This feature primarily gives details of locomotive hauled passenger trains that were of particular interest to enthusiasts because of their use of ‘out of the ordinary’ Diesel and Electric locomotives. The majority of these trains are/were of a seasonal nature or referred to as reliefs but not all.
The menu on the left takes you to pages detailing such trains.
Information about East Coast Main Line Drags and Class 90 highlights can be found here
Additional information about the trains covered is welcomed, particularly correcting, adding to, or filling gaps in our records of locomotives used. Pleaser contact Peter Hall with any additional information.
