    On This Day in History – 16A, 16C and 16F – 9th May 1971

    On this day forty three years ago it was a lovely spring day and I was out on my push bike for a tour of some “local” establishments. This is what I saw on my fifty mile plus cycle ride:

    Toton (16A)
    Class 08 (3039/44/56/58, 3249, 3345, 3400), class 20 (8009/13/15/35/36/72/81/99, 8111/15/34/35/55/60/70/73/80/85/86), class 25 (5230, 7521/58/60, 7617), class 45 (11/46/55/57/63/65/77/83/89, 115/26), class 47 (1713,1801/05/15),
    Derby (16C)
    Class 03 (2386/88), class 08 (3180/86, 3789), class 25 (5250), class 45 (36, 110/18), class 46 (140), class 47 (1989).
    Burton Wagon Works
    Class 08 (3050)
    Burton (16F)
    Class 08 (3025/59/82, 3790), class 20 (8003/12/62/67/77/88/98, 8137/41/42/45/51/57/61/63/65/74/81/82/89/94/98), class 25 (7509/59, 7604), class 47 (1825)

    Of note is that despite seeing forty six locomotives at Toton I failed to get all the way round the shed, which explains the lack of any class 44’s. Also you can see the decline of Burton on Trent as a railway centre, in 1971 the collieries, yards and sidings in the Burton - Coalville area could support at least six Burton allocated class 08 pilots and also eleven pairs of class 20’s plus a class 47 (out-stationed from Toton) for South Leicestershire coalfield colliery trip workings

    A number of the above were photographed later in life and can be found in this collection. As always feedback and comments welcome
