      Moody conditions - very nice. I guess that's the BOC train - is the first vehicle a barrier wagon?

      It's a barrier wagon at the front, it had another one at the rear. This was a special train it only had about 6 tanks on and one loco, the normal train was always double headed with 10 tanks. Something has gone wrong at Broughton Lane I can't remember what but they ran a half train.

      In later years the BOC train ran without barrier wagons though. Did someone decide that the goods were less hazardous than originally thought or was it carrying a different product?

      This is a lovely atmospheric shot. And typical weather ?

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called British Rail Class 76 & 77, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      I didn't want to swamp your Class 76 & 77 Group with my photos, as obviously I have quite a few with having worked on the line.

      Thanks for posting. Please swamp - I love your photos. Would also be pleased to read about your experiences of working on the line and photographing the trains.

      Ade - BOC and other chemical/oil trains had to have a barrier wagon due to the regulations of the time. The requirement was later removed as the relative light weight of the barriers against the loaded wagons was thought to be the cause of a few derailments.

      Aha, thanks.
