37130 at Bamber Bridge.
In time-honoured fashion, Class 37 37130 digs in as it approaches Bamber Bridge with the Summer only Blackpool North to Sheffield working on May 29th 1982. This service had run out and back for many years and brought the welcome sight of an Eastern Region 37 or if you were lucky a 31, to the Lancashire Coast. 1982 was the last year of loco-haulage, in 1983 the service went over to DMU operation. The service did not operate in 1984, bringing to an end another chapter in BR Summer holiday traffic.
