That is a fine contrast in Chruchward & Collett examples of this once very numerous class Les. I used to see them every day in Bath
Les Auld: Not too common up north Chris, thanks for the comment.
Two good shots Les. That old Class 37 gets shunted around all over the place doesn't it.
Les Auld: It does indeed Brian, thanks for the comment.
Apparently 3850 once pulled the Devonian into Exeter in August 1957.
Les Auld: No surprise there then Bill, they did do all sorts of work. Thanks for the comment.
