37072 Sheffield 1J26 17th Sep 1988
Saturday 17th September 1988 dawned cold & grey in Sheffield & was similarly uninviting at Skegness. Back at Sheffield late afternoon the weather had considerably improved as 37072 waits for the road to Derby Etches Park with the ECS off 1J26, the 1310 ex Skegness. Over the years several of the original split box machines gained the later centre box modification due to crash damage. Coincidentally a run of three were similarly treated: 072, 073 & 074 with 072 most unusually only gaining the later modification [complete with lamp brackets] at the fan end after a mishap on 29th September 1985 at Tyne Yard.
