Spring 2007 updates

21 April 2007

A quick round up of some of Spring's OTP news.


A trip to Booth's scrapyard at the end of March showed just one item of plant remaining - 76314. Everything else has been scrapped, including a lot of machines marked as "do not cut".

One cab of 73264 also remains - in use as a small shed.

These were joined at the beginning of April by a selection of Hexthorpe's demics - 96504, 96508, 96512, 96513 and 96514. It is not yet known whether 96511 followed/will follow.
