45066 Brockhampton 18 September 1982

My only picture of a split headcode Class 45 in BR service. 45066 heads north at Brockhampton (near Cheltenham) on 19 September 1982 with a rake of HBA domestic coal hoppers, presumably en-route to Washwood Heath. 45066's headcode was plated over at Crewe Works the following year. It was withdrawn in 1987, but after a short stay along with all the other withdrawn Peaks at March, it was reinstated as departmental 97413. It lasted less than a year in that role, and was scrapped at M.C. Metals, Springburn, in early 1992.
