Abandoned Lines and Stations : A miscellaneous collection of photos of disused stations and lines throughout East Anglia. Some of these shots were taken nearly 40 years ago. A lot has changed in that time, Some of the stations no longer exist having disappeared under housing estates and road improvements. Bridges and other infrastructure are disappearing at an increasing rate, although some of the Victorian architecture has been preserved.  References used for dates and information unless otherwise stated,  Forgotten Railways (East Anglia) R.S. Joby and A Regional History of The Railways of Great Britain Volume 5 by Don Gordon.

The 67s : The class 67 (EMD type JT 42HW-HS) was ordered by EWS primarily for mail traffic, which they worked away from the electrified network until Royal Mail abandoned rail, and EWS, in 2001. Since then they have continued to find work both on freight and, more recently, as frontline passenger power with Scotrail, open access operator Wrexham, Shropshire and Marylebone, Chiltern Railways and Arriva Trains Wales. In terms of livery most still wear the EWS maroon and gold, but a number were repainted for Wrexham and Shropshire and continue in the same livery for Chiltern whilst two wear the blue of DBS subsidiary Arriva Trains Wales. 67018 Keith Heller is in DB cherry red and sports a giant maple leaf in honour of its namesake, the Canadian CEO of EWS and DBS who retired back in early 2010. 67005 and 006 are in 'Royal' livery, 67026 sports a union flag on silver flanks and 67029 is decked in silver for use with the DBS Executive Train<br><br>
I think they are quite attractive machines as modern diesels go. Railfans nicknamed them Skips on account of their shape.<br><br>
This gallery celebrates their varied career, mainly taken since losing the mail contract.
