175, in what was called then I believe Dutch Engineering livery, not long before it was withdrawn from service and put into store. It was eventually sold into the heritage sector and is currently running on the Bo'ness and Kinneil railway after spending time on the Seven Valley, Keigthley and Worth Valley and East Lancashire Railways.
It's all changed...
