On summer Saturdays, there are a number of through trains from Great Yarmouth to London Liverpool Street to cater for the holiday trade. This involves a Class 47 hauling a Class 90 electric loco and coaches over the non-electrified lines from and to Norwich. On arrival back at Norwich, the Class 90 takes the train to London. These are unusual workings as there are no through trains from Great Yarmouth to London, loco hauled trains on the Wherry Line are few and far between and electric locos are not normally seen on non-electrified lines.
Here on 1st August 2009, Direct Rail Services Class 47 No. 47 832 “Solway Princess” hauls Scot Rail Class 90 No. 90 024 on the 8:48 am empty stock working from Norwich Crown Point to Great Yarmouth. It is seen here passing Brundall Station. I guess the Class 90 is a long way from home………
Question by James Schneider: How old is a Airex-Eldorado model 1 (it’s a fishing reel)?
Answer by Tom Airex started making reels in the 40’s. They were associated with Lionel Train for a time. I’ve linked to an ad showing the Eldorado to have been advertised in 1958. I owned some Airex reels. They were pretty good for their time.
This is a man’s world, this is a man’s world But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl You see, man made the cars to take us over the road Man made the trains to carry heavy loads Man made electric light to take us out of the dark Man made the boat for the water, like Noah made the ark This is a man’s, a man’s, a man’s world But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl Man thinks about a little baby girls and a baby boys Man makes then happy ’cause man makes them toys And after man has made everything, everything he can You know that man makes money to buy from other man This is a man’s world But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl He’s lost in the wilderness He’s lost in bitterness Video Rating: 4 / 5
